Thank you for your interest in adopting
a Dog through Las Vegas Doberman and Dachshund Rescue
Group. LVDDR has successfully placed several Dobermans and
Dachshunds. All Dobermans and Dachshunds placed through LVDDR have
received a full medical exam, been spayed or neutered, and have been
immunized. Additionally, each Dog receives a microchip that's
registered with the National Dog Registry.
LVDDR generally has many dogs
available at any given time. We have puppies available on rare
occasions. We suggest that if you wish to have a very young puppy
that you give it serious thought before adopting. A young puppy is
not for everyone. We often receive young Dogs from homes that did
not fully research the advisability of acquiring a puppy. If you
choose to buy a puppy we can provide you with names of reputable
breeders. Do not buy a puppy from a pet shop as you may be
supporting a puppy mill by doing so.
You have already taken the first step
in the adoption process by indicating your interest in a rescue dog.
We ask that you have patience throughout the adoption procedure. The
procedure for adopting a dog through LVDDR is as follows:
1. Read the information on this web
site to ensure that a Doberman or Dachshund is for you and to
help you prepare for a new dog.
2. Fill out an application.
3. A volunteer will contact you
and, by appointment, visit your home. First time applicants are
interviewed in their own homes to ensure that the adoptive
families understand the responsibilities of owning and caring
for a Doberman or Dachshund and the needs of a second-hand dog.
At LVDDR's option, if you have already adopted from us, and your
circumstances have not changed, this visit may not be necessary.
4. After the visit to your home,
if your application is approved, you will receive a telephone
call from an Adoption Coordinator who will match you with the
available dog that fit your circumstances.
5. We reserve the right to refuse
an applicant if, in our judgment, the home situation is not
compatible with the needs of a Doberman or Dachshund or if the
breed is not suitable for the applicant.
6. Arrangements will be made for
you to visit with the dog's selected as possibilities for you.
Applicants are under no obligation to accept a dog selected for
you. It may take some time to find the right dog for you. If you
feel that a dog shown to you is not right for you, simply tell
the Adoption Coordinator. We will do our best to continue the
search for a compatible dog. LVDDR does not, however, guarantee
a successful placement. If a dog has been selected for you and
you are unable to see it or cannot decide after seeing it, LVDDR
is under no obligation to hold the dog while you decide.
7. Adoption fees vary according to
the dogs age, sex, health and ear presentation. Older Dog's
adoption fees are $150. Dog's under a year that are cropped and
docked are $500. This donation goes to help defray the costs
incurred while the dog is in our care. Expenses normally
incurred include a full medical exam, medical treatment, spaying
and neutering, a full set of vaccinations, other medications
that may be required by the dog, boarding, food, and the
8. You will be required to complete
an adoption contract at the time of adoption.
9. You will be required to license
your dog, provide shelter, food, yearly vaccinations, and
medical care. Most importantly, you must intend to make the dog
you adopt a member of your family.
10. Shortly after the adoption, your
Adoption Coordinator will call you, and again a while later, to
assist with any problems you may be having in integrating the
dog into your household. Never hesitate to contact your Adoption
Coordinator with questions or problems. It is easier to address
such problems as they occur rather than at some later time. We
ask that you stay in touch with us and maintain your current
address with us in the event your dog is ever lost and tracked
11. If, for any reason, the adoption
is not satisfactory, LVDDR requires that the dog be returned to
LVDDR. The Dog must not be sold or given away. LVDRR retains
the right to reclaim any rescue dog that is neglected,
improperly cared for, or allowed to roam free.
Our non-profit organization is run
solely by volunteers. These volunteers give numerous hours to
Doberman and Dachshund Rescue in addition to their own work and
family duties. Their only reward is in knowing that they have helped
to provide warm and loving homes to Dobermans and Dachshunds in
need. Please have patience with these hard-working, caring
Filling out an application does not guarantee
a dog as not all homes are suitable for placement. Las Vegas
Doberman and Dachshund Rescue has the right to refuse any
application. We endeavor to make wise and permanent placements for
