  Welcome to United Doberman Rescue and Canine Castaways of Minnesota! 

Adopt, Surrender, Volunteer, Support, Foster, Donate

We are a  501C3 , non-profit animal rescue, based in Minnesota. We believe the need to rescue exists not only on a local basis, but more broadly across the United States and the world. With a passion for dogs and  over 40 years working with and loving the Doberman breed specifically, w e can truly say we know Dobermans! Let us help you if you have a Doberman/animal in need of rescue, or if you want to adopt, we can make recommendations for the best dog for your home!

United Doberman Rescue's and Canine Castaways of Minnesota mission is to help all homeless, abandoned  or neglected Dobermans, Doberman mixes and others in need of rescue, regardless of age or health condition, eliminate suffering to all Dobermans who have been victims of abuse and help them begin the process of healing and finding a permanent forever, loving home through our foster to adopt program.  We endeavor to provide breed education to the public and promote responsible pet ownership. All Dobermans that enter our program will be spayed or neutered, vetted and micro-chipped.

We are based in Minnesota and offer help to all Dobermans in Minnesota, the Upper Midwest, south to Texas and in many other locations across the US. We believe that the need to rescue exists not only in a local basis in Minnesota, but also more broadly across the United States.  The goal of United Doberman Rescue and Canine Castaways of Minnesota is to help all Dobermans in need of rescue, assist all Doberman owners who have to make difficult choices, and offer help to other rescues and shelters that have no room for Dobermans in danger of being homeless. Our operating principles is that the spirit of rescue embraces respect, trust, teamwork, honesty and collaboration to accomplish truly great things.​ 

Our adoptable rescued dogs live with foster families until they are adopted, learning basic manners of home life, while being nurtured, loved and cared for just like one of our own dogs. UDR rescue dogs also have the BONUS luxury of being boarded when fosters go on vacation, enjoying doggy daycare, playing with other dogs, and even attending formal  obedience  classes while in foster care! All important skills for rescue dogs who may have never experienced such things in their past life and helps get them socialized in a safe, formal setting.  

Bianca, forever loved! 

We actively work with other animal rescues across the U.S. and the world, to help save the purebred Doberman, Doberman mixes and other animals in need of rescue help. Please contact us if you would like to partner with us!

Fostering saves lives

->Go to our adoptable dogs page to see the dogs we need foster homes for right now!<-

Afraid of getting attached?

Consider the alternative....if no one helps they have no chance at life, those dogs in shelters will be euthanized as its a numbers game for them. I would rather cry watching a foster dog leave my home, filled with happiness then cry because no one stepped up to help and the dog died in a shelter, sad, alone and frightened.
