We are a 100% volunteer run and 100% donation funded organization—no overhead, no fancy offices, no high paid execs, and no glossy commercials—just a bunch of people who love doxies enough to forgo sleep and probably retirement to make sure they find good homes. Every dollar helps and we make sure each and every single one of them goes as far as it possibly can... On average, the vetting of each DRSF Doxie we welcome to our family is over $1,000 (we have some seriously geeky number crunchers who need to get out more....). We are not backed by large corporations or grants, but by people just like you, who love doxies, and love an happy ending. Would you consider a tax deductible donation of any size to support us?

The call came, as it always does, on the spur of the moment....someone needing help and needing it right now. A kind person had found these puppies and couldn't keep them one second longer. If we didn't come that very moment, they were going to the ...

Trill was a black dog, at the shelter, with an injury, right before a hurricane. Not a favorable set of circumstance by any stretch of the imagination... His chances of being adopted were slim to none (leaving only one other option...) but President ...

You know a Rescue is big when the Pambulance is not big enough. Today, DRSF welcomed 14 dogs from Puerto Rico and the rescue was so big we needed a U-Haul van to do it. Most of them are in reasonable shape, but there is one beautiful little girl, ...

Our heads are still spinning after our 14 dog Day to welcome 14 rescues to our DRSF family this weekend. These dogs needed out of Puerto Rico and had no options but us and so we rolled the dice that our DRSF community would agree their lives were ...
