Living the Doxie Dream Rescue and Sanctuary purpose is to place homeless dachshunds into loving forever homes suited to each individual dog’s needs. We take special care to match the right home with the right dog, ensuring a lifetime of love for both the dog and the adopter. To ensure the best matches are made, we have a process that is effective in determining the best homes for our dogs. Our adoption process may seem time-consuming or unnecessarily complicated, but please know that we have the dogs’ best interests at heart. We strive to find the best homes possible for each of our dogs, as well as find the right dog for you and your lifestyle which is why each application is taken on its own merit.
Please understand that our organization is completely run by unpaid volunteers, who aside from having full-time employment and families to care for, dedicate their free time to help these dogs. If your references aren’t forthcoming, it will delay the process, since those must be reviewed before moving forward. The entire adoption process takes time; we are unwilling to sacrifice being thorough when the dog’s future is at stake. We thank you for your time and patience throughout our adoption process.
