MidWest Dachshund Rescue Adoption Guidelines

At MidWest Dachshund Rescue one of our goals is to match dogs to the best forever home possible. Once an application is complete, there is alot of time and effort putting into checking references and getting home visits scheduled and completed and learning about our adopters.

We understand that our application is somewhat lengthy. With all of that in mind, please review the below requirements before completing the application:

  • Must be 23+ years of age
  • Must reside in the MidWest
  • Must be willing to travel to meet the dog at the foster home (all dogs are fostered in IL, IN, IA or WI)
  • If other animals reside in the home, they must be spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations.
  • All family members living in the home must be in agreement on adopting.
  • Must be ready to adopt. If you are moving, please wait until after you have moved to start the adoption process as a home visit is required.
  • If, for any reason and after any amount of time, you can no longer keep a dog adopted through MWDR, they must be returned to MWDR (Please note: contract is legally binding.)
Meet all the guidelines and ready to adopt?

There's a doxie waiting for his or her forever home,
and it might be with you!
