We currently have dogs being processed through foster care but not quite ready for adoption yet. Many of these dogs do not make it to our website as we have a waiting list of qualified applicants.  If you would like to be considered for any dogs in foster care, but not yet posted, or any dogs waiting to come into our rescue, please submit an application.

ADOPTION FEES* (effective Nov 1, 2013)

Puppies (less than 1 year old) $495
Dogs 1-2 years old $450
Dogs 3-5 years old $395
Dogs >6 years old $350

*Adoption fees do not represent the "purchase price" of a dog, because the fee does not cover the expenses of most dogs that come into the rescue.  The adoption fee is a donation to the organization to help offset expenses incurred while a dog is in foster care or rehabilitating, mostly veterinarian fees.  Without adoption fees and generous donations from our members and other supporting donors, we would not be able to operate or exist.  Adoption fees are non-refundable. 

We are proud to announce The Silas Dulak Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program.  Any dog adopted from DPRPA who achieves his CGC certificate qualifies for an award up to $150 to cover the cost of the class, or a 5-year DPRPA membership.

Note: This rescue rarely will have puppies available. Our mission is to rescue Dobermans from shelters or who may be in abusive or neglectful situations or losing their homes. Please take the time to read an inspirational message about adopting an older dog entitled "Too Old."
