About Our Rescue Group:

We were Dachshund breeders for 25 years until we started our rescue in 1991.

We have adopted or help to adopt 900+ dogs since 1991. We place on average 75 dogs each year and placed 90 dogs in 2011 alone, a new record for us. But we turn away around 500 each year so we do what we can to help the pet overpopulation by spaying and neutering all our adoptable pets before placement.

Please read our web site for our adoption contract, waiting list form and adoption policies before getting in touch on our web site. Thank you.

Come Meet our Pets:

Visitors by appointment only and closed on Wednesdays. If new to the breed then we will do a home visit. We do have folks come to visit the dogs and the dogs have a say in who adopts them.

We also accept any purebred Dachshund needing a home at any time in the Pacific Northwest. Please call if this is an emergency placement. Please call our home phone at 509-796-2140 but please do not call this number to adopt one. Please read our web site for adoption information.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fees vary depending on how much is spent on the dog. Please read all the details about our adoption process on our main web site at http://www.spokanewienerdogs.org on our To Adopt page before getting in touch with us. Many questions are already answered on our web site. Thank you.

Our most current pets for adoption are listed on this web site and here: http://www.drnw.petfinder.com

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
