Review for Dachshund Adoption Rescue And Education Inc, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been affiliated with DARE since 2007 and a member since 2010. DARE's open acceptance policy of taking in Dachshund and Dachshund Mix's who have been abandoned, abused or rescued from kill shelters amazes me. DARE has such a caring dedicated group of volunteers and members. Their attitude says it all....IT'S ABOUT THE DOGS! Whatever it takes, however much blood, sweat and tears goes into it - the supporters of DARE will make sure that the quality of life for their fosters is full of love, compassion and quality vet care. DARE screens all potential adoptive homes & does a thorough background check to make sure that the dog and the owner are a good match and even offers to accept the DARE dog back should the new owner ever need to surrender the dog due to life changes. The group of DARE supporters truly believe in what they are doing.

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

I have (to date) adopted 4 dogs from DARE and could not imagine my life without these wonderful fur-babies!! Being a foster mom has been so rewarding!! To know that sweet little fur babies that had been entrusted to me for care and to secure their fur-ever homes was the most important I have ever done...I put the potential adoptive families through "it" to make sure that the dogs and the families were a good match!

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

If there were any changes that I could make in the organization I would reform the communication flow.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?


Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?


Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I have learned so much and been welcomed into a whole new circle of friends.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I felt so rewarded after being a foster mom and adopting out the dogs that were entrusted to me.

Role:  Volunteer & I have been a volunteered and been a foster home for several dogs.
