DACHSHUND RESCUE OF BUCKS COUNTY & NJ is based in Bucks County, PA.
Founded in 1984 by Bucks County, PA, and New Jersey dachshund lovers, DRBC is a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization supported completely by donations. Our all-volunteer organization, which has been in existence for over 36 years, works tirelessly for the benefit of dachshunds, dachshund mixes, and the animal owning public. DRBC serves the needs of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, and Delaware.
DRBC’s mission is fivefold:
- Rescue abandoned, owner relinquished neglected, or stray dachshunds or dachshund mixes.
- Rehabilitate through excellent medical and behavioral support those in our care.
- Rehome those in our charge with an emphasis on their personality and not a quick fix based on needed space.
- Provide life-long sanctuary to those with long-term medical/behavioral issues. Additionally, DRBC supports the long-term sanctuary of senior dachshunds.
- Finally, we seek to provide community education to enhance the life and well-being of all pets through the DRBC community education program.
DRBC prides itself as an organization on the level of medical care provided and in its role as a medical resource for the dachshund breed. Community education is at the forefront of the DRBC mission.
We endeavor to obtain all dachshunds in animal shelters thus avoiding euthanasia. We also aid owners in recovering lost or stolen pets.
DRBC Educational Mission
The mission of the IVDD Program is the advancement of educational information for long hound owners and the veterinary community which treats them. This mission is achieved by delivering outstanding veterinary care and providing exceptional educational experiences for the veterinarian, the veterinary student, and the long hound owner.
