Sherry and I decided that it would be a nice thing to do to act as "foster parents" for dachshunds that needed a temporary home. We do this through the group called "Dachshund Rescue of North America" (DRNA). Please visit their website by clicking on that link, or by clicking HERE.

Foster homes are the backbone of any rescue group and Dachshund Rescue of North America is no different. They must turn down dogs every day because they just don’t have the room.

A typical foster home would be one that is familiar with dachshunds and can lovingly accept one in their home for an average of 1-2 months. During the dachshund’s foster period, the foster home would stay in close contact with a DRNA representative, be willing to take the dog to the vet when necessary and work with the dachshund in areas he may need training. (House or obedience training, for example) The foster home is instrumental in getting the dachshund ready for adoption. DRNA pays for all approved vetting costs, while the foster home provides food, love, and care.

Since volunteering for this worthy cause, we have fostered the following dogs:
