How YOU can help

Volunteer State Doberman Rescue operates through generous donations from dog lovers in Tennessee and the surrounding areas. The process of pulling a dog from a shelter or an owner until it gets into a forever home can be costly. A standard intake vet appointment with spay/neuter runs between $150-$200. If a dog comes in with heartworms (very common 1-4) it can cost an additional $200+ for treatment.

A rescues income comes mainly from adoption fees, monthly and one-time donations, occasional grants and funds, and shoppers reward programs.


Please donate through Paypal at donate@vsdr.org.

Transportation Needs

As we pull dogs from shelters throughout Tennessee and surrounding states, dependable transporters are needed. Being a transporter is a great way to help without the commitment of fostering. Please fill out the transportation form and we will contact you when we have a dog needing transported in your area. You can also keep an eye on our FB page for transport needs.

Administration Needs

If you are more computer literate and want to help, there are remote computer tasks available. Data entry of incoming dogs, adoption processes and maintaining vet records are a few. Please fill out the Contact Us form and we’ll get in touch with you.
