How can I help?

Dobermans - Mans Best Friends

We need all the support we can muster to enable us to care for the constant stream of unwanted Dobermanns. There are several ways you can help these needy dogs – please see below, and also view the other pages in this very important section of our website:

You can make a Difference for a Dobermann!

We are dedicated to the welfare of Dobermanns, concentrating resources in Northern England and Scotland – where there is little or no other provision for the breed at present. For each dog rescued, we re-home whenever an appropriate home becomes available. As a small organisation, we make the best use of our limited funding by restricting our geographical area – Friends of Northern Dobermanns Limited, or for ease ‘FOND’, is a non-profit making limited company run and supported entirely by unpaid volunteers.

Ways To Help (i): Make a Donation

Donations, however small, are always very welcome. These can be made by clicking on the Paypal ‘Donate’ button above. Alternatively, please donate by sending a cheque made payable to Friends of Northern Dobermanns Limited to Mrs Louise Greig, 7 Ashfield Road, Cults, Aberdeen, AB15 9NQ.

Ways To Help (ii): Adoption

If you think you could offer one of our dogs a permanent caring home home please look at our – Adoption & Rehoming – page today.

Ways To Help (iii): Kennel Sponsorship

This is a major expense for us – often, we have to maintain dogs awaiting re-homing in kennels. You can help with the costs by becoming a kennel sponsor. Please find out more on our – Kennel Sponsorship – page.

Ways To Help (iv): Become a FOND Friend

All Friendship Subscriptions are used solely for the welfare of our rescued dogs. We regularly keep Friends informed about how these funds are being used. We send Friends a newsletter by e-mail containing profiles of some the dogs we have helped and how they are faring. To join us – please complete this form(note that this link is a Microsoft Word Document **) and return it by post (address on the form).

Ways To Help (v): Give Some Time as a Volunteer

We are always looking to extend our network of volunteers – help is always welcome. You obviously need to be experienced with the breed, example tasks include the following:

  • Transporting Dogs
  • Carrying Out Home Checks
  • Fostering Dogs
  • Fund Raising

If you can help in any of these areas – please download a form here(note that this link is a Microsoft Word Document **) and return it by post or email to:

Remembering Rusty… you can make a Difference for a Dobermann in Need.

Rusty a Fond Dobe

A lovely dog who died far too young… as a result of the conditions Myasthenia Gravis and Megaesophagus.

Thank you to all those who enquired to offer him a home and to those who support us – without your caring we would not have been able to ensure this dog did not end his days without pain or fear.

‘You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there Long Before any of us.’ Robert Louis Stevenson.
