Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Illinois Doberman Rescue operates as a not-for-profit organization based in Northern Illinois. The goal of Doberman Rescue is to rescue Dobermans in need, to place them into responsible homes, and to educate the public about the Doberman breed. Our Rescue Dobermans come from animal control organizations, humane societies, and owner give-up situations within Illinois.
Our Rescue Dobermans come from animal control organizations, humane societies, and owner give-up situations within Illinois.
After entering the program, our Dobermans are spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, heartworm tested (and given monthly heartworm preventative), and microchipped (a computer microchip placed in the dog's lower neck for help with identification should the animal ever become lost). While awaiting adoption, most of our Dobermans live in foster homes throughout Illinois where we attempt to evaluate their temperaments, learn their behavioral quirks, and work on basic manners and obedience.
We endeavor to place each Doberman into a home best suited for that individual dog. Some factors we take into account include the dog's reaction to children, other dogs, and cats. We carefully screen all applicants since we want to ensure that each adoption is a good match and provides a permanent home for the dog. We maintain contact with our adoptive families and encourage them to contact us in case of any questions or problems.
If for any reason the rescued Doberman is not working out in its new home, the adoptive home is legally required to first contact IDR to allow us the option to accept (or decline) the return of the Doberman back into the IDR program.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES will we place our Dobermans into a home where they will be forced to live outside, or to serve as outdoor "guard" dogs. It is our most heartfelt desire that all of our "kids" be adopted into loving homes and be accepted as part of the family on a permanent basis. We only adopt to families within Illinos or the surrounding states. We also do not ship our dogs.
