Greetings dachshund lovers! Before looking into adoption from our organization, PLEASE be aware that we are not like most rescues. Our mission and passion is education about our beloved breed AND excellent standards of care that will enable you, the adopter, to be the best advocate for your dog(s) that you can be.
We are not looking for perfection or reasons to disqualify you for adoption! We are looking for patient, open minded individuals that will welcome the information we have to share and be willing to discuss and address any concerns we have prior to adoption.
We look forward to hearing from you!
