Short on Legs, Long on Moxie

Doxie By Proxy Rescue, Inc. began in January 2019 out of a passion for both rescue and the dachshund breed. The rescuers involved with this organization have over 50 years rescue experience collectively — and work tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome dachshunds and dachshund mixes in North Carolina. Previously associated with Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society, we felt a need to be more community oriented since we specifically rescue and place in our own community. Our organization requires all adopters to travel to North Carolina to adopt and prefers local adoptions so that we can continue to support the adopters after they adopt from our organization. We are a foster home based rescue that accepts shelter intakes from North Carolina as well as owner surrenders. When possible, we try to counsel and offer advice to owners considering surrendering their dachshund to our organization as a way of keeping pets in loving homes to prevent coming into rescue.
