Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Ontario wide. We have chapters in Quebec and the Atlantic provinces so we will adopt to those provinces.
At this time we cannot adopt to any of the other provinces and not to the USA.

About Our Rescue Group:

CDR is a volunteer driven organization dedicated to saving and rehoming abandoned, neglected, and unwanted dachshund and dachshund mixes.

Founded in 2001, CDR was created in response to the overwhelming number of dachshunds desperately needing to be rescued.

To date CDR has saved the lives of over 900 wieners from abuse or euthanasia.

CDR volunteers encompass a vast network of dedicated individuals, spanning the province of Ontario. This far-reaching group strives to ensure that no dachshund in Ontario is left behind.

CDR works closely with local, national and international animal welfare organizations, to provide care for wieners who are in distress, suffering abuse, abandoned or homeless.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are not a shelter and do not have a location you can come and visit dogs, our dogs are fostered in homes all over Ontario by qualified volunteers.

Our Adoption Process:

An application has to be filled out, references checked and a home visit done. Once approved your representative matches incoming dogs to the home you offer. A contract is filled out and donation is taken, amount is dependent on the age of the dog.

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.
