Mission: Founded in 1984 by Bucks County, PA and New Jersey dachshund lovers, DRBC is a 501-C3 nonprofit supported completely by donations. Our all-volunteer organization works tirelessly to provide an experience for both the adopter and adoptee that helps guarantee a perfect match. Dachshund Rescue of Bucks County is located in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. DRBC’s goal is to save abandoned, owner turn-ins, neglected or stray Dachshunds. DRBC does not just place needy Dachshunds; we specialize in matches of the heart. All DRBC dogs with long-term medical issues are given life-long sanctuary as permanent members of one of our foster homes. Additionally, DRBC supports the long term sponsorship of senior dachshunds. DRBC prides itself as an organization on the level of medical care provided and in its role as a medical resource for the dachshund breed. We endeavor to obtain all Doxies in animal shelters thus avoiding euthanasia. We also aid Doxie owners in recovering lost or stolen pets. Our rescue program, which has been in existence over 20 years, serves the Dachshund Rescue needs of Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

Results: DRBC has helped over 5,000 dachshunds and their families over the past 35+years. We are proud to serve the breed we hold so dear.

In my case, I have found DRBC to be a very caring organization. They have integrity and have nobly dedicated themselves to saving and extending the lives of dachshunds everywhere. I feel very lucky to know them. I am a dachshund lover and "owner", and will only settle for the absolute finest treatment of these animals. DRBC helps dachshunds continue to bring tremendous joy into our lives. They have been really awesome and I wish them the best going forward!

My husband and I went through 3 rescues before DRBC…. this rescue is beyond compare. I have seen the incredible work that they do for the dogs- they travel miles to rescue dogs , spend sleepless night to provide them with medical attention and all the care they need .
( tune in to their FB posts to see for yourselves!)

With us ---They asked what we were looking for and they listened.
They were able to assess the dog that was right for us.
It is a process and there is waiting, but this rescue has seen every kind on both fences - adoptee and adopter. You have to trust that they know and they did deliver that promise. We could have not had a more beautiful little boy.

He came from a highly tense situation; Cindie, Joanne and the rest of the DRBC team was able to restore normalcy in his life. He came to us with this incredible spirit of glee. He is an absolute joy!


Our little one came home with his complete medical , premium food ( to last the apocalypse-haha) , vitamins, supplements, heartworm and flea and tick preventative packets
( to last 6 months ) ...everything!!!

Even after you have passed through the process, you come home knowing DRBC is there for you when you need them.…like a family ...Now that -- is a rescue.

I am so proud to be a volunteer for Doxie Rescue of Bucks County & NJ. This allows me to understand how DRBC works. Unfortunately many special needs dogs end up with no place to call home and very uncertain futures. Dogs that can have significant medical needs. I get to see what happens first hand - what the rescue does - and that is to remove whatever barriers there might be to getting those dogs to a safe place and their new future. Absolutely no pausing - just problem solving for transport, needed funds, accommodating foster homes - whatever is needed and whenever it is needed. And not just dogs local to the rescue. This is the life of DRBC 24/7. They realize that because of the special issues each of these dogs that come in have, regardless of age, they could require permanent sanctuary in a home within the rescue. Meaning all costs, medical, food and more, covered for the time that dog is a resident, which is often the rest of their life. I personally have one such dog. Thomas was thrown from the window of a moving car and is subsequently paralyzed in his rear limbs. He was taken to a local shelter where his future looked grim. But luckily DRBC found out about Thomas' predicament and made him a part of the family. Another bonded pair, Max and Harley, also found their way to the rescue. Max has a life long autoimmune disease that nearly ended his life (who now is doing well) and Harley suffered from IVDD and required surgery, leaving him with lingering neurologic deficits. Two more life long residents. And there are so many more dogs. Two more stories that make me so proud are dogs that developed life threatening health issues that left their families, who desperately loved them, unable to provide appropriate care so opted relinquishment. One of the dogs was a therapy dog for a veteran with PTSD. In those instances DRBC brought the dogs in and cared for and covered all costs to bring the dog's back to health. At which time the dogs were reunited with their ecstatic and grateful families. And I could go on. What I want to pause and add is these dogs are given the best medical care and whatever is needed. I know this because I am a veterinarian. Thanks to Doxie Rescue of Bucks County & NJ so many special need dogs have a life. They make sure that every dog has a safe and loving place to go.

I have found myself in a very painful, unexpected and unfortunate circumstance of needing to re-home one of my four dogs. My dog Kensie suffers from anxiety and redirected aggression to other dogs and has severely injured one dog and moderately injured another. She and I work with a veterinary behaviorist and experienced dog trainer and she is on medications and is never left unsupervised with the others. Suffice it to say that just managing everything day-to-day is difficult for us all and is taking a toll on her. I love her deeply and have realized that she isn't having the quality of life that she deserves which could be possible in a single-dog home. I never thought I'd be in this position and struggled to find a path forward to re-home a special needs dog, That's when I reached out to DRBC. It's like the weight of the world has been lifted from my shoulders. They have taken so much time to assure me that with their years of experience this can be done in a way that will provide her a happy future. They are so sensitive to my emotions, feeling s and needs - and there is definitely no judgement. They take care of everything but allow me to be involved to the extent I'm comfortable. I've been able to witness first hand how they take dogs that likely wouldn't get a chance anywhere else, and make them a part of the DRBC family, and find their forever homes. And in a time of need for me - they've offered that special gift to my love, Kensie. This is definitely who you want to experience either surrendering or adopting a family member with - they are very simply the best.

Doxie Rescue of Bucks County & NJ is in a league of their own. They provide outstanding support and community education which is valuable for the pets and their owners. But this pales in comparison to the unbelievable LIFESAVING medical care the Medical team has in place to address the needs of lucky souls who are rescued, rehabilitated, and readied for adoption by DRBC. Their standard of care is the best of the best and their love, support and commitment to continued education for themselves and the community they serve is commendable. They are an asset to the community they serve and angels to the Doxies in their care.

We have been friends with the Doxie Rescue of Bucks County & NJ for about 5 years now. They have always been very helpful with our 2 dachshunds even though we did not get them from the rescue. When ever I have a concern about them, they are always there to help. So,we decided to try and help them out by fostering a dachshund named Griffin. We brought him home and he was very sweet, a little scared and confused. It felt very rewarding helping to prepare a dog for his new family. By about day three I started thinking I was in trouble because I fell in love with the dog. I tried to keep telling myself you need to give him back so you can help more dachshunds in need. You adopt him your only helping one. Well I lost the battle, I was not strong enough to give him back. We officially adopted Griffin in August, so we helped one . He is great addition to our family and we love him. When I was fostering Griffin people would say he looks like a keeper. Well my response was they are all keepers, they all deserve a loving home. The Doxie Rescue of Bucks County & NJ is a place where these dogs find there loving home. Filled with people taking in dogs who came from bad situations, abusive homes and owners who passed away and medical issues. These dachshund were lucky to find the rescue because they will now,only know love. Thank You to the rescue for all the dogs you save everyday

When my husband and I first got our dog Odie who is a dachshund from a pet store, we knew nothing about the breed, just that he was adorable. I went online and did a lot of research and found the Doxie Rescue of Bucks County & NJ and saw that they are only a mile away from us. I went on there web page and started following them on face book.They have lots of medical information on there page and learned that 1 out of 4 doxies get IVDD. I learned the signs and what to do if Odie starts showing symptoms. I watched a video on how to properly pick up a dachshund, since you need to be careful of their backs. There is information about proper nutrition etc... When I was on there face book page I saw that they were going to be at local pet fair, we went to the pet fair with Odie to go and talk to them. They were super friendly and gave us a lot of information about dachshunds. They gave us there phone number and told us to call them immediately if Odie ever showed signs of IVDD or have any other concerns. Even though Odie is not one of their rescue dogs they care about him just as much as if he was. Which I think is an important part of a rescue too. Because if you know how to properly take care of your dachshund, know who to call if you have a problem and you know you are not alone. It can help prevent dogs ending up in shelters and rescues. We Love the Doxie Rescue of Bucks County & NJ and are very thankful for all they do for dachshunds in need our community. THANK YOU

This rescue organization is unlike any other -- from the kind and caring relinquishment team that help the families and dogs on their way to us, to the talented medical team that examines each and every dog when they arrive. If you've ever seen the live streaming of the intake process you will see they all get the 'royal treatment' when they come through the door.
DRBC has many talented volunteers who provide provide medical, dental, nutrition and behavioral support. Adopters and foster families have access to a tremendous amount of information anytime they need it. And, we can't forget about the wonderful foster families who care for our fur babies while we seek out the best adoptive home for them. Our foster homes provide lots of love and security for the dogs during what is a very scary time in their little lives.
-- Great group of individuals, commmitted to doing the very best for the dogs.

Doxie Rescue of Bucks County had a crucial role in helping me save my dog's life when his legs stopped working. They know this breed the best and were able to help guide me to the best neurologist.

I just lost my Dachshund this past April and I knew that another Dachshund was in my future. I tried several other rescue sites but I always had no luck. A friend told me about DRBC. I submitted an application. I couldn't believe how fast and professional things moved! A volunteer contacted me and we were set up for a meet and greet to see the puppies. My husband and I were introduced to Thor , or should I say, Thor introduced himself!!! It was love at first sight and we knew he was coming home with us. We definitely hit the jackpot!!! Thor is a loving and affectionate bundle of joy. He is loved by all that meet him. My relationship with DRBC didn't end that day. If we have any questions they assure us to call. Thor has filled a void that I didn't think could be possible. We could not be happier to have found this organization. AnnuaIly they have lots of events for the doxies and their proud parents...Soooo much fun!! I would like to thank all the volunteers that donate their time, love and professionalism... THANKS AGAIN TO DRBC
SINCERELY,
Mike,Kim and Thor

LIFE SAVERS - literally.

We adopted our lovable doxie Nash back in February. DRBC said that he had a nasal fistula that needed tending to so they took care of ALL the expenses and boarded him until we were able to bring him home which was March 30, 2019 - amazing!

Fast forward to July 2nd - we took Nash to the vet because something wasn't right, turns out he needed emergency surgery so we rushed him to the hospital. After spending 3 days in the hospital we were at a loss of how to proceed as the hospital kept saying they needed to do more tests that he may have cancer, that he had a seizure, he has pancreatitis etc. We didn't have insurance and honestly, we weren't' sure we could afford many more days of hospitalization. We called Cindie at DRBC for advice, we briefed her on the particulars. We also sent her all his paperwork and test results from the hospital. She told us exactly what to ask and advised us to bring him home, that it sounded like he would be ok. She ended up calling us back and offering to take him back and would monitor him as only she/DRBC can do. We left him with Cindie for a week and everyday got updates about his health and the progress he was making!! We picked him up a week later and he is a new dog. DRBC made this possible, this isn't just a rescue you adopt your pup from and never hear from them again, they TRULY CARE!

The Doxie Rescue of Bucks County has a vested interest in each and every dog that they take in. We 100% know that if we need advice or want them to look at Nash again, they will, hands down. We can't recommend them enough, we feel so lucky and BEYOND grateful that we had Cindie and everyone at DRBC available to nurse Nash back to health. If you're in the market for a doxie take a look at DRBC they an incredible organization and we are forever indebted to them!

We got involved with Doxie Rescue almost 5 years ago when we adopted 2 rescue dachshunds from this organization. We adopted our two dachshunds 2 weeks apart and have been involved with DRBC ever since in supporting their fund raising events as well as cash donations. The organization leaders work tirelessly to ensure each of their intakes gets a well deserved home and medical care if needed. After seeing how the organization and volunteers work in saving dachshunds, with every dollar they take in going to the care of the animals, I cannot think of a better nonprofit for us to support.

I have such great respect and admiration for this organization. The volunteers work tirelessly to deliver the medical care, emotional support, and love for each and every dachshund that they welcome into their rescue. It is a well oiled machine from rescue, foster homes, adoptions, and fund raising. It’s a win-win-win for every adoption. The dog, it’s new family, and the rescue all benefit. The dogs that are evaluated as unadoptable (whether due to age or special needs) also are well taken care of and placed in the GrandPaws Prigram where they will have a home for the rest of their lives.
As a donor and client served I applaud the rescue’s efforts and commend it for a job well done. Hopefully, this organization will be in existence for many years to come to keep up their good work.

DRBC is composed of such a wonderful and caring network of volunteers who do truly remarkable things for dachshunds in need. We were drawn to the Grandpaws program, which provides sanctuary to older dachshunds. It has been so rewarding to care for and love an older Doxie, especially to make their final years happy ones.

I have long been aware of the wonderful work performed by the DRBC to rescue, protect, care for, and rehome dogs who have, for whatever reason, lost their homes. Recently, however, I have started to truly appreciate the incredible dedication of the staff and volunteers who have opened their hearts and homes to these dogs in need. They work tirelessly, often traveling many miles or working into the wee hours in support of this cause.
Doxie Rescue is a true five-star organization run by earth angels. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking to foster or adopt one or more dachshunds of their own.

I have the opportunity to be both a volunteer and a client of DRBC. I started out by fostering the dogs turned in, and ended up adopting one as well! The process was so rewarding. To view the impact that their tireless efforts have on these dog, one could simply look at the dogs and their new home and lives. The medical care that these pups receive is superior. When they come in, they are soothed with a warm bath and checked over thoroughly. Blood work and testing, and sometimes medical care follows that. Then they go to a foster family where they are given love...and in some cases it’s the first time that they are receiving that. The pups are monitored to see how they are doing and what their personalities are like. And only then, when they are healthy and ready to move on, are they permitted to be shown at meet and greets with perspective adopters. It has been a privilege and so humbling to be a part of such a great group. These people are selfless and have only the dogs’ best interest at heart. I wish everyone could experience the gift of being a foster...especially with a group that cares so very much for these dogs.

Dachshund Rescue South Florida tips their hats to our friends at Doxie Rescue Bucks County for tireless advocacy for all the Wiener Dogs! For more years than we can count, we have marveled at the number of dogs that they welcome to their care, healing them in body and spirit, and placing them through a thorough process to ensure that these sweet souls will never want for anything ever again. In case that is not enough, they also work to educate the public on topics to help them be a savvy pet parent including IVDD, vaccines, nutrition and spay/neuter. We could not ask for a better or more experienced team to fight along with every day to ensure the health and safety of all dogs long and low!

I became a member of this organization by chance, searching for a small dog fostering rescue.
I'm so glad it happened, because not only did it allow us to foster 5 wonderful dogs to their adoptive homes, but one of those became a member of our family through our own adoption.
Everyone who runs this organization cares for the dogs first, and everything else second. As a fully volunteer and foster based group, you can't ask for a better environment for a dog who needs recovery, emotionally or physically, and the best path to it's right home.

I absolutely LOVE what this group does for the doxies out there that have found themselves in harms way. From the foster parents to the staff the care and love that they give for all they take in shows when you call and visit. I have known this group for a long time and watched them grow into the successful organization they are today-we have adopted 2 of our last pups from DRBC and the concern for not only the new family but also the pups goes above and beyond love. Be assured that your new family member will be the right one for you! Would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking to be a rescue family to give them a call and set up your appointment.

I met the people from DRBC several years ago when I decided to adopt a dachshund. We had previous adopted other dogs but meeting the people at this agency was different. They went the extra mile to talk to you to see how your family dynamic runs and how a dog would fit in order to have you meet the right dogs that would become your new family member. My Sammy is such a great little guy I couldn't of asked for a better match. And since than we also adoptd our baby girl coco. It's not a cookie cutter adoption agency where it's here which dog do you want from the back of the car. And in the long run when there fosters or grand paws are adopted they have a forever home.

2 yrs ago I started the search for a dachshund. I found Doxie Rescue of Bucks online and saw a few dogs I was interested in, so I called. From that very first call I knew that this was a loving and kind group of people who really loved this breed and wanted only the best for their rescues. After the initial interview a search for the perfect match was started and then it was time for meet and greet. As we interacted with Badger the rescue and me and my husband both knew this was a great match. A few weeks later Badger came to live with us. The rescue was there day and night to answer questions and give advice as dog and owner agjusted to each other . They encouraged us as we got to know our dog and let us know there would be an adjustment period for both of us. Now 2 years later we are completely bonded as a family. The rescue has been there every step of the way with support and knowledge about the little quirks that make this breed so much fun and oh so interesting! I love my little doxie and I'm so thankful for all the time the rescue took to match us and help us through the process of getting to know each other.

Another friend of mine told me about two dachshunds, one 3, one 11, who had been left at a vet's kennel for four months. Cindie Kura facilitated the adoption and then held my hand through the first rough winter of ownership. Subsequently she babysat them for me, and even went with me to the vet to have the older one put down at age 14. Without DRBC and her, I would never have been able to manage these two standard dachshunds, a breed previously unknown to me in a lifetime of dog connections.

I would not recommend this rescue AT ALL. When a friend surrendered their dog here, the rescue marketed the dog with a new name, a sob story about the horrible life that it came from, and a plea for help. The sob story was so far from the truth. I've watched them change the dog's name a couple of times in social media posts to re-package it for adoption. The rescue was misleading with its description of the dog to get support, donors, business, who knows? It's scary that a potential pet owner is going to make a decision about pet ownership without the truth about the dog and the situation. This rescue takes advantage of the emotional appeal of its industry.

In this picture is Patch, contentedly sitting on my 6 year old's lap. He is a Dachschund Rescue of Bucks County & NJ foster from the recent hoarding situation. We found & rescued him from a busy road in Mt Laurel NJ on May 8th 2017; he had escaped from his foster home. We were approved to foster him until we could adopt, after he received all DRBC required medical care. He was picked up from our home on May 10th where he was happy and felt safe, since one of his siblings bit a 2 year old in another foster home. We were told he would be returned to us in 2-3 weeks after receiving his rabies shot, dental, and neuter. We did not know that we would never see him again. I reached out several times, including offering to pay for all of Patch's medical care on top of his $680 adoption fee. Finally, on July 5th, I was told that he would not be returned to us since the hoarding doxies will all be placed in homes without children due to nipping concerns. Patch never nipped or showed any aggression while he was with us. We are completely devastated and wanted to share our story.

I tried to share my story on their Facebook page and the post disappeared- and I am unable to post anything now.

UPDATE1: on the DRBC Facebook page, I have observed that at least two of the hoarding doxies were in foster homes that seem to have children. When I questioned one of them I was blocked.

UPDATE2: Patch's name was changed to Stanley and he was adopted by another family. I am relieved to hear that he is ok and being loved- but completely disgusted by our experience with this organization. See link below.

I have adopted three dachshunds from Doxie Rescue of Bucks. All three were very hard to place dogs but DRBC never turned them away. My little one came to the rescue from NYC Animal Contol completely paralyzed in her back legs due to IVDD. DRBC pulled her and got her the medical treatment and rehab that she needed to be able to walk again. After meeting the president and other volunteers, I was so impressed with their love of these little ones that my family started volunteering and fostering. Their compassion for all the dogs no matter what their condition is exceptional. They work day and night to get dogs out of horrendous conditions and shows these dogs that there are humans out there with love and compassion. I can not think of a better organization to work with.

The Doxie Rescue of Bucks County and NJ is an amazing rescue. From the President /founder to the volunteers. Going above and beyond to not just help dachshund and dachshund mixes but also their humans. DRBC has stepped up to help many animals, but what makes them most unique is their Grandpaws program. This program gives sanctuary to senior, medically needy, and dogs with behavioral issues. Not many rescues have a program like this. DRBC covers all costs for the Grandpaw pups until they pass away. Each one is put in an appropriate foster home to which suits their needs. Here is were they enjoy the rest of their days. DRBC never turns any case away and will do whatever it takes to help out. Such an amazing rescue and volunteers who give so much. Surely one of the best rescues I know of full of passion and affection. You become family when you volunteer or adopt from DRBC!

Rescue groups have a tendency to get "uppity" so to speak about who can have their dogs and they are can be extremely cruel to the people in the public and the organization itself as they see themselves as above it all. That is not the case with DRBC they care just as much for their members, fosters, and adopters, as they do for their dogs. They recognize that the success of the organization is dependent on the people and they do their best to make the people as happy as the dogs are. They obviously also do everything they possibly can to provide their dogs with a happy healthy fresh start on life by providing them training, medical care, loving safe homes, and anything else they could need.

I am a volunteer with Doxie Rescue of Bucks County & NJ. They are by far the most dedicated volunteer group I have ever worked with. They always go above and beyond to help dogs in need, and will go out of their way to serve any in need. I would absolutely rate them 5 stars!

My 1st foster 6 years ago I adopted adopted. My Jack was in a kill shelter in Virginia and DRBC got him out of that terrifying situation. Jack was only 2 years old at the time. He came home and met his brothers Irvy a chunky mini wheaton wired hair and Shakes a Bassethound/American Eskimo. Many other fosters came after Jack, and DRBC found them their forever homes. DRBC is a great organization and I feel fortunate to be part of DRBC.

We adopted our sweet puppy Aslan from DRBC. He is a wonderful boy we are very lucky to add to our family.

Absolutely honored to be welcomed into the DRBC family with my new addition, Mulligan. This group of volunteers is very responsive, attentive, and will make sure that all dachshunds get matched with the perfect person. I walked into my meet and greet not sure what to expect and left that day completely in love with my bundle of joy. I couldn't believe the story of abuse this cutie had gone through and it was extraordinary how well behaved and affectionate he was. This could only have been achieved through a group that truly believes in their cause and works tirelessly to make miracles and second chances happen. I can't express enough how grateful I am for the journey im taking with my little boy.

Thanks to DRBC we welcomed Vinny to our home 3 years ago. They were always there for friendly guidance & support. The care they give to doxies in need is outstanding. I've enjoyed supporting them in any way I can since they help so manywho are need & are neglected. Thanks DRBC for all you do!!!

The willingness to drop everything and rescue a pup in need is extraordinary. These volunteers go way above and beyond-spending many an over-night racing to emergency vetting, coordinating foster homes and being a rock on which foster parents can lean.

DRBC saves every dog they are asked to save. The officers and volunteers dedicate all of their time to saving lives. They are the most knowledgeable about the breed. They are the best rescue I've ever worked with.

I first saw this rescue in a local holiday parade. A few months later, I contacted them to become a foster parent. Now, I do volunteer work for them! They are a wonderful organization and I support them however I can. I truly believe in their cause. I now am the proud mom of two wonderful Doxies - Sam and Minnie. When no one else wanted them, I took them in. They have made my life complete. If not for this organization, so many dogs would be put down, mistreated and never know love. Moreover, these dogs give unconditional love (more than I can say for my own daughter). The President of this organization works tirelessly 24 hours a day for these dogs. She is truly a hero!

Our hearts broke when a house fire took 2 of our beloved doxies and displaced 5 more. We contacted many rescues, but only DRBC was wiling to help us through the crisis. They moved quickly and professionally to get our dogs to safety. Thank you DRBC for turning my tears of sadness to tears of joy.

What a phenomenal group. I assist with some of the veterinary needs for the group and have always been impressed with their kind hearts and responsive nature. No dachshund goes untreated and no animal is placed until healthy. Kind, compassionate and responsible are but a few of the words I would use to describe the actions of the DRBC Team. Donate or adopt with confidence!

I met the people at DRBC several years ago at an event and have followed them ever since. They are friendly, professional and make we wish I had a dachshund. They are a credit to rescue and always have the dogs best interest at heart.

What a phenomenal organization. I have had the opportunity to adopt from this group and was so impressed with the care they put into each dog and the process they use to place these precious little ones. We met in a home environment, not at a truck stop or on the side of a road, and got to meet the dogs and learn about the breed. We knew that little Charlie was the one for us and we are grateful to DRBC for helping him find us. Best wishes for future successes DRBC!

After having been a regular donor for over a year, observing this organization from the outside, I decided about 7 months ago to get more involved. I began fostering a doxie, and shortly after that I joined the volunteer staff. DRBC trains and supports a large network of foster families and sanctuary homes, provides for all needed medical care and rehabilitation, and works tirelessly to find the perfect match between dogs and adopters. They contribute an unbelievable amount of personal time and effort to helping these dogs, many of whom would otherwise die alone, unloved, and in pain. It is a pleasure to work with such a knowledgeable and dedicated group of people.

I have been a volunteer for DRBC for 1.5 years and very proud to be part of this organization. I have never met such a group of dedicated, hard working people. This includes the President, Vice President, Medical Director and each and every volunteer. DRBC NEVER SAYS NO to a doxie in need. No matter what time of day or night, someone is there to help.DRBC is also available to our adopters 24/7 who may have questions or need help. The foster program consists of trained volunteers who care for each doxie and give them a loving home before adoption. DRBC is very worthy of this award for great nonprofits. Thank you!

Dachshund Rescue of Bucks County is an amazing rescue organization. They have saved some of the worst cases of abandoned Dachshunds and helped turn them into thriving dogs. I will forever be a supporter of this organization.

Our family just adopted two doxies from DRBC. We were very please with the entire process. We had been in touch with other dachshund groups near us and were surprised that many required payment upfront and then would have us pick up our dog at the mall; not DRBC. We were please to be welcomed to a home environment where we met the dogs and made sure that we had the right fit before adopting. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and supportive and the dogs were loving and healthy! We are thrilled to be a new part of the DRBC family.

I was perusing Facebook one day and came across a Petfinder link for a mini Dachau (George). I fell in love, and so did my fiance. So I filled out the online form, paid the $25 adoption form fee, and then....I got my call. An hour later we had a in-home dachshund visit. So we packed up our dachshund, Kenny, and went to meet George. Sadly, George was not the dog for us but the entire time we were at the Doxie Rescue HQ, I just couldn't stop playing with Toby, he was so friendly and he just felt right to us. So we took Toby for a walk with Kenny......and then we took Toby home. He was the Yin to Kenny's Yang. Sadly after a few months, Toby was jumping around and injured himself. I immediately called Cindie (in tears!) and she got us all fixed up with a vet (Dr. Karen Collins), got us a cage for his rest, guided us through his treatment and were there 24/7 for us. As of today, Toby is not only his old lovable happy energetic self, he's even more healthy.

I really cannot stress that any dog I get in the future will come from these angels. God Bless.

I found DRBC on FaceBook and originally got involved after a request for foster families was made. I was impressed by the training and all of the support the organization supplied. I could not believe how little I had to spend. My job really was to love and learn about my foster doxie! When it came time to adopt, the team involved me and listened; they really care. I fostered 3 doxies for the group and had to stop when my job relocated me to the other side of the country, but I would highly recommend DRBC to anyone thinking of fostering or working with them. They are just fantastic!

I started volunteering with DRBC a year ago when I became a foster family. I was interested because I wanted to help, but just didn't know how. I have since fostered 9 Dachshunds and have made such a great impact on their way to their forever homes. DRBC is a well established rescue group with over 30 years dedicated to saving dachshunds. I get great support from all those involved, and have even taken on more responsibility to recruit more volunteers. I love what we do!

Our family recently adopted from DRBC. What a great experience! We had looked around at several other rescues and were amazed at the difference with DRBC. It was a completely professional experience from start to finish. We have met the doxie of our dreams and have joined the DRBC family.

I am continually impressed by the work this group performs. I stop by from time to time and am proud to contribute. Most recently I was there when a dachshund that had received chemical burns was brought in; it was heartbreaking. The group moved to help without hesitation and helped this senior doxie with veterinary care and a loving and supportive medical home. Incredible.

DRBC is one of the best rescues I have encountered. I have worked in rescue for a long time and DRBC has the compassion, caring and integrity that I wish all rescues had. They genuinely care about their rescues and work diligently with them to place them in the right forever homes for them. They keep in contact with their rescues after placing them in their forever homes too and this is something not all rescues do. They are a top notch rescue and dedicate themselves to doing the best for the animals they rescue. The program they have for adoption is one of the best I've seen or heard about.

I own a doxie and had some questions about the breed. This group went above and beyond by helping me out. They gave me all the information I needed but, they also made sure I had everything I needed to take care of a special needs dog. They are very knowledgeable and do an awesome job getting these guys the homes they should have so they can live a happy and healthy life. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to own a Doxie or have questions about the breed as they are here to help not harm.

So the true story about dexter is he was taken in & left in a home he was taken care of went on family vacations dressed up 4 Halloween received Christmas gifts but unfortunately he was a very needy pup & needed full attention there were already 2 dogs that were rescued for 2 years dexter was worked with & tried to be socialized with the other animals in the house unfortunately over the past week b4 he was relincwished to this so called rescue he had become very aggressive & started fights with both dogs including 1 dog who's 15 and has epelepsy so in the best interest of all the animals & humans in the house we made a consous decision to relocate dexter to a home were he could b an only child it was unfair to dexter & the other animals & the fights began to escalate & dexter was becoming more aggressive so for all the animals safety & humans the decision was made to try & find him a more auotable home where he could spend the remaining years of his life being someone's everything. It was with a heavy heart he was sent 2 the rescue. When he arrived the rescue was informed he had been in a dog fight with 1 of the other dogs in the house & for everyone's safety it would b best if he not stay in the home it was also a fear that 1 of the dogs could b severely hurt or killed & no one wanted that so there r plenty of vet references personal reference & tons of the true dexter enjoying a very happy healthy life unfortunately for some reason these horrible misinformation is being put up & completely inaccurate I'm really not sure y a rescue would try to discredit a persons character when there r plenty of records to prove otherwise I pray dexter finds a loving family preferably without children or other pets as he's an awesome dog with a lot of love but doesn't want 2 share his furrever owners Good luck & we love & have always loved u dexter

DRBC is by far one of the best dachshund rescues with which to align yourself. They have been helping us to find our lost dachshund Rudy www.facebook.com/bringrudyhome for more than a year. They have dedicated time and material support to Rudy's rescue. Cindie Kura is the absolute best! She has given a great deal of her personal time to efforts to help us find our dachshund. Never fear; whether you are surrendering or adopting...this is a rescue that you want to contact.

This rescue group is the absolute best! Since our dachshund Rudy went missing, they have provided us with a tremendous amount of advice, help and support in many different forms. They continue to help us watch for our Rudy. Any near matches that are surrendered to them or to others are immediately reviewed by them and us as possibilities for Rudy. www.facebook.com/bringrudyhome.
Thank you Doxie Rescue of Bucks County and NJ. Your love for dachshunds and for their owners that love them will always be appreciated. We are forever in debt to you for your many efforts, kindnesses and most of all for your love of dachshunds in general and Rudy in particular.

I would deal with these folks without a doubt! And when our Rudy gets home, we definitely owe them a big debt of gratitude.
