Founder and Organizer

Emily is the founder and organizer of the Buffalo Dachshund Club, a Meetup.com group located in Buffalo, NY, created for local Western New York dachshund breed owners. The group supports and advocates for the rescue and adoption of dogs in need, and meets monthly to socialize and educate members about health, nutrition and training for their popular “hot dog” breed. The group also alerts members of rescue initiatives and works  with local rescue groups to help find forever homes for and spread the word about adoptable dogs.
