We are an all-volunteer organization of people with a common goal of helping Senior and special needs Doberman Pinschers. 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. SND maintains an "every penny" rule which guarantees that 100% of donations to the care of Dobermans is used ONLY for that purpose. Administrative costs are covered with proceeds from our online store, by designated donations and by occasional auctions specifically for that purpose.

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!

Murphy has the most unique coat we've seen on a Dobe in a long time. His coloring is a dark fawn, and fawn coats are usually quite thin, but his is super thick! It's like petting a different breed, but he's all Dobe. Murphy is a sweet older guy, the vet estimates 8 years, but he still has a lot of spunk in him. During his photo shoot he sat pretty and showed us how handsome and well-behaved he is. Due to his age, his back end is a little scrawny, but regular walks and maybe a little massage will bulk him up. His little nub wags when he's happy, and he was kind and friendly to a dog he met while we were walking on a leash. He has a happy bounce in his step on walks, and he just wants a nice person to hang out with. He rode nicely in the crate in the car from the shelter in Fort Wayne, Indiana where he wound up after his owner died. Murphy was very scared and confused when he first arrived at the previous shelter, but he is doing pretty well with us. Due to a lack of foster homes, he is currently being boarded in a nice facility we partner with, but he would love to hang out at your place instead. You can send Murphy a Senior Sponsorship by clicking here: http://www.doberman911.org/seniors/cases/il_murphy.html.
You can learn more about Mr. Murphy 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 lives of these older Dobermans, many of whom never knew love or care during their younger years.
If you have any questions about Mr. Murphy or any of our other beautiful Seniors, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
