I donate my services as care and nutrition consultant for their special needs dogs and have to say that 2nd Chance Dachshund Rescue clearly has the highest standards for feeding, health, care, and training of any rescue I have ever been involved with. Dogs are thoroughly vetted before they are adopted out, and no expenses are spared to give them what they need to heal and thrive, body and soul, even if it takes considerable time.
2nd Chance also goes to great lengths to match up the best possible homes for each of their dogs, greatly improving the odds for each one of not ever having to be re-homed again.
If you adopt from 2nd Chance Dachshund Rescue, not only will you get a dog that has been thoroughly evaluated and well cared for, but you also gain access to a wonderful support network to ensure you can continue to provide the best possible care.
2nd Chance is by far the most forward thinking animal rescue organization I've ever encountered. They are extremely dedicated to the dogs they rescue, finding every possible means to give these dogs better care and specialty treatment than most pet owners even are aware of! 2nd chance utilizes nutrition, holistic care and acupuncture for their dogs, as well as having lots of experience with veterinarians. I am always impressed at how despite their small size, they improve the lives of so many unwanted dachshunds! They are an incredible, selfless organization that's primary concern is the dogs!!
I've worked with dozens of rescues professionally and 2nd Chance Dachshund Rescue in San Diego is the best dachshund rescue on the west coast. They only take a few dogs at a time so that each gets the highest quality care and placement, and they devote as much time as needed to make sure adopters have the latest information on everything from vet care to food quality. Every penny donated goes directly to the dogs. Making a lifetime commitment to a dog from them means they are committed to you, as well.
