We are a breed-specific NFP charity managed by a small group of dedicated volunteers. We aim to –
- Promote community awareness about Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD) in dachshunds & other primary health issues.
- Advocate for the education of dachshund owners in the awareness of IVDD.
- Provide advocacy and support to owners who have dachshunds affected by IVDD.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated, whether you join us as a volunteer, sponsor or donate. Your contribution will help us to continue providing awareness, education and support to owners of dachshunds Australia wide.
Volunteers are an integral part of our organisation. They are the backbone of the Company and are there helping spread awareness, education and support throughout Australia via our Support Group, Facebook Page, Instagram account, via the multitude of Facebook Dachshund owners’ groups, the Expos we attend at various locations around Australia – the list is endless.
If you can offer your time, expertise, guidance or help – wherever, whenever and however it fits into your lifestyle, please consider becoming a Volunteer. It’s a truly rewarding experience and most importantly we would love to have you having our backs!
