It costs a great deal of money to rescue these dogs, and we depend on the generosity of people like you to be able to continue this work. There are many ways you can help us…
TBVCR needs foster homes with Vizsla or other high energy breed experience. We need foster homes for healthy dogs and puppies, as well as medically challenged or temperamentally difficult dogs. Sometimes we need an overnight or very short-term foster home, or sometimes you might have your foster dog for two months or more, depending on whether the dog requires extensive rehabilitation. We are always looking for foster homes!
Dogs may come into rescue hundreds of miles from a suitable foster home. You can help by volunteering to drive a leg of a transport. Foster dogs may also need transportation to or from the airport, in the rare case one is flown to a foster home.
We rely on our volunteers and volunteers from other breed rescues to check animal shelters for purebred Vizslas we may be able to rescue and rehome. If you find a Vizsla in a shelter, please immediately email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEVER BUY FROM A PET STORE
99% of the dogs that come from pet stores are from puppy mills. Most pet shops fail to provide proper veterinary care to animals and often sell sick and injured animals. For each vizsla you buy from a pet store, you increase the demand, and somewhere there are poor, neglected parents that will be bred to death to keep up with that demand. Also, make sure that if you do not rescue, you get your puppy from a reputable breeder. Email us to get a list of reputable breeders in the state of Florida.
The fastest way to help is to donate money. $5, $10, $20…every little bit counts, and we appreciate every penny we receive!
