This week, Bruce & Hobbes are joined by:
Siobhan Brenda Johnson, Co-Founder, Vice-President - GetALong Dachshund Rescue.
GetALong Dachshund Rescue (GADR) is a Dachshund rescue helping animals in over 20 states. The organization steps up for senior dachshunds, and those with severe medical needs. GADR also rescues young dachshunds. GADR’s main purpose is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dachshunds in forever homes, where they can live their lives in safe, loving environments. GADR even sometimes finds itself providing loving arms, and safe foster homes, for the severely ill to live out their last days, being loved and cherished.
Many of the dachshunds they work with are abandoned in shelters because they can no longer provide their “owners” with healthy puppies to be sold. The other reason is they have gotten old, and are in need of medical attention that the “owners” don’t want to pay for. Sadly, in many instances, the only medical care these dogs have ever had, was their first shots as puppies.
GADR does an incredible amount of lifesaving work, and Siobhan joins Bruce & Hobbes to talk about it!
During her visit, Siobhan discusses:
How the GADR works
The organization’s mission
Where the dogs come from
What it’s like to have a dachshund as a companion animal
How many dachshunds they help annually
The issues they face
Mobility or special needs dachshunds
The adoption process, and how people can get involved!

That was fun!
Really enjoyed listening to your show. Informative and relaxed, but not overly "cute." Thank you. I was aware of Sniff & Barkens, so I was happy to hear the interview with their Creative Director, Ms. Trasoff.
