I've adopted two dachshunds from DARE. It has been a privilege to meet and get to know these dedicated volunteers. They take in the old and disabled and give them peaceful, loving homes for the remainder of their days. They manage to find wonderful homes for so many of the fortunate dachshunds that manage to find their way to DARE. They are thorough and diligent in their efforts to make sure these little dogs are going to good homes. The dogs are given dentals, surgeries and anything else necessary to bring them good health and make them ready for their new homes. I've donated $ numerous times and I know it is used wisely and with a great deal of thought.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the adoption process. Once, I did a "home visit" for them and met with a couple that had applied to adopt one of their dogs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I don't know of any changes I would make.

The DARE organization rescued a beagle/dachshund mix dog from a high kill shelter, got him to good health, then arranged for him to be brought all the way to Maryland for my family to adopt him. They are a wonderful network of caring and compassionate people dedicated to helping homeless furry children find their forever homes.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I used their website to find them and their dogs, I applied for a dog, went through their screening process, then was accepted and lucky enough to have them be able to arrange transport from Florida all the way to Maryland. Without them I wouldn't have my furry son, Hoagie.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would give them more resources to do what they do best. It is a truly exceptional organization.
