Doberman Rescue Group, Inc.

Adoption/Foster Application

By completing this adoption/foster application now, you will expedite your Doberman Rescue Group, Inc. (DRG) adoption/foster process. If you have any questions regarding your application and/or the application process, please email adopt@dobermanrescuegroup.org or leave a voice mail at 918-365-0101. You must be a minimum of 21 years old to adopt a Doberman from DRG.

Our purpose is to find quality homes for abandoned and neglected Dobermans. Our rescue Dobermans are current on all vaccinations, heartworm preventative, and spay/neutered before placement. In order to fund the substantial superior quality veterinary care we provide for our rescue dogs, we ask for a $250.00 donation with every adoption. The adoption donation, payable at the time of adoption, covers only a portion of rescue expenses.  Additional funds are raised through fund raising events and donations. 

DRG is an ALL VOLUNTEER Non-Profit, Charitable Organization. It is recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) charity. Donations made to DRG are deductible on your Federal tax return. We gratefully accept donations of any amount. Every penny goes to help our beautiful Doberman friends. To make a tax-deductible donation, please make your check payable to "Doberman Rescue Group" and mail to P.O. Box 43, Bixby, OK 74008. Thank you for caring!

Your complete answers on this application will help us to make the best possible adoption match between you and a Doberman in our care. The more we know, the more confident we can be that your adoption/foster will be successful. It is very important that this application be completed fully and truthfully. The answers you submit on your application will be discussed by members of DRG.

Please be advised that this is an APPLICATION ONLY and is not an "Adoption Contract".

For more information about DRG, please feel free to contact us.
