Halfway House
From Dreams to Dachshunds

Halfway House
One of the major operations of AADR is being able to respond to Dachshunds in needs. Sometimes it is because a Doxie has shown up at a shelter, or maybe a Dachshund is in a dangerous home situation where their safety is not assured.  We don't have days or weeks to line up a foster home, time is something not on the Dachshund's side.  Maybe it is a hoarding situation or a breeder has finally agreed to relinquish the animals trapped in their hands...  All of these create emergencies where AADR needs to step in first and then sort out the dog's longer term options.

The Halfway House provides this respite for our dogs!  With a few runs available, we can ensure that Dachshunds needing our help won't be sitting in a shelter or even worse, a backyard breeder's unheated, unkempt shed.  Instead, we can step up and get the dog to safety.

The Halfway House won't change our core principles.  We will still be a home-foster based program where Dachshunds are placed in loving foster homes while they await an adopter.  It just provides us a way to move them into our care.  Care will be provided and they will get their initial vetting done.  Then when transport is arranged (normally only 7-10 days, they will be moved to a foster home -- so they are Halfway to their forever home.
