reserves the right to refuse adoption for any reason. Our adoption area is
limited to a three-hour drive from Raleigh, NC. The adopter's ability to
visit our dogs is mandatory prior to adoption being finalized. If you are too
far distant for adoption from us, the Doberman Pinscher Club of America
maintains a directory of approved rescuers across the nation on their website.

Your answers on this application will help us to make the best possible
adoption match between you and a Doberman in our care. The more we know, the
more confident we can be that your adoption will be successful. It is very
important that this application be completed fully and truthfully. Failure to
supply truthful information on the application will automatically result in
non-approval and, if discovered after placement, may result in revocation of the
adoption contract and result in DRNC retaking custody of the dog without
return of the applicant's adoption fee.
an application to DRNC does NOT commit you to an adoption. The application
only serves to help our staff best match the right dog with the right home.
We try very diligently to place our Dobermans into the best environment, one
that will fulfill the dog's needs as well as the adopters' desires for their new family member. Being completely honest about
your home environment helps ensure that we will make a successful placement,
one that turns into a "forever" home.
