DAR&E Adoption Process

DAR&E provides Doberman adoption to loving and responsible people.  All potential  adoptive families must read the Adoption Information below, then download our Adoption Application and send it to our Application Coordinator.  We will review your application and contact you.


To submit an application, follow these simple steps:

After you have submitted your application:

 Our adoption fees, as of 4/1/2009 are:

All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots and microchipped. Adoption fees should not be viewed as payments, but rather contributions to the rehabilitation and care of the dogs.

When you go to see a dog, be prepared! Take a leash and collar just in case you meet the dog of your dreams!

NOTE:  We don't take applications on specific dogs - placements are based upon the best possible match for the dog and the potential adopter. Don't miss out!  If you would like to adopt but don't see a dog right now that you think you'd like, fill out an application anyway. That way, you'll be approved and ready to go when a dog that interests you appears on the list. 

If you live outside this region, please go to for a Doberman Rescue group or a homeless Doberman in a shelter near you.

All adopters must sign an Adoption Contract, please review our contract prior to adoption. 

We do not adopt dogs outside of the tri-state area which includes Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and DC.
