WHAT IS IVDD ASSIST?
IVDD Assist is a Dachshund IVDD Support Australia initiative helping struggling owners of IVDD affected Dachshunds by gifting IVDD aids or similar.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
PLEASE NOTE: ALLOCATIONS FOR 2022 HAVE NOW BEEN FILLED.
SUBJECT TO AVAILABLE FUNDS, 2023 FUNDING WILL BE ALLOCATED IN THE FIRST QUARTER OF 2023. CHECK SOCIAL MEDIA & WEBSITE FOR ANNOUNCEMENTS.
