Our Featured Pet...

Meet Jessie! Jessie is a beautiful longhair black and tan senior girl. She came to us as an owner surrender that needed someone that understood her. Jessie plays ball, loves squeaky toys and has now learned to play with other dachshunds. Can you be Jessie's forever home? Jessie does not do well with children or cats. She weighs 12 pounds, is 9 years old and her adoption fee is $150.


Are you ready for Germanfest? Join us Saturday August 6th. It's our biggest Meet & Greet of the Year and all the dachsies are talking about it. They know a lot of dachshunds meet their forever families at Germanfest, and they are all crossing their paws and saying their prayers that this year will be their year. We hope so too! It will also be our 7th year of Wiener Dog Races at Germanfest! Whether you are new to wiener dog races, you are defending your title, or you are out for a little redemption, Falls Park West is the place to be on September 6th, so be sure to get your dachshund registered by filling out an online form by clicking on FORMS! Come meet some adorable dachshunds waiting for their forever homes!

We have monthly Meet & Greets on the 3rd Saturday of every month at Your Pet Stop 501 41st Street in Sioux Falls, SD from 12:00 PM until 2:00 PM.

Our regular September Meet and Greet will be Saturday Aug 20th from 12-2 pm at Your Pet Stop, 501 East 41st Street in Sioux Falls.

Who We Are

We are a very small group of volunteers who really love the little weiner dogs. We work together to rescue abandoned, abused, and unwanted dachshunds. We provide medical and behavioral care for them. We assist in placing them in loving home and help work out transportation to get them to their new families. ...One day at a time.....One dog at a time....Friends Forever. Like most rescues the cost of medical care far exceeds the adoption donations. If you would like to donate to Dakota Dachshund Rescue please use the donation button.

Adopting a friend

All our rescues dogs are current on shots and spayed or neutered.
1. Animals will only be placed with adults. You must be at least 18 years of age or older to adopt a dog from DDR. No dogs will be placed to serve merely as guard or hunting dogs.
2. Puppies will be at least four (4) months of age before being placed in homes where the children are under 10 years of age. Health and humane authorities agree that a young child usually cannot be expected to handle a puppy or kitten properly. Mishandling is likely to result in injury to the animal, child, or both.
3. No animal will be released for adoption as a gift to another person. The recipient may not want the animal or may not be suitable or compatible with the recipientís lifestyle. 4. We require written and/or verbal permission from the landlord or agent before a dog is adopted out to a person living in rental housing. We are not professional dog handlers, vets, or trainers, but we care for a lot of dachshunds and will do our best to help in any situation. If you can no longer keep your dog at any time in its life, we will take the dog back into our rescue group - in fact, we insist that you return the dog to us. Any dog that goes through this group will be protected for life. That's a commitment we make to each dachshund that comes through our doors. You can email us for an application at: dakotadachshund@hotmail.com Please be aware that all of the volunteers work full time regular jobs and volunteer their time at DDR. If you call and do not get an answer, please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. VISIT OUR WEBSITE AT www.dakotadachshundrescue.org
