Mission: 1. Rescuing and socializing abandoned, neglected, abused, orphaned and/or surrendered dachshunds and dachshund mixes by providing temporary safe shelter and medical/dental treatments as needed. 2. Procuring temporary foster homes and permanent new homes for rescued dachshunds that will provide a safe and nurturing home environment. 3. Ensuring no dachshund shall be adopted for the purposes of breeding or scientific/medical experimentation. 4. Providing education to the public on the dachshund breed, puppy mills, and responsible pet guardianship including, but not limited to, humane animal care and spay/neuter practices. 5. Displaying courtesy, respect and fellowship toward all volunteers in appreciation of services and support rendered to dachshund rescue and to promoting enhanced teamwork among all rescuers.

medical care: paid for licensed veterinary care for dogs as needed, including exams, vaccinations, heartworm & fecal testing and treatment, spay and neutering, x-rays, dental cleaning/extractions, surgical services, physical therapy, acupuncture and related medical supplies and prescriptions.
I have been affiliated with DARE for a few years now. They are a great organization that helps any Dachshund. Full bred, half dachshund, it doesn't matter. They take in dogs regardless of their situation. They may be sick, old, etc. They take them all and help give them a new life because they believe that every dachshund deserves to live a life where they can be happy and loved. They are also very active in local adoption events as being seen is part of getting the dogs to their furever homes.
This is a great group of people with some of the kindest hearts. Please consider them as you plan your philanthropic donations. You will touch not only the lives of an organization and some wonderful dogs, but all of those families that have the experience of adopting these wonderful dachshunds!
