We appreciate you wanting to bring a dachshund into your home. In order for us to find the right home for our available dachshunds, we will need you to submit an adoption application. Our form is extensive to ensure the best possible fit.
We will review your application upon receipt. If we have any questions or concerns, we will contact you for clarity.
Usually, all prospective new families must travel and come to meet the dachshund in its current home/foster environment to ensure that the dachshund is where it feels the most comfortable and can be itself. We want to make sure the dachshund is subjected to as least stress as possible, that you see the "real" them and vice versa!
If the meet and greet visit is successful and we have a match, a 2 week trial will be arranged.
If the trial is successful the adoption will be finalised.
Once our dachshund moves on to their forever home, we like to stay in touch with our families to ensure that all is going well and everyone is getting acclimated to each other. We are happy to assist you with any advice, suggestions or information that you need to help settle and acclimate your new family member into your home to make the transition as comfortable and stress free as possible.
Our goal is to make the adoption process a rewarding one and a good experience for all involved. We like to think of our dachshunds and their adopters as "DRA Rescue Ambassadors" that will spread the word about their positive experience with adopting a rescue dog and help others realize that there are many wonderful dachshunds and to consider 'Adopt before Shop.'
