On January 6th, 2015 we rescued 11 of 71 Westminster Breeder Dachshunds from the Massachusetts breeder raid. Pictures below are of one of the dachshunds that we rescued. We are very thankful to have helped these precious babies find their forever homes!

WHO WE ARE...
Furry Angels Dachshund Rescue (FADR) is a small 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping Dachshunds find their forever homes. The rescue was founded in 2012 and is based in Foster, Rhode Island. FADR is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of the breed we hold so dear: the Dachshund or doxie. Our dogs come to us from shelters, veterinarians, owner surrender and occasionally other rescue groups. Our service area primarily consists of Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut; however, we adopt throughout the New England area and sometimes beyond! We are not affiliated with any other rescue groups or shelters. We are a stand alone group of dachshund lovers that donate our time, money and love to rescuing the Dachshund breed.
OUR MISSION IS CLEAR...
Furry Angels Dachshund Rescue (FADR) will:
Seek to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home as many dachshunds as is physically and financially possible within the Rhode Island and New England area and sometimes beyond.
Work with animal control to educate members of the community about the characteristics and needs of the dachshund breed.
Work with other reputable dachshund groups to enhance the national rescue initiative and raise awareness about puppy mills and rescue mills. Over 20 years of experience with the dachshund breed.
