Animal Rescue and Foster Network

We are a large network of people dedicated to the safety and well being of all animals.  Our goal is to organize a National network of Rescues, Fosters, Transports, Pickers, Sponsors and Vets so that when an urgent need for rescue arises, all the people necessary to make that happen will be able to find each other quickly and save a life before it is too late.

Dachshund Rescue of North America

About DRNA

Dachshund Rescue of North America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with one sole purpose — rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing needy dachshunds and mostly dachshund mixes. We are a network of experienced rescue people with strong representation in the northeast, mid-Atlantic, midwest, and southeast. DRNA began with a small number of rescuers who worked independently for a year before incorporating in 1999 to realize the benefits of combining resources. Over our history we have placed well over 8,000 dogs, and are by far the largest dachshund rescue organization in the country.

What We Do
Most dogs spend at least a short time in foster care so we can evaluate their behaviors in a home setting. We can give potential adopters information on how they may interact with cats, kids, men, women, other dogs, and so on. These are vital components to a good match. We also try to improve potty training skills if they are not already house trained. Foster homes provide good nutrition and an understanding lap to prepare our dachshunds for life in a world where fear and starvation are non-existent.

All dogs placed by DRNA have been checked out by a veterinarian. The following procedures have been completed:

Spayed or neutered
Rabies vaccine
DHPPC vaccine
Fecal tested – negative
Heartworm test – negative. If they are found heartworm positive, they are treated as long as they are deemed healthy enough to undergo the treatment. If not, we examine what options are available or keep them in foster while improving their health status. This will be noted on their dog page.
Dental cleaning, if needed.
We also try to identify, if not treat, any long-term conditions such as thyroid imbalance, allergies, diabetes, etc. so that you, as the adopter, know what you are committing to.

How We Do It
DRNA has a standard placement fee, regardless of the condition in which the dog was received. We are able to accomplish this through the generosity of donations. We think that there IS a home somewhere for every dog we foster. Some just take a little longer to find.

Elder Paw’s Rescue

Elder Paws Senior Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization dedicated to reducing the euthanasia rate of senior dogs age 7 and older in overcrowded kills shelters based on age and age related medical conditions.  Homeless senior dogs are seen as less adoptable and are often first to be “red listed” (put on euthanasia list) to make room for younger, more adoptable dogs.

Elder Paws believes that all dogs have value and that being old is not a good reason to receive a death sentence. We are a foster-home-based rescue, not a shelter or facility of any kind.  We act solely as a resource for city and county kill shelters to rescue “red listed” seniors and give them a 2nd chance at life. We currently do not accept owner surrenders.

Each of our seniors receives the veterinary care necessary to restore their health and provide them with the best possible quality of life. Veterinary care for senior dogs can be very expensive as compared to younger dogs, typically based on years of neglect,  so we rely rely solely on donations, grants, and fundraising efforts to continue to save lives. As a 501c3 all donations are tax deductible.  Each of our seniors is placed in a loving foster home to provide them with the family experience they are used to and to monitor their habits, characteristic and “quirks” so as to better inform potential adopters. Because senior dogs are calmer, less active, and typically trained they make great companions for senior citizens, the physically or mentally challenged, and anyone looking for a pet that will not require extensive amounts of time to exercise or train.

Elder Paws believes strongly in education and we take part in community outreach events to provide pet owners with important information and resources needed for the responsible care of dogs age 7 and older.

How can you help Elder Paws?

  1.  Adopt a senior dog…Senior dogs make great low maintenance companions.  And everything has already been done for you before you take home your new best friend!!  Elder Paws makes every attempt to match senior dogs with the right forever home.   Our adoptions process includes a home inspection and follow up calls after the adoption is complete.  If you have room in your heart and your home for a senior dog who will show you a lifetime of love and devotion then please consider adopting one of our sensational seniors.   2.  Foster…Since all of our seniors needs a place to go to once they are out of the shelter fostering is crucial in saving the lives of our old souls.  Please see the “Fostering” link in the drop down menu under the “Senior Dogs” link on our homepage for more information.  3.  Donate…Senior dogs are a whole lot more expensive to treat often due to years of neglect. The majority of our seniors need a dental cleaning before being adopted, many having never had a dental cleaning and sufering from severe periodontal disease. The dental cleaning alone costs us over $250 not including the cost of extractions. Add treatment of age related medical conditions to that and it can easily cost $600 or more for vet bills for a senior dog.  Your donations help us to cover the cost of these vet bills that allow us to continue to rescue senior dogs and provide them with the veterinary care they need to live a better quality of life.  You can donate on a one time basis or on a monthly basis option at our website.   4.  Volunteer…Elder Paws holds adoption events several times a month throughout the year to bring awareness to our senior dogs and to help in finding quality, loving forever homes for them.  We also participate in educational events several times a year.  And we hold a fundraiser once a year to bring in much needed funding to continue to save lives of old shelter dogs.  All this is not possible without the help of volunteers.  We are looking for committed volunteers in all phases of rescue, including those who can make telephone calls or transport our seniors to and from vet visits.  If you would like to volunteer we are happy to plug you in somewhere or create a special volunteer opportunity for you.   5.  Board Members…We are currently looking to add committed members to our Board of Directors.  Our Board Members play a key role in working collectively to steer the direction of our organization towards its mission of saving the lives of old souls.  If you have an hour or two a month and want to have a powerful voice in shaping and growing our unique non profit organization within the community we encourage you to join our Board.  Elder Paw’s on Facebook

Leave No Paws Behind

WHO WE ARE: Leave No Paws Behind is a 501 (c) 3 non profit corporation governed by the laws of the State of California. We are an all breed foster based rescue, specializing in seniors and animals with special needs. When possible LNPB will step up to help save the lives of those that are in most danger of being left behind to die on a cold shelter floor. LNPB provides hospice care, comfort, love and a safe haven for the terminally ill and we try to assure that no senior animal is left to die alone on a cold shelter floor afraid and wondering. Upon rescue LNPB immediately has all of our rescues vetted and those with minor and treatable medical needs and disabilities per diagnosis from the Doctor’s are then placed in the loving care of fosters until they are adopted as LNPB never boards our rescues . LNPB’s more serious medically challenged rescues such as seniors who may suffer with terminal and/or severe mobility medical conditions as diagnosed by the Doctor’s are placed in loving hospice/long term foster care for as long as needed. From time to time and when deemed necessary by our Doctor’s due to severe pain, suffering and illness, we have the sad task of helping our beloved animals cross the rainbow bridge. We are with them, holding and loving them in the end as they peacefully pass quietly in our arms. We do not hesitate to pull the terminally ill or the ones the shelter will inevitably PTS due to sickness and/or inability to walk as we cannot bear having them die alone, frightened and sadly wondering. We are doing for our four legged friends what they cannot do for themselves. We are their voice and we will continue saving lives one paw a time as we make every effort to assure we Leave No Paws Behind. LNPB relies solely on public donations, no amount is too small and all amounts benefit the health and well being of abused and abandoned animals and are tax deductible. (EIN# 45-2717681)


Lost Fantasy Rescue

Horses and companion animals.

We are a completely volunteer rescue that works with the rescue, rehabilitation, adoption, and sanctuary of horses and companion animals. We have a very low overhead so all monies donated go directly to the care of the animals. We operate on donations (both from private individuals and from the occasional corporate sponsor) and money directly out of our own pockets. Our horses come from livestock sales, private owners, and sometimes from classified ads. Our companion animals most usually come from the local high kill shelters and from private homes. Every horse and companion animal is given lots of individual attention and love before they are adopted out to their pre approved adoptive family.

We are also involved in rescue transport for animals who have been pulled from shelters to go into foster homes to await their very own “forever” home. We work with various other rescue groups throughout the state (especially the other VA equine rescues) to ensure that every animal leaving the shelter will have a home to go to.

We speak for those who have no voice and defend those who have no defense. All of the animals placed by us are temperament tested, exposed to all types of other animals, socialized, UTD on shots, and altered prior to placement.

We will accept permanent/lifetime animals into our program as space permits ~Some will require an upfront donation before the animal comes to our facility~ Donation amounts are based on the particular animal and the circumstances surrounding its placement with Lost Fantasy. Please contact us at for more information.

One Reply to “Rescues”

  1. A Washington Township pet store’s doors will be closed for the next month after it was found to be in violation of health and safety regulations.

    The Washington Township council passed a resolution to suspend The Puppy Stop’s license for 30 days, beginning on April 1, and charge a $500 fine after an investigation by the Gloucester County Department of Health alleged violations regarding the Fries Mill Road store’s keeping of medical records and sanitary conditions.

    According to a case synopsis of the department of health v. The Puppy Stop, Inc., the pet store was issued a noncompliance rating after county and state animal facility inspectors found violations in May and June of last year.

    The “charging documents” issued to the store owner, Mark Harnish, alleged problems with sanitary operations, as well as problems with “patterns and practices” in suggesting the suspension of his operation license.

    The synopsis said inspectors could not “effectively correlate” the animals’ medical histories because of issues with intake records. The county reported it did not find any specific harm to animals.

    In addition to ceasing operation for 30 days, the owner is to implement a “record keeping system that will ensure that inspections can be done such that each animal’s medical history can be easily tracked and verified,” as well as “pay strict attention to labeling and expiration of medication.”

    The synopsis also said Harnish “presented as someone who has a genuine concern for those animals in his care.”

    Since 2010, the county’s Department of Consumer Protection has received five complaints regarding The Puppy Stop.

    A man who identified himself as the owner, but did not give his full name, said he had “no comment” on the closing when contacted by phone last week.

    A notice on the pet store’s Facebook page said the store would be temporarily closing for renovations, including upgrades to the floors, pens, walls and more. It announced on the page on March 26 that “ALL PUPS NEED TO FIND HOMES THIS WEEK.”
