Volunteering With FDR

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Furever Dachshund Rescue! FDR is run bebecompletely by volunteers. These volunteers are located all across the United States.

We all have at least one thing in common: We love dachshunds and we want to stop the terrible things that happen to them. We are dedicated to helping as many as we can because each one is special and unique.

If you have this one thing in common with us, then we want and need your help. Below are many ways in which you can help no matter how big or small. Our goal is to form a network of dachshund-lovers and together we will make a difference!

Committee Descriptions

***Furever Dachshund Rescue (FDR) always appreciates experienced dachshund owners and rescue volunteers but we need your commitment to our rescue.  If you currently are a member of another dachshund rescue, you will not be able to apply for membership for FDR (does not apply to a different breed rescue).  This is a conflict of interest and you will have to step down from any other same-breed rescues that you currently are a member of before you are approved for membership with FDR.     This also enables us to maintain relationships with other dachshund rescues as these relationships are important to accomplishing our mission. If you are currently a member of another same-breed rescue but would still like to help FDR, there are many non-member supporting roles that we need such as Volunteer transports, Following us on Facebook, Sponsoring a dachshund, Taking part in our donation raffles, bidding at our ebay store, helping out at events, etc.!
