Fostering is often the lifeline of Rescue, without fosters rescues are often unable to say yes to taking a shelter dog in danger of euthanasia or an owner surrender in a difficult situation. Fostering can be very rewarding, it's a way to give back to the breed we all love and a way to pay it forward as well. By opening your home to a rescued dog, you help us prepare a dog for a "Fureverhome" and when that dog is placed, it opens up a spot for another life to also be saved, the circle of life continues and we here at rescue simply cannot do what we do without wonderful foster homes like you.
FDR, Inc. is a foster home based Rescue, we do not have a kennel or facility and our rescued Dobermans are in various areas where we have the best of fosters. Our adoption process consists of an adoption application, we do verify employment, call for a history of care at your veterinarian, and speak with your two personal references provided. Once that checklist is complete a home visit is scheduled, then a determination is made and we will speak with you regarding the Dobermans in our program and those coming to help you find a match for your environment and lifestyle. We ask every potential adopter to complete a two or four-week trial period depending on the temperament of the dog, and we assist our families with acclimating their new addition into their home, offer training advice and more during the trial period. Once complete we verify both humans and Doberman are happy, not stressed and at this time finalize the contract.
