Who We Are
Nice to meet you!
We are a growing statewide team of 100+ Doberman lovers, veterinarians, dog trainers, naturopathic veterinary healers, foster caregivers, dog walkers, shelter aides, administrators, and adopters who volunteer our time and resources to save fundamentally sound, purebred Doberman Pinschers from destruction or abuse.
We range in age from our early twenties to our mid-sixties, and we come in all shapes, sizes, and a variety of ethnicities. We don’t discriminate on the basis of age, ethnicity, gender identification, race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or sex. We accomplish our mission because we stay focused on it. We don’t talk politics or religion; we don’t tolerate infighting and office politics; and we understand that if we don’t support each other, we will place our mission severely at risk. If it’s destructive of our Mission, we just say NO! We love to support other Doberman organizations that share our values and operate using compatible procedures. With us, it really is all about the dogs.
We are governed by a Board of Directors who set policy and establish procedures for our volunteer staff. In addition, we are assisted by consultants and advisors to the Board who share executive-level experience in veterinary pathology and veterinary medicine, rescue operations, and fundraising.
