Dachshund Rescues Uncovered – What You Need To See in a Quality Dachshund Rescue

Understanding what a Dachshund Rescue is all about is important and very honorable. Visiting a Dachshund Rescue will help you discover and understand that it’s not only the puppies that need a home. There are many adult dachshunds that need a loving home as well.

Unfortunately, many dachshunds are sadly abused and abandoned by their owners, the people they are supposed to trust to love and care for them. That is how most of these sweet dogs end up in a Dachshund Rescue. They were unwanted and are now waiting to be adopted by a loving family and home. A Dachshund Rescue is a great option if you want to add a dachshund to your pack, either as a puppy or adult.

Keep in mind that you should not expect that a Dachshund Puppy Rescue will allow you to adopt and take home one of their precious dogs as soon as you walk in the door or show interest. They will expect you to fill out an adoption form, as well as answer plenty of questions about your lifestyle and intentions for the dog. You will also have to pay a fee once you successfully adopt.

Dachshund Rescues Full Exposure Policies:

Many people want to know why it is so difficult to rescue a dog. It is important to know that a Dachshund Rescue wants to make sure that their dachshunds are going to a good home, with a lot of love. They do not want their dachshunds to end up abandoned again. The well being of the dachshunds is their number one priority. That is why the process can not and should not be rushed. A quality Dachshund Rescue will make sure that they match you to the dachshund most suitable for your lifestyle and home.

Remember that not all dogs from a Rescue are the same or have the same temperament. Many are sweet, loving, and docile to everyone, while others can be aggressive, unstable, and uncertain due to their abuse and lack of training and love. With this being said, carefully selecting your dachshund is vital. Take into consideration how much you are willing to train the dachshund, and if you have other pets or children.

With that being said, you will be required to visit the Rescue more than once so that you can meet, observe, and play with the dog both in and outside of the shelter. This is a very important part of rescuing a dog from a Dachshund Puppy Rescue. It is very important that during your visits you evaluate the environment the dachshunds live in, and how they interact with the workers.

Avoid Dachshund Rescues that:

* Do not allow you to interact or spend time with the dachshund outside of the shelter before you adopt.

* Will not take the dachshund back if it turns out its not suitable for your family.

* Offer dogs that are not appropriate for adopting – vicious or in extremely ill health.

With all this being said, you can see that there is plenty for you to consider, evaluate, and look into if you decide to adopt a dachshund from a Dachshund Rescue. It is so wonderful and fulfilling to adopt a rescue dog, but be sure to do your research about the dog and the Dachshund Rescue first. Be sure to ask many questions and to spend a good amount of time getting to know the dog from the Dachshund Rescue before it enters your life and home. If you do that, you will have a happy life with your new found Dachshund Rescue friend.

Dog Rescues Need Your Help

Dog rescues are organizations with the goal of helping dogs find permanent homes. Many dog rescues are geared to a certain type of dog, for instance there is probably a rescue for any breed of dog you can name.  There are rescues for basset hounds, Dobermans, Greyhounds, etc. And there are also rescues for the ‘mutts’ of the dog world.

Dog rescues are typically operated by volunteers who are dedicated to the welfare of that breed of dog.  They try to find new homes for abandoned, abused or relinquished dogs.  The reasons for so many dogs needing homes are numerous.  Some dogs may have been strays where no owners could be found for them.  The dogs could come from pounds or shelters where their days before being euthanized were numbered.  The dogs could simply have been unwanted and relinquished by their owners for reasons unknown.  At any rate, there are a great number of dogs who need rescuing and are in need of new homes.

Most dogs found in dog rescues have been examined by a veterinarian and as such have had their shots updated, have been spayed or neutered and have had any medical problems looked after.  Some of the dogs may have ongoing medical problems, such as blindness, a missing limb or arthritis, but such conditions are disclosed before they are allowed to be adopted.

With many dog rescues, the dogs have been placed in private ‘foster care’ homes and are looked after by caring people before they are offered for adoption.  Such a process ensures that the animal is ready to be placed in a permanent home, and can often dictate what type of home is best suited for that dog.

Now, where do you come in to help dog rescues?  Every dog rescue is in need of your help in one way or another.  Here are a few ways you can help:

Adoption:  If you are looking for a dog to adopt, going to a dog rescue is a great way to get a loving pet. You can find the breed, age and type of dog you want by searching for the appropriate dog rescue.  This is the number one way to help in rescuing dogs.

Fostering:  If you do not want a permanent pet, but could take one on for a short period of time, fostering may be the way to go for you.  You can be an individual or a family with a heart big enough to take one a dog in a safe loving environment until a permanent home can be found.

Transportation:  Sometimes a dog that has been relinquished needs to travel from one place or another (for example from a shelter in one city to another city a particular breed dog rescue is located in, or a dog on his way to a permanent home in another state).  You could volunteer to transport the dog from one city to another, one state to another, or even just part of the way.  Dogs also need transporting from the rescue site to a vet appointment.  You could be very helpful in volunteering your services in this way.

Supplies:  You could donate things like dog collars, leashes, dog food, bowls, dog toys, crates or whatever else you may think of that dogs would need. Just contact the dog rescue to find out what they may need and let them know you would like to help. You could collect items from friends, family members, garage sales, etc.

Monetary Donations:  Since dog rescues are typically run by volunteers, donations are always welcome.  You donations would go towards the feeding and housing of the dogs. Adoption fees only go so far, especially when there are so many dogs in need of rescue. And, most donations are tax deductible. Again, contact the rescue to find out how to go about this.

Administration:  You could volunteer your services in an office capacity at a dog rescue. You could help process adoption application, keep records for vet and other bills, answer telephones, handle correspondence, etc.

Advertising:  One of the most important jobs for dog rescues is trying to find appropriate homes for the dogs.  You could volunteer to put up flyers, advertise in newspapers or magazines, or even send out messages on the internet to find people who may be suited to adopt a dog from the dog rescue.

Whichever way you choose to go, dog rescues would be very grateful for any help you give them. Through caring volunteers, the dog rescue benefits and so do the dogs – and the bonus for you is the knowledge that you have helped give a needy dog a loving home.

The need for a rescue plan

YOU are standing outside the doorway of an employee’s home, hands clammy, and also a cold sweat on your brow, a metallic taste inside your mouth. You’re feeling so nervous that you might throw up or even faint.

Precisely why do you feel this way?

Picture as an employer the way you would feel if you were about to explain to a family exactly why their loved one, a member of your workforce has died after falling from height.

Precisely why did this have to happen?

You understand that you simply overlooked, or just did not get around to the job of planning for rescue and emergencies, which would have saved that employees life.

Planning for rescue and emergencies in regards to work at height is actually more than a monetary concern; now it is a legal and ethical responsibility for all employers. The Working at Height Regulations 2005 and BS8437:2005. 4 (1) & (2) says:

“Every employer shall ensure that all work at height includes planning for emergences and rescue.”

My intention is to provide food for thought, ideas for the future and maybe some solutions to your immediate problems.

The advantages of a rescue plan

Even in work places of the very safety conscious employer’s accidents occur, consequently a rescue plan is an essential component of working at height and really should be managed by way of a working at height method statement and risk assessment, and should include training and practice. The lack of any form of post-fall rescue plan not merely puts the victim at risk, but also puts rescuers in harms way. Unplanned attempts at rescue frequently bring about secondary and tertiary injuries or deaths.


There are 4-phases of a rescue, each phase presents unique safety challenges and has to be considered individually. As with all safety issues, increasing safety in one area can compromise safety in others. Rescue operations are carried out under extreme pressure, whatever training your employees have had or are yet to have, will determine how they react as each phase develops.

PHASE 1- Before the fall

The key issue of fall protection prior to a fall is compliance. If a harness is too uncomfortable, or interferes too much with carrying out the work being done, operatives may not use the equipment or may modify it (illegally) to make it more tolerable. A poorly fitted harness can result in severe injuries following a fall making rescue more difficult.

PHASE 2- Fall Arrest

The whole concept of fall protection is that operatives who fall will be stopped by a shock absorbing tethering system. Unfortunately, the posture of the falling operative is unpredictable.

Depending on the harness attachment point and the position of the operative’s body at fall arrest, different harness attachments offer different advantages. An attachment near the shoulders means that any drag from the lanyard will serve to position the operative’s body in an upright position so the forces are distributed from head to foot. The head is somewhat protected if the legs and body precede it in the fall, but this offers some disadvantages after the fall arrest is completed.

PHASE 3 – Suspension

Many safety professionals naturally assume that once a fall has been arrested then the fall protection system has successfully completed its job. Unfortunately, this is not the case. An operative suspended in an upright position with the legs dangling in a harness of any type is subject to suspension trauma and orthostatic intolerance.

Fall victims can slow the onset of suspension trauma by pushing down vigorously with the legs, by positioning their body in a slight leg-high position or, by standing up. Harness design and fall injuries may prevent these actions.

PHASE 4 – Post-fall rescue

Rescue must come rapidly to minimise the dangers of suspension trauma. The circumstances together with the lanyard attachment point will determine the possibility of self-rescue.

In situations where self-rescue is not possible, operatives must be supervised at all times. Regardless of whether an operative can self-rescue or must rely on others, time is of the essence because an operative may lose consciousness in only a few minutes.

For conscious casualties we recommend (where possible) that those suspended keep their legs moving to keep the blood pumping and reduce the risk of venous pooling, whilst deploying a self recovery rescue system.

For unconscious casualties we recommend using a raising or lowering system to facilitate the rescue of an unconscious casualty, ideally the equipment chosen will allow the rescue to be carried out in less than five minutes.

Toxic Shock – Suspension Trauma – Orthostatic Intolerance

Unless the operative is rescued promptly using established safe procedures, suspension trauma caused by orthostatic intolerance could occur and result in serious or fatal injury as the brain, kidneys and other organs are deprived of oxygen. Most users of fall protection equipment are unaware of the hazard of suspension trauma.

Venous pooling – The need to faint and fall over

Death from suspension trauma is caused by orthostatic intolerance and is the result of venous pooling. This can occur any time a person is required to stand still for prolonged periods and may be worsened by heat and dehydration. Major blood vessels pass through the muscles in the legs. The movement of these muscles assists circulation by squeezing the blood back up towards the heart. If the muscles stop moving, gravity pulls the blood

down into the legs and reduces blood flow to vital organs

First Aid Procedures

Following completion of evidence based review of published medical literature: HSE has clarified guidance on the first aid management of a person falling into suspension in a harness who may develop ‘suspension trauma’.

The key recommendations are:

a) No change should be made to the standard first aid guidance for the post recovery of a semi-conscious or unconscious person in a horizontal position, even if the subject of prior harness suspension.

b) No change should be made to the standard first aid guidance of ABC management, even if the subject of prior harness suspension.

c) A casualty who is experiencing pre-syncopal symptoms or who is unconscious whilst suspended in a harness should be rescued as soon as is safely possible.

d) If the rescuer is unable to immediately release a conscious casualty from a suspended position, elevation of

the legs by the casualty or rescuer where safely possible may prolong tolerance of suspension.

e) First responders to persons in harness suspension should be able to recognise the symptoms of pre-synsope.

For further guidance contact your first aid training provider

There are many other things to consider when planning for rescue, these include:

• How will you know someone has fallen?

• What communication systems are in place, how will your employee call for help?

• Who do your other employees call when an incident occurs?

• Incident Information, what information does the emergency services require?

• How safe will the rescuers be, before, during and post incident?

• How will the rescuers get to the casualty?

• Can you rescue in under 5 minutes, is there adequate equipment available?

• What if the casualty has additional injuries?

• Other considerations such as:

Ø Language barriers

Ø Adverse weather

Ø Working alone

If you produce a rescue plan which is well thought out and sufficiently detailed to deal with the majority of, if not all situations, receive appropriate training, and practice this regularly. It is extremely improbable that you’ll ever need to explain to an employee’s family of the death of a loved one, or give an account to the HSE as to the reasons you didn’t have a plan in place, when it’s today a legal requirement to do so.
