Wanting to start a Dobie Rescue

I am wanting to start a Rescue for Dobes in Southern Indiana. I am trying to get everything settled and determined before I just dive in! Does anyone have any advice, tips, ideas!

Thanks!

There is a special needs rescue that I follow on FB and she actually posted a note about this the other day. Figure I can share it with you.

That's a fairly huge subject.

Why not tell us a little about yourself, your dog experience, your rescue experience, prelim plans for this rescue, etc?

Then folks can better be able to give you suggestions.

I'd suggest talking to the rescue folks in your region, and also join DAN (Doberman Assistance Network) and get to know a lot of people who are active in and/or knowledgeable about rescue. This is a long process, you have to cultivate contacts all over the place - shelters, animal control, breeders, other rescues, etc. You have to have some sort of credentials that people will respect and feel secure and safe about - and you are going to want to look into becoming a 501c3 tax exempt organization. There's a lot to know and to think about - but as has been said - you will get more help from people once they get to know you better. You'd be amazed how many crackpots and trolls come on this forum...

Hey everyone I have taken many of your advice and now I am starting to get the ball rolling with making some steady money to get myself started. I am hoping to purchase I nice chunk of land here in the near future!
I would love if anyone would have some suggestions for a name. I am starting a donation and also I do woodworking so I have begun selling my pieces and all profits go to the land I will be buying! Does anyone have any good names I could name my shelter?
Thanks everyone!

Have you tried working with an established rescue yet? I volunteered for several animal shelters/rescues for years before I decided to open one of my own. If you are dead set on starting now, I would strongly suggest that you keep a close eye on your numbers and stick to them. I've seen a lot of new rescues especially fold because they take on too many animals and don't know how to say no. Anyway good luck.
