Gulf Coast Dachshund Rescue (GCDR) is a 501(c)3 non- profit organization. We are a small group of volunteers working to rescue abandoned, abused, and/or unwanted dachshunds throughout Louisiana. We provide medical and behavioral care for them and place them in loving forever homes.
Thinking of Giving Up Your Dog?
If you're considering giving up your dog, but you would really like to find a way to keep your pet, check out this link: www.wonderpuppy.net. You will find many alternatives, geared to specific problems you might be having -- behavioral problems, allergies, and lots more.
GCDR was founded in July, 2006 with the goal of rescuing dachshunds from difficult situations, rehabilitating them, and finding loving permanent homes for each one.
GCDR strives to educate the general public about the importance of spaying and neutering, as well as responsible pet ownership.
It is extremely important, as well, to educate potential dachshund owners about the dachshund standard and personality, to be certain no dachshund ends up in rescue, on the street, or worse, just for being a dachshund.
Please know- we are not a shelter. We are a small network of volunteers that foster out of our homes.
Can't adopt? Can't foster? There are many other ways you can help GCDR dachshunds! Every face in our group has a story. Many are sad, most are avoidable. You can help turn these dogs' lives around. Check out our How YOU can help GCDR page for more information! These dogs aren't just counting on us. They're counting on YOU.
See all the Dogs!
