Enlight1GetALong Adoption Process

If you have lost your heart to one of our lovable Dachshunds and want to make them a part of your family, the first step is submitting an Adoption Application.

Once we have received your application, we will review it. Our reviewing process starts with a member of the GetALong Dachshund Rescue adoption team speaking with your vet and ensuring that all of your personal animals are up to date on their shots and neutered or spayed. Then we will do a phone interview with you. In most cases, there are two phone interviews. The second being with the foster parent of the dachshund you have chosen. This second call is actually an opportunity for you to ask the foster mom or dad any questions you might have about the new dachshund you have chosen.

Since the animal has usually been in their care for at least a month they have a lot of insight into the personality, likes and dislikes of the new pet you have chosen. They will also be able to provide up to date medical information and any special needs your pet may have.

After we check your veterinarian references and have spoken with you on the phone our local representative will do a home visit. Please understand it is not our desire to intrude on your privacy in any way shape or form, our only interest is in ensuring that the animals we place in forever homes will be given the utmost love and care possible.

Please remember that there may be more than one application for each dog. Our goal is to place each dog with the home most suited to his or her personality and needs.
