Rocky Mountain Dachshund Rescue

Rescue, Foster, Adopt

Our rescue takes in dachshunds and manages all of their veterinary needs, and our foster families give them love and care before they are adopted. As a no-kill rescue, our mission is to provide essential medical services, rehabilitation, and adoption opportunities for these long little dogs.
