We still need donations to help us catch up from the many vet bills we have had in the last few months. Although we have very generous veterinarians that help us, the costs do add up. Any donations would be gratefully accepted to help us continue to help the dogs that need us! Donations can be made at the bottom of this page.

2014 Weinerfest!!

Lousana Aberta


It’s time for the 10th annual picnic Alberta Dachshund Rescue Western picnic Otherwise know as Western Weinerfest 2014

Saturday August 16/14

Alberta Dachshund rescue , visit us anytime at www.albertadachshundrescue.com As usual what we need is more foster homes as without foster homes it becomes harder and harder to take in the dogs in need. Help is needed in all sorts of forms and ways from transport, to fundraising, fostering, web site, applications processing etc.

This year we will be doing a number of games as usual. I would love it if you would participate in running your own game , for anyone interested please contact me and let me know your game ahead and we will fit you into the festivities. We will have agility, bobbing for wieners, races, longest stay’s. Everyone is welcome to join in on all the activities.

Of course what is a wiener dog picnic without hot dogs so yes we are having another wiener roast to go with our wiener party. We are doing another potluck this year so feel free to bring something and please bring your own beverage. I’m supplying the hot dogs and buns. Donations are welcome but not required, we are looking to see all dogs we adopted out in the year as well as anyone owning a dachshund to come, we just want to have a fun time, play, meet new people and for me get to see my foster dogs again. I love to see the successful placements and how happy everyone has become in their new homes.

All dachshunds are welcome along with all of our dachshund’s friends, so bring your other friendly puppies if you wish, any friend of a dachshund is a friend of mine. Party is to take place at the same place in the middle of nowhere, yes that’s right Sheri’s place “The Clipper Club” if you don’t know where that is give Sheri a dingle and you will get directions sent to you. For a general idea it is east of Red Deer between Delburne and Elnora

I am very excited to see all of you again and the many newcomers as there have been many adoptions in the last year. I am hoping to exceed 30 dachshunds this year you won’t want to miss this one folks. That’s a lot of wieners at one place at one time. Please let me know if you are coming, people and dogs # so I know how many hot dogs to get, and how many people to expect.

Date: Aug16

Time 11am till whenever

Contact me for more Info, directions, and with your response, thank you and hope to see you there! Sheri President/founder ADR info@albertadachshundrescue.com

About Us

Welcome to Alberta Dachshund Rescue. We are a group of dog lovers who focus their efforts on matching homeless dachshunds with families who will love them forever.

Many of the dogs coming into our care have been abandoned or otherwise mistreated. Some of them have been malnourished or have serious health issues. Others have — for good reason — developed a mistrust of humans. We provide veterinary care to bring them back to health and behavioral therapy to restore their faith in people before we offer them for adoption.

 We are a not-for-profit organization and have no paid employees. The funds; which come from donations, fund raising activities, and our modest adoption fee, are all expended directly on the dogs.

All the dogs offered for adoption have: been spayed/neutered; received all their vaccinations; had medical/dental issues addressed; received behavioral assessment/modification as required. If there are ongoing health or behavioral issues, these will be discussed with anyone interested in adopting the animal before adoption.

We always welcome more volunteers.  We can use volunteers from anywhere. If you'd like to help us rehome these little dogs, please email us. We'll send you a list of the things we need done in your area. Our most pressing need is for foster homes. Although we have kennel facilities available, we prefer to have the dogs that are awaiting adoption live with families. 

 We can guarantee is that adopting a homeless dachshund will bring immeasurable enrichment to your life. Thank you for considering  it!





 Thank you to all who have volunteered to foster; we are still looking for more foster homes so keep sending in those applications.  Keep watching for new dogs. We will post dogs that are looking for foster homes.
