Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Furever Dachshund Rescue (FDR) opened in March, 2011. Although we are new, our members all have extensive animal and rescue experience and are excited about the many special dachshunds and people we will meet in the upcoming months and years.

Currently, we help dachshunds on the east coast; however, we are a national non-profit organization and are looking for volunteers in EVERY state!

About Our Rescue Group:

Furever Dachshund Rescue (FDR) is a non-profit organization comprised 100% of volunteers located throughout the United States working together to rescue Dachshunds in need of Furever Homes. We are dedicated to the following:

To rescue, rehabilitate and re-home abandoned, neglected and stray dachshunds.
To educated people to succeed as dachshund owners to provide a loving, nurturing home for these wonderful furbabies.
Teach awareness of pet overpopulation, importance of spaying/neutering, vaccinations, euthanasia, puppy mills and the consequences of purchasing as opposed to adopting from a rescue or shelter.
Additional education regarding breed-specific traits, medical issues, fostering, etc.
Respect fellow volunteers within FDR and in the rescue community. Show appreciation for all who volunteer their time and effort to promote teamwork and camaraderie. As a non-paid volunteer group, we know time is valuable and appreciate others who have big hearts and want to help dachshunds in need.

Our Adoption Process:

FDR has a 3 step application process to ensure that all of our dachshunds will only have happiness in their future. We will require a vet reference (if applicable), personal references and a home visit.

We do have a contract and adoption fees in place to cover veterinary expenses and shelter fees. Visit our webiste for more details.

Once your application has been approved, we have a wonderful volunteer transport system that we are creating to help your dachshund and your family unite! If you would like to be involved as a volunteer transporter, visit our website! It only takes a few hours on a saturday, mileage is tax-deductible and you will be making a huge difference in a dachshunds life.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
