Saving the Dog

If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that everyone could use a great companion. The sales of dogs from both breeders and shelters increased during the pandemic. The Florida Dachshund Rescue is searching for a few great volunteers to foster some extraordinary furry residents. These residents are rescued from shelters for their age or health.

A foster parent of a dog is somewhat similar to a child in a way. Prospective parents need to go onto their website and fill out a form with their interest. Then a representative from Florida Dachshund Rescue will contact you about visiting your home to see if you're an excellent fit for a dog. The Rescue accepts all forms of Dachshund, including mixed breeds. It takes a special heart to receive these dogs into your house and show them love again. Opening your heart and home is much more than giving these dogs food and water and a bed. It is about introducing love and comforting them. Loving them for who they are and not anything different. Owning a senior dog is just like owning a puppy, except you have to be willing to say goodbye. Senior dogs require just a pinch more love and care and are often harder to place. Many senior dogs come with health problems such as cataracts, diabetes, missing limbs, or memory issues. They are more work but to let them live out their final days is so worth it.

If you would like to donate a financial contribution, please visit the website

. The only money the Florida Dachshund Rescues receives is from the adoption of a dachshund. The organization does rely on other charities such as Amazon smiles and eBay auctions. If you feel led to adopt, you can visit the website and fill out an application; a representative will respond 24 hours of the application being received. If you can't adopt, you can foster and fill out an application, and a representative will respond within 24 hours.

Taking care of an animal proves to be both beneficial to a human and an animal. So if you are in the market for a dachshund, check out Florida Dachshund rescue for a fur baby. You won't regret it; in fact, you will be rewarded. They will thank you, and your heart will thank you. Rescues are some of the most loving dogs you will meet.
