A Doberman Adoption Placement Team (ADAPT) is an all volunteer organization formed on 30 May 2010. ADAPT is an IRS approved nonprofit, charitable, tax-exempt (501(c3) corporation. We are a group of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to save the lives of homeless Doberman Pinschers in TX and, upon occasion, surrounding states. Most of our members reside in and around the Kingwood, North Houston areas of Southeast Texas.

Most of the Dobermans we rescue come from shelters or are turned over to us by owners who, for a variety of reasons, are no longer able or willing to care for them. Each Doberman is checked by a veterinarian, given vaccinations, tested for heartworm and intestinal worms, spayed or neutered, and MAY be treated for any illnesses or medical problems that are found. The dog is placed in a foster home for a period of time for evaluation, to assess its temperament, to provide house training and crate training, and to determine the best type of adoptive home for the particular dog.

ADAPT does not have a “SHELTER” so it is not possible to “come and look at the dogs”. Pending an approved application an appointment will be made for you to meet available dogs that you are interested in, and that would be appropriate in your home.

As wWe do not buy or sell dogs, nor do we offer any type of consignment services. We are a nonprofit organization the adoption fees and donations we receive are ONLY used to help cover our direct operating expenses (e.g. veterinary care, medicines, food, transport costs, etc.). We have jobs and families, so we are not always available to respond instantly to public inquiries. Please be patient when you contact us. We value your interest and will respond as soon as we can.

Our Mission

ADAPT’s focus is the humane rescue and safe re-homing of abused, abandoned or otherwise in need Dobermans…….. As a group dedicated to humane re-homing and rescue of Dobermans all dogs are temperament checked, current on shots, spayed/neutered and currently on HW prevention. ADAPT will provide education to the local community on benefits of spay/neuter, vetting and heartworm preventative as well as breed basics and introduction.
