Dobe Rescue is a non - profit 501(c)(3) organization, run strictly by volunteers. This allows public support and all donations to be tax deductible. Dobe Rescue is an independent organization and does not receive tax dollars from a governmental agency or financial support from a parent organization.The cost of operating Dobe Rescue is supported by contributions from individuals, memorial fund designations and various fund raisers. No money is spent other than covering the expenses of Dobermans. Our largest expense is for the medical care of abused, injured,and stray Dobermans. Dobe Rescue will not list any dog for adoption on PetFinder or our website that has not been seen by a veterinarian and brought up to date on all vaccinations,micro-chipped,as well as had time to rest and recover after any necessary surgery or special dietary needs,or the need to put on weight in the case of an emaciated animal.The cost of phone calls and mailing expenses are also absorbed by our volunteers.
