Dachshund Rescue South Florida

Organization (us)weston, FL, United States Website
501 campaigns 34482 contributions received $1,169,235 raised Member since January 2013
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?

We try not to judge. We don't know what any one person or family has going on at any given time or what it is like to walk in their shoes. But for the life of us, we can't wrap our head around handing over our doxie to the shelter to be euthanized, ...
