Can You Open Your Home and Heart to a Dachshund?

16 Jul

20110716-095648.jpg

For the remainder of Summer we’re focusing on building our foster parent group. Our success is based on that special person who can open their heart and home to foster a dachshund. If you haven’t fostered a dog you will certainly have many questions.

Fostering is not scary nor hard. Pet owners who foster our rescue dachshunds provide love, training, socialization and food. Fostering a dog may seem like a formidable task, but it is a very tangible way to make a difference. Everyone benefits: The foster volunteer gets to spend time with a special dog and the foster dog gets a second chance at becoming a cherished pet. The new owners get a dog that is better adapted to home life, and therefore has a better chance of remaining in the new home permanently.

Perhaps you are only are in a situation where you can not have a permanent commitment for many years, are elderly and are concerned what may happen to a dog if you need to move to a different living situation and can’t have a dog of your own or you may want to help unwanted dogs to save them from being euthanized or re-sold for back yard breeding. Fostering may provide the answer.

Many dogs end up in pounds through no fault of their own. Their owner may not be able to keep them any longer due to changed circumstances, they may have been lost and not located, or they may have simply been not wanted. Many dogs have had previous owners who did not take the time to properly train their dog and now have issues with the dog that they do not know how to correct or have time to.

Some of these dogs are happy and friendly and untouched by their experiences. Some become timid and insecure. Some are toilet trained, some are not. When you foster for us, we supply 24-hour support and if for any reason there is a problem with that dog not fitting in your household, we will give you complete backup. All vet bills and extra expenses are paid by us. It is up to you whether or not you want to cover the food costs. If not, we will provide the food for you.

After caring for the dog for a few days, fosterers will then advise us on the personality of the dog, the good points and any negative ones; and we can then advertise the dog on our website, on Petfinder, through our newsletters, in local newspapers, etc., and match the dog to the right adopter. We ask that our foster parents bring the dog to our events to give the dog exposure and to provide socialization opportunities. If you can not bring the dog, please contact an organizer to make arrangements to have the dog at our adoption events.

We do not have shelter capabilities, therefore we are limited to our rescue abilities to the amount of foster homes we have. The more available foster homes we have the more dachshunds we can save. We are constantly turning dogs away from rescue because we don’t have the availability to bring them in. We are all volunteers and have our own family, work and personal lives. We commit ourselves to this cause to help these unwanted dogs. We can not do it alone and require more foster homes and volunteers. We understand that there are more dogs out there that need help then we have room or time for, which is why we work on “Saving the world one wiener at a time.”

Fostering can be an incredibly rewarding experience – to see the look of trust and growing confidence in a dog that has been rescued from an unfortunate situation, and to watch it go to a person who will love and care for it. It is amazing to see the transformation a little love, patience and training can do. Fostering also allows you to have many loved dachshunds during your life time by providing them a temporary home to live in until they find their for ever home.

Foster homes must be able to provide a loving home, secure fencing, daily walks and some time each day spent interacting with your foster dachshund. If you do decide you would like to try fostering then a rescue representative will need to do a home check and you will need to complete an application. >> http://www.lvhddcr.com/fosterapp.php

We place a very high value on our foster parents, they make the wiener world a much better place.

Fosters Make The Doxie World Go Around

27 May

Foster parents are the ones who make the doxie world go around. Without caring and passionate foster parents how on earth would these cute and in need dogs ever get the homes that they so well deserve?  It takes a special person to open their home, arms, and heart to care for a dog in need. It’s these foster parents who care for the ill and injured dogs, give them love so that they can trust again, exercise, rehab, socialize, train, and pamper them all in preparation for their next chapter in life.  We have awesome foster parents at our rescue and wish to add to that group of special people. If you’re interested in changing the life of a doxie we would love to hear from you.  The start the application process visit this link to read about it  adoption application form

Currently we have an immediate need for a foster parent for Red. He’s a handsome boy.
