Our friends at MidWest Dachshund Rescue have been featured in several local newspapers recently in nice articles highlighting the wonderful work that they do. Last year, the fine reps, along with help from a vast network of supporters and foster homes, coordinated rescue, transport, vet care, fostering, home checks and forever home adoption for 129 dachshunds and dachshund-mixes. Woof! Excerpt from the Post-Tribune: "One of the biggest misconceptions is that all dogs in rescue are abused, which is not the case at all," said Lori Biesboer, MWDR Illinois/Indiana representative. "There are many reasons. Most common is that they are owner-surrendered because the owner does not have time to take care of their dog due to work hours; some are moving and cannot take the dog, or it can be due to a death or illness of the owner."
