Thank you for your interest in the work of New Mexico Dachshund Rescue and our little charges!
Because you have expressed an interest in providing a forever home and becoming parent to one of our rescues, we ask that you please complete the attached application in its entirety. Once the application is received, we will review it and work diligently to make the perfect match.
Our application is lengthy because it has to be. This is a second chance at life for our little rescues, and we love each of them as though they were our own. They count on us to find the perfect loving home for them, and we don’t want to make any mistakes!
It is important that each question is answered as honestly and completely as possible to enable us to make that ‘perfect match’. Some of our rescues have broken pasts (physical abuse, lack of human contact, no socialization). Some are great with children; others are best in an adult-only home. Some may need extra training and patience to refine their interpersonal and/or inter-canine skills.
We will check your references and perform a home visit prior to matching you with a rescue. This allows us to identify any potential hazards a Dachshund might encounter, as well as possible escape routes, should they feel adventurous! We may ask you to make modifications to ensure the safety of the Dachshund prior to placement in your home.
You can submit your application using the online form below, or by downloading and completing the application pdf. Download pdf format here
You may submit this application via email to: email@example.com or mail it to:Kari Skollingsberg PO Box 23 Fort Stanton, NM 88323
