If your dog was purchased
from a breeder, contact them first. A responsible breeder will want to
help. The Dachshund and Doberman Rescue is a BREED SPECIFIC rescue. We can only
accept Dachshunds and Dobermans. We reserve the right to refuse accepting any dog into
the rescue program that may pose a liability to the rescue volunteers.
Contact Us Early:
Plan ahead if you "intend" to place a dog into the rescue program. We
may not be able to respond to your need immediately. The rescue
volunteers work full time jobs and it may take time to respond. Space is
limited and there may not always be room for the dog. Whenever possible
it may be best for the dog to stay with the owner until a new home is
found or a foster location becomes available. Don’t wait until the last
minute. It can be a difficult and emotional decision to relinquish a
pet. Make the arrangements with us in advance to prevent unnecessary
We will obtain detailed information about the dog when you contact
us. This information is needed for the Release Form that must be signed
by the owner when the dog is released. It is necessary that all
information is accurate. If a dog has problems, we must know about them.
It is also important for the new owners to be informed. Dogs with severe
medical or behavioral problems may not be accepted into the rescue, if
funds are not available at the time.
It is mandatory that all dogs entering rescue are current on
vaccinations. Other dogs will be exposed to yours in foster homes. If
you can not provide vaccination records we will coordinate getting the
dog vaccinated prior to entering rescue.
Obtain your dog’s records from your veterinarian. They will be turned
over to us when the dog is placed into rescue. The medical history of
the dog is important in placement. In some cases, arrangements can be
made to have the records released to the Rescue. This may take some
time, so be prepared. If no records are available, you may be required
to have the dog seen by a veterinarian prior to release. We work with
several veterinarian offices and may refer you to one. AKC, pedigree, or
other associated paperwork and documentation must be provided when the
dog is released into rescue.
All dogs adopted from Dachshund and Doberman Rescue will be spayed or neutered.
If your pet is not currently altered, consider having it done prior to
placing it into rescue. If the dog is placed into rescue unaltered, we
will require a fee to have the procedure done.
Transporting A Dog to the Rescue Location:
It is the owner’s responsibility to transport the dog to the rescue
location. Transporting the dog to the rescue location may take a few
days to co-ordinate. In special circumstances, we can arrange to pick up
the dog or arrange for a pick-up location.
Please honor appointment times for releasing or adopting a dog. Contact
us as soon as possible if your appointment must be changed.
