About The Dachshund Rescue Web Page
Welcome to The Dachshund Rescue Web Page. Jessica Young started this page several years ago, after adopting her wonderful Dachsie Dolly via the Internet. Due to Jessica's numerous responsibilities, Tiffany Kysar assumed ownership of The Dachshund Rescue Web Page in July 1997. On November 16, 1998, the site ownership was transferred once again, this time to myself, Benny Archuleta. Tiffany was no longer able to maintain the site herself, but did wish for it to continue on. She and I feel that the resource represented by this site is too valuable to allow to go by the wayside.
On February 29th, 2000, I incorporated The Dachshund Rescue Web Page. After many months of work, I received recognition for The Dachshund Rescue Web Page, Inc., as a non-profit organization. It's was hoped that funding could be sought for the creation of a fully functional sanctuary and adoption center, as described in The Webmasters Dream.
On July 16th, 2006, I began the process of automating this website. This has been moderately successful, allowing me the time necessary to tend to the needs of my own dogs and the rescues for whom I've assumed responsibility.
Sadly, on October 31, 2007, the Dachshund Rescue Web Page ceased to exist as a not-for profit organization. The anticipated benefits of being recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization never materialized and in fact, the burdens of regulatory compliance actually resulted in a net negative. Because of this, there was no other real option, except to dissolve the organization and surrender our 501(c)(3) status. The rescue work will continue, but the volunteers will now do so under their own auspices. This website will, of course, remain available as a resource to any dachshund in need, but out of my personal pocket now.
Any assistance you would like to provide will be gratefully accepted. While your donation will not be tax deductible, I guarantee that every dollar will go directly to the care and welfare of the rescue dogs, helping to cover veterinary care, food, blankets, and other sundry supplies (including this website). The "Tip Jar" over there on the left was set up for those of you who wish to help me continue.
I would like to thank everyone who sends in information about Dachshunds needing homes, keeps me updated as to the status of listed dogs, and helps with transport and referrals.
All of the links and pages on this site should be available. If you find that this isn't the case, please let me know. Your comments or suggestions regarding this site are always welcome.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you will check back often.
