There are many ways to support Desert Harbor Doberman Rescue, including donating, fostering, supporting, and volunteering.

First of all, we need funding. Your gift decides the fate of one or more Dobermans, because if we can’t afford to vet, treat, and rehabilitate it, we can’t save it.

It costs us about $350 to place one healthy dog. But some dogs need way more care that that. Here’s how you can help:


$3500 pays for a compex abdominal surgery to remove life-threatening obstructions
$2500 pays for a hind-leg amputation
$1000 repairs a prolapsed eyeball suffered in a dog fight
$850 fixes a compound fracture
$300 cleans, drains, and sutures a serious bite wound, with pain meds and anesthesia
$250 gets a full dental cleaning, under anesthesia
$125 gets a simple spay
$100 gets 20 nights’ emergency boarding when we’re out of foster homes
$85 gets a simple neuter
$50 gets one used large crate
$35 gets a large bag of good quality kibble
$25 gets a good dog bed or a heartworm preventative pill
$20 gets the pain pills for a surgery
$15 gets a joint or coat supplement
$10 gets a safe and tasty large rawhide chew
$5 gets a belly band to help a lad get house trained 

Our volunteers donate most of our operating supplies, but we definitely need YOUR help to secure the following:

  • Liability insurance for our Board and officers
  • Shelter management software to track our dogs
  • Printing, publications, advertising, and PR
  • Communications — cell phones, service, web hosting
  • Transport — GPS service and gas
