Portland Dachshund Rescue Inc is a non-profit, no-kill organization passionately committed to providing care and rehoming to dachshunds in need throughout the Portland, Oregon area as well as the Pacific Northwest.
We envision a world where our rescue is not only saving dogs that have been left behind but also educating the community about the unique challenges dachshunds face, transforming each new volunteer and adoptive family into ambassadors for the breed.
Our Core Values:
There's nothing better than a successful match. We like to explain the process of finding the right rescue dog as being similar to online dating: You will want to check our site often to see who is new, read each bio and reach out if you think they might have found someone special.
Our adoption team is highly skilled at helping you find a dog with the right personality that will fit your family and lifestyle. Occasionally, we receive multiple promising applications for a dog and ultimately match the dog with the home where we think they will do best.
We are committed to helping you find a dog even if you don't "match" on your first attempt. We would love nothing more than to help you find the forever dog of your dreams.
Although we like to tailor each match, we do have some basic criteria we look with respect to adoptive homes:
*Homes should be non-smoking
*Have a securely fenced yard
*Ability to commit to yearly dentals and shots for the pet
*Willingness to purchase ramps and pet stairs to safeguard the dog's back
