Dachshund Adoption Rescue & Education (DARE) - Florida


Dachshund Adoption Rescue and Education (DARE) is a no-kill, non-profit, 501(c)3 rescue group. As such DARE specializes in the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of dachshunds and dachshund-mixes regardless of age or health-related issues. As all of the DARE members are volunteers, 100% of every single penny donated to DARE is spent to further DARE's mission of the rescue, rehabiliation and re-homing of dachshunds. As a non-profit, 501(c)3 rescue, all donations to DARE are tax-deductible and DARE will provide you with a receipt for all donations to ensure you are able to take advantage of appropriate and applicable tax deductions related to your DARE donations.

DARE dogs come from shelters or owners who surrendered their dogs because of changed life circumstances like deaths, divorce, etc. Prior to adoption, all DARE dogs are spayed or neutered, brought up to date on shots and have had any other urgently needed medical procedures done, always costing significantly more than their adoption fee, which is why your financial support of DARE is so important.

EARN FREE DOG FOOD FOR DARE! SAVE PURINA DOG FOOD WEIGHT CIRCLES. We can redeem weight circles from most Purina Brand Dog Foods for checks to our vet or to purchase more Purina food. Take a minute to cut off the weight circles from your bags of Purina dog food and mail to us at 4495-304 Roosevelt Blvd., PMB 179, Jacksonville, FL 32210.

DARE currently has a large number of dachshunds that are heart worm positive and going through heart worm treatment. This is a very expensive vetting procedure and could easily be prevented with the use of a monthly heart worm preventative pill. PLEASE keep your pet on heart worm preventative, all dogs have the potential to contract heart worms, no matter how little time they spend in the yard. It only take one bite from one infected mosquito.

Won't you PLEASE help DARE pay for heartworm treatment for these dogs? They were pulled from death row at the shelter, where they would have been put to sleep because of the heart worms, had DARE not taken them into foster care. No amout is too small!! You can make a donation via our paypal link on our website or you can mail check or money order, made payable to DARE to: DARE 4495-304 Roosevelt Blvd. PMB 179 Jacksonville, FL 32210
