About K Kids Dachshund Rescue Inc

We save dachshund lives by matching them from shelters and surrendering owners, regardless of age or health or even selected needed behavior modification, with pre-screened adopters who will give them loving and safe forever homes and take care of them for the rest of their lives. We are adopter friendly and work without judgment. Our goal is to prevent dachshunds from ever entering the shelter or rescue system to begin with by focusing on owner education which covers dachshund health and behavior issues, financial counseling for vet expenses, and estate planning for what happens if your dachshund outlives you. We do this because of our passionate and fierce devotion to the breed.

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Staunton, VA.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
