The Long on Love Senior Program is a way for those more experienced pet owners (age 60 and older) to find a loving senior dachshund/dachshund mix to join their home.
Most senior dachshunds are housebroken and wanting to give their love to someone. Dachshunds can live to be 18 years old, so senior dachshunds still have lots of love to give.
Little Paws Dachshund Rescue (LPDR) receive senior dachshunds from shelters or owner surrenders. Many times they are surrendered to us or to the shelter because the death of owner and other family members don’t want the dog; working too many hours; doesn’t get along with a new puppy; there is a new baby in the house; need to move to a place where dogs are not allowed; kids going off to college; allergies; and the new spouse doesn’t like them. How sad for these seniors that have given their love to someone their entire lives.
Little Paws Dachshund Rescue (LPDR) would like to encourage experienced pet owners to adopt by offering an adoption discount fee to Seniors, 60 years and older, who adopt a senior dachshund/dachshund mix from our rescue. This fee includes spay/neutering, all shots (Rabies and Distemper) and a microchip implant. We will also ensure they receive a dental if needed. View our current fees.
To qualify for the program, you must show proof of age and have a care plan in place. Senior animals will be identified on our website with the notation “I am part of the Long on Love Senior Program” in the profile.
