Dachshund Rescue South Florida
a 501(c)(3) foster based rescue/charity
Share |

The faces below are why we do what we do!  All our dogs stay in foster homes while in our care to help us learn their personality to help find the best forever home for them.  All our dogs will come to their new families fully vetted - spayed or neutered, up to date on shots, and checked out by a vet.

I'm Ready!  Take me to the application!
Adoption Donations
DRSF's Adoption donations are done on a sliding scale based on the dogs age. We take a higher adoption donation on our younger, easier to place dogs, to help further offset the costs for our older and injured dogs, who truly, truly need our help.  Adoption fees in no way completely offset the costs of vetting and we subsidize the rest through fundraising efforts and donations.

  • ​0-3 Years Old - $325
  • 4-7 Years Old - $275
  • 8+ Years Old - $225

For Mixes
  • 0-3 Years Old - $250
  • 4-7 Years Old - $225
  • 8+ Years Old - $150

Ask about our special adoption rates for seniors over 65 years old too!​





Shelter Vs. Rescue Fees
The shelter that I have been looking at adopts dogs for $75. Why are your adoption fees so high for younger dogs?

Rescues take dogs regardless of age, temperament, and medical condition which lead to higher average medical costs than shelters who can choose to put down a dog for those very reasons.

  • Our average vetting per dog is nearly $900 (we take in many sick and injured dogs) and our average adoption fee is $285.  
  • Dogs with temperament issues can run into the hundreds for trainers who otherwise would have no chance of being adopted due to being labled "aggressive" during shelter intake.  (Wouldn't you be a bit aggressive if you were scared?)
  • Dogs in our foster care receive flea/tick and heartworm medication (There are almost no discounts for these medications for rescue and cost us the same as they cost you if you already have a dog per month x however many dogs we have in our care)
  • One back surgery or treating strays who have been hit by cars can easily run into the $4,000+ range 
DRSF's goal is to find the best match between our dogs and adopters.  Key elements include an effort to ensure dogs are placed in homes that are the best match based on energy and needs and to help protect our dogs from becoming homeless.  As such, we ask that applicants age 70 and above have a co-applicant at time of the adoption who is willing to also sign DRSF's the ownership contract agreeing to take in the adopted dog should the primary adopter become unable to care for the dog.
