Welcome to doberman911.org, the website for Special Needs Dobermans (SND). We are an organization of people with a common goal of helping senior and special needs Dobermans. 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.

The Senior Doberman Project

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!

April 20, 2014 through April 26, 2014

Meet Miss Sophie!!

I may be a Senior but I'm still eye candy!!
HEY!! There's no snow on this chimney!! 

I'd LOVE to have a sponsor while I wait!!

Gorgeous Sophie at 7 years-old was abandoned along with her 3 year-old daughter Abby by an owner who left them in an outdoor cage without food or water. Worried neighbors purchased food and brought water while they searched for their owner. They located him and were told he didn't care about the dogs anymore and would not be back to get them. Repeated attempts to get him to act responsibly came to an end when they learned the owner had been jailed on felony charges. The police worked with the neighbors and after the legally required wait time for abandonment was confirmed, Doberman Rescue of Nevada was allowed to step in and take them. The neighbors were aware that Sophie's chances at the shelter would be grim due to her age. This lovely girl will be spayed after she goes out of heat and will be looking for a new home with people who deserve to have her. To sponsor this beautiful lady visit her page at http://doberman911.org/seniors/cases/nv_sophie.html.

You can learn more about Miss Sophie 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 life's of these older Dobermans, many of whom never knew love or care during their younger years.

If you have any questions about Miss Sophie or any of our other beautiful Seniors, please email us at seniors@doberman911.org. Thank you for your support!!


The Senior Medical Assistance Program

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:
