The Red Foundation was founded in 2017 when the Dachshund community came together to raise funds to rescue & spay an 18 month old female Dachshund named Red. The Red Foundation’s primary mission is to protect the health and well-being of every dog in their care. They are advocates of the Dachshund breed, aiming to educate and provide support to all Dachshund owners. Furthermore, after an adoption has taken place, the charity provides a lifetime of support to all adopters and stay in contact with them for the life of the dog.
Now a fully fledged registered not-for-profit organisation, The Red Foundation has an team made up of entirely volunteers who have full time jobs. However, their love of the breed means that they each spend all of their spare time running the charity.
