Are you trying to find Doberman rescues in your state? Finding info on adopting a Doberman dog can be tough, so I put together this organized list of Doberman rescues by state! Currently, this post has half of the research posted, showing info on rescuing Dobermans alphabetically, starting with Kentucky.

Doberman Rescues in the USA

Since moving into my first apartment, I’ve been contemplating getting a dog.

Two Dobermans, to be exact!

And, while doing all the things responsible dog owners *should do*, like learning about the breed, looking at how my daily life would need to change for walks, hiring a dog walker, finding a dog trainer, etc, I’ve also been looking for different rescues.

I found it hard to find Doberman rescues, so I actually ended up hiring someone on UpWork to put this info together for me! That way it’s all in one place, with all of the links situated.

Hot Tip: To use this list, use “CMND+F” to search the doc for the name of your state and/or neighboring states.

Hi, my name is Brianne, AKA “The Huntswoman”! I’ve been doing a lot of research and reading on Doberman dogs, in the hopes to have dobies in my life someday! Below, I’ve shared research on where to adopt Doberman doggos by state. Please keep in mind this is just info from the internet – please PLEASE do your own due diligence! Love ya!

Do Your Own Due Diligence! I haven’t visited ANY of these Doberman rescue groups!

Note: Including a rescue in this list doesn’t act as a recommendation for that Doberman rescue! Think of this as a sort of phone book with options. Be sure to do all of your due diligence when adopting a Doberman from a rescue – and consult experts!! I have visited ZERO of these Doberman rescues in the USA, and I can vouch for exactly NONE of them! Do your due diligence, and know that there are risks that come from rescuing a pet.
