Welcome to doberman911.org, the website for Special Needs Dobermans (SND). We are an organization of people with a common goal of helping senior and special needs Dobermans. That need may be financial for Doberman Rescue Groups, or it may be only information and/or moral support for the owner of a Doberman with a serious illness or injury. We will also aid Rescue Groups in rehoming and fostering senior Dobermans they may place under their care. The financial aid we provide may come from donations, occasional online auctions or SND Store sales. Every precaution is taken to assure that the need is real.

Special Needs Dobermans recognizes the difficulty in placing aging Dobermans in loving homes. Doberman rescue groups have worked tirelessly to save and care for these precious creatures, and we would like to help you find them forever homes. We publicize the plight of Senior Dobes in addition to creating a national database and website dedicated to senior Dobes in need of families. Special Needs Dobermans Senior Doberman Project provides the website for Rescue Groups for publicizing their Senior Dobes needs. The Doberman community is truly reaching out to address this crucial cause. Please visit our page at www.doberman911.org/seniors. Find out what's being done to help our senior friends!

Gentleman Harvey is a special Senior. Rescued from being chained in a back yard, where the owner was afraid of him, he has blossomed under the care of his foster parents. He is now a Doberman who helps other abused Dobermans recover from their pasts. He loves other dogs, even small ones. He is beloved by his foster parents and is house trained and trustworthy when left alone in the home. Margo of San Antonio Doberman Rescue says it best, "There has never been a dog who has made such a huge recovery and who means as much to SADAR." Harvey has also had some health problems to overcome such as an auto immune disease that required eye surgery and expensive drops to hold the disease in check. Now Harvey is facing his biggest challenge to date - a rare and aggressive cancer that required his rear leg to be amputated. He will also be starting chemotherapy for the cancer. To send Harvey a Senior sponsorship, please visit his page at http://doberman911.org/seniors/cases/tx_harvey.html.
You can learn more about Mr. Harvey and many other Seniors who need your support by going to http://www.doberman911.org/seniors/cases. Here you can also help Doberman rescues across the country with their Seniors by sponsoring a Senior Doberman for $40 per month or $480 per year. Our goal is to encourage Rescues to take in more Seniors by helping them with the day to day expenses for routine medical care or just extras like nice comfy beds and toys to make their golden years the best yet. It's a great way to honor the life's of these older Dobermans, many of whom never knew love or care during their younger years.
If you have any questions about Mr. Harvey or any of our other beautiful Seniors, please email us at email@example.com. Thank you for your support!!
Special Needs Dobermans has placed a special focus on fundraising efforts to assist Senior Dobermans with their medical needs. Having provided a lifetime of love, devotion, and loyalty, these Seniors now find that they are faced with increasing debilitating medical problems. These loving seniors may be with a rescue group and seeking a forever homes or they may be in hospice care with their RescueAngels. Since the financial burden of providing necessary medical treatments is sometimes beyond the means of their caregivers, they apply to SND for financial assistance. While SND lists Seniors in Need both on our Newest Cases and on our Still In Need, we must help Seniors by reaching out to the Doberman community by raising funds for the Seniors Medical Fund. This fund is exclusively for Senior Dobes in the care of Rescue Groups. Here are four beautiful Seniors who have benefited from this great program:
Special Needs Dobermans is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation. We are able to help Dobermans thanks to the generosity of people like you!! Your donation to SND is tax deductible. All money donated on behalf of the Dobermans, every cent, goes towards their care.
The SND General Fund is used to get new Dobes that come our way some initial assistance. Donations made to this fund ensure that we'll always be able to help, now and in the future. Please consider making a contribution to the General Fund by using the PayPal Donation link below or by mailing in a donation. Thank you very much for helping us help Dobes in need!
