Rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing needy dachshunds throughout the Midwest since 2003.
MWDR receives calls every week about abandoned or surrendered Dachshunds from shelters, vets, and families.
There are many reasons Dachshunds become available: owners fall ill or are unable to care for them, families come under financial hardship, or owners situation in life has changed. MWDR dogs are simply victims of unfortunate circumstances.
If there are any special considerations for a particular dog, we disclose them to foster families and allow them to determine whether or not the special needs will fit with their family and lifestyle.
Join us in fostering Dachshunds, and you'll quickly learn why so many families in your community are falling in love with the process of rescuing and rehoming Doxies.
From first contact to forever home, every action we take in the foster process is based on the best interests of the dogs we serve.
