Adoption Pre-Application

1. Thank you for your interest in adopting a Doberman from HADR! Our first priority is finding the best and last forever home for our Dobies. Please answer the following 13 questions to start the adoption process.

2. There are two parts to starting the adoption process: Completing the Pre-Adoption Application and then Completing the Adoption Application. You must complete both steps to continue with the adoption process.

3. We make every effort to match you with the doberman you select, however, things move very quickly and the dobie you select may be being adopted when you are entering your application. There is a dobie for everyone and frequently, the dobie you want might not be the best match for you and your family. We work hard to make the right matches so that every dog gets to their forever home.

4. There is a $10 non-refundable fee to apply to adopt a Dobie from HADR. Payment of this fee is not a guarantee of being approved to adopt.
