Surrender Application

Instructions: Complete the form. Once we receive it, we'll review the information and contact you as soon as we can let you know if we can accept the animal into our program.  If you can't wait until we contact you, please click here to find out what else you can do.

Please do not expect that we can take your pet in immediately, we are rarely able to do so.

Houston Area Doberman Rescue is only able to accept pure-bred Doberman Pinschers into our program. If the dog is not a Doberman Pinscher, please contact a local all-breed rescue. It is extremely difficult to place breeds other than Doberman Pinschers through our rescue.

Please finish completing this form to make us aware and then take the dog to one of these animal shelters. They will alert us that a Doberman Pinscher has been dropped off. HADR is unable to accept "found" dogs into our rescue from anyone except legally compliant shelters.
