DRBC Foundation Groups
The DRBC Foundation Groups
Not long after the founding of DRBC, it became clear that many good homes needed a level of support that did not include rescue and rehoming. The DRBC Foundation Group was established within the rescue in 1995 to help support families seeking compliance to a sound veterinary plan who would not otherwise be able to keep their beloved dachshund.
Renamed the Penelope Fund in 1997, this arm of the foundation has sought to educate dachshund owners and increase the compliance effort towards a 100% spay/neuter rate and continually works to achieve a similar goal with AMVA vaccination requirements.
Expansion of the foundation in 1997 to include the Homer Fund allowed our foundation to mirror the community effort of keeping loved and well cared for animals in their current home in spite of a critical injury or complex medical condition. Homer's Fund is pleased to support on-going research into many of the major medical problems affecting our breed today.
