Lily & Bo Doberman Rescue

I love when I find shops that give back to charity. When I learned about Lily & Bo's commitment to donate to animal rescue, I knew I needed to share it! Carrie, the owner and creator at Lily & Bo tells us why she chose Doberman Rescue of Minnesota, and more about the charity.

Here is why I am passionate about this. Last year, we applied to adopt a foster dog. Because we had a cat, at that time there were no dobermans that were tolerant of cats! In the meantime, we ended up adopting a baby doberman puppy and became DRM volunteers. The staff and volunteers are amazing and beyond helpful. The foster parents are fantastic and the glue to this organization. To see so many animal lovers in one place is simply amazing! To know that 100% of your donation stays within the organization and helps so many rescue dobermans- it just makes you feel overwhelmed with happiness!

You can find Lily & Bo on Facebook, Shop, blog, Twitter, and Instagram. Keep reading to find out more about the rescue organization.

Doberman Rescue Minnesota is an all volunteer, non profit 501C, charitable
organization founded in 2000.

They are dedicated to finding the best possible homes for all Dobermans that come into
their adoption program. Be assured that the decisions and recommendations regarding
surrendering or adoption a Doberman are based primarily on what is in the best interest of
the dog and are guided by many years of experience with this special breed. They care
as much about the quality of life for all Dobermans in their program as they do their own dogs.

Dobermans in their program are never kenneled and live in private homes with foster families who 
evaluate the Doberman for temperament and behavior traits so they can make recommendations on 
the best type of home for their dogs. They have many dogs who are available and in need.
lily & bo is a proud volunteer for the Doberman Rescue Minnesota and very
