UNITED DOBERMAN RESCUE AND CANINE CASTAWAYS OF MINNESOTA

aka United Doberman Rescue and Canine Castaways of Minnesota

Buffalo, MN

Mission

To save all homeless Doberman, and animals in need, from death and abandonment, and provide breed education to the public. We believe that the need to rescue exists not only on a local basis but more broadly across the United States and the world. Our goal is to help all Dobermans, or those animals in desperate need locally in Minnesota and the 5 state area, but also in extended US geographies where local groups may not be able to help. We actively work with other rescues across the U.S. and world to help save the Doberman along with other breeds of canines, when other rescues are unable to help.

What we aim to solve

Decrease the number of homeless Dobermans who have been abandoned or found themselves without a home. Our goal it to further help Dobermans and other animals locally in Minnesota, and places that may be overburdened by helping other rescues. Networking and working in conjunction with other groups and shelters co-cohesively, will have the greatest impact on the homeless animals.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
