Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We have adopted or help to adopt over 1300+ dogs since 1991. We place on average 125+ dogs each year and placed 132 dogs in 2015 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. We are already answering 500+ emails a day with this rescue. Thank you.
Our dog rescue is located at the director's farm northwest of Spokane. There is no bus service here. Directions are given once an appointment is made in advance and once our pre-adoption paperwork is filled in so we can match dogs to their new families.
We also accept any purebred Dachshund needing a home at any time in the Pacific Northwest. Please call if this is an emergency placement ONLY. 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, the To Adopt page at www.spokanewienerdogs.org
Please read all the details about our adoption process on our main web site at http://www.spokanewienerdogs.org on our To Adopt?Fee page before getting in touch with us. Many questions are already answered on our web site. Thank you. Adopters do need to start our adoption process with our waiting list form rather than with a phone call or email. Thanks.
Our most current pets for adoption are listed on this web site and here: http://www.drnw.petfinder.com
We have volunteer and adoption visiting here at 10 am daily with an appointment in advance. We do not maintain a retail location for our dog rescue so visitors are welcome, 3000+ visitors a year now, by making an appointment in advance. Closed Wednesdays.
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.
