Doxies, weiner dogs, dachshunds, hot dogs, dash hounds, sausage dogs — no matter what you call these short-legged, long-bodied dogs, you will find people who love them. Nothing says love as much as taking in other people's unwanted, abused, or neglected dogs, caring for them, ministering to their hurts, and placing them in loving forever homes. The warm-hearted volunteers of Canadian Dachshund Rescue (CDR) perform this good deed over and over for the sake of the dogs they rescue.

Now the VKC is gearing up to support CDR, a national organization is dedicated to the rescue and adoption of dachshunds and small dachshund mixes across Canada. The goal of the CDR is to educate the public about the breed and about responsible pet ownership so we can reduce the number of animals that end up in shelters and rescues.

You can lend a hand to this fine organization though your adoption of a VKC Widget, the charitable, mixed-breed dog of the Virtual Kennel Club of Second Life. A portion of all the adoption fees of this virtual, but very real-seeming dog will be converted to real money and donated to the CDR. Have SL fun with a personable VKC Widget while performing a good deed in real life.
