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!

Pookie is a sweet 10-year-old and 55-pound gal that was surrendered to a local city animal control by her owner. Her owner landed in the hospital with an illness and didn’t have any family to take Pookie in. Thankfully, the Animal Control Officer (a long-time Doberman lover) knew to reach out to us for assistance. About a year ago, Pookie was hit by a car. Her rear leg was severely burned by an exhaust pipe so it needed to be amputated. After all that she’s been through, Pookie is looking forward to new beginnings and second chances. She is very loving and well-mannered. She seems to be housebroken as she hasn’t had any accidents in her foster home. She doesn’t chew on anything and enjoys being a couch potato. She gets along with the resident dogs, but hasn’t been cat-tested. Pookie was able to adjust to being a tripod, but it’s clear that she should go to a ranch style home where she wouldn’t have to attempt stairs. She will be fine in a home with children 7 and up. To sponsor Pookie visit her page at http://doberman911.org/seniors/cases/il_pookie.html.
You can learn more about Miss Pookie 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 Miss Pookie 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:
