Rocky Mountain Dachshund Rescue
The Rocky Mountain Dachshund Rescue (RMDR) is a non-profit (501)(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping dachshunds in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the nearby Rocky Mountains, who need a home.
Founded in Utah, the Rocky Mountain Dachshund Rescue is a no-kill, non-profit dachshund rescue. RMDR works with dedicated volunteers and fosters who take compassionate care of the dachshunds that we help. Our fosters are the doxies temporary family, who love them as their own! They take them to vet visits, the dog park, and cuddle with them. These compassionate individuals play a vital role in helping these furry friends find their footing and adjust to the significant changes in their lives!
“Helping dachshunds in need of a new home get the care they require and find loving forever families.”
– Rocky Mountain Dachshund Rescue,
Dedicated to Helping Dachshunds
We find foster families and forever homes for dachshunds that come to us from animal shelters, or when an owner dies, from families when housing situations change, when a dachshund has grown old. There are so many reasons a dachshund may need a new home, and we’re grateful to the people who trust us to help their doxies find a new home.
Our focus centers on dachshunds as a unique dog breed, and we are dedicated to providing the best possible support for them. RMDR works with most doxie mixes (small sizes), standard and miniature dachshunds, encompassing smooth, wire-haired and long-haired dachshunds. We actively share our knowledge with fosters and adopters who collaborate with our dachshund rescue.
In our commitment to each doxie (or bonded pair), we work to find the best foster family, take care of their medical needs, and, when the time is right, help them find forever families!

Today, Dachshunds Are Family
Once a hunting dog, the dachshund dog breed has shifted seamlessly into the role of family pet. With their charming personalities, expressive eyes, unwavering loyalty, and protective nature, these dachshunds also carry the endearing traits that once made them skilled hunter dogs. These traits include an amazing sense of smell, sweet & squishy paws that are great for digging, and a big bark. With these lovable features, dachshunds are here to stay! Together, we can help them stay on their paws.
