Sponsors | Supporters | Volunteering



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 sponsor, supporter or as a volunteer.  Your contribution will help us to continue providing awareness, education and support to owners of dachshunds Australia wide.
