Pet Friendly Doberman Assistance Rescue & Education (DAR&E)
Doberman Assistance Rescue & Education (DAR&E) Doberman Assistance Rescue & Education (DAR&E) is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization of Volunteers dedicated to serving the growing needs of unwanted and homeless Dobermans in Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia and eastern West Virginia areas.

DAR&E’s primary directives are to educate the public about Dobermans, assist owners in rehoming unwanted Dobermans, provide foster homes and veterinary care for rescued and relinquished Dobermans, and place Dobermans into loving homes through our adoption program. DAR&E provides support, consultation, and camaraderie to the adoptive families – not only through the adoption process but also throughout the lives of our Dobermans.

DAR&E’s expenses associated with these directives are funded primary through our own fundraising efforts and adoption fees. These funds are critical to DAR&E’s ability to remain financially self-reliant. We are always looking for relationships which allows DAR&E to continually reach their goals of being both financially independent and maintaining our adoption program.
