Meet Finley, the Super Senior!

Once upon a time, Finley was the “only dog” of a wonderful lady.  He was cuddled and spoiled, and very well taken care of.  Sadly, his owner began to suffer from dementia and everything changed. Finley is a shy boy who enjoys a quiet home environment.  He loves to lounge in his little bed.  He likes being held and cuddled.  Finley likes going for leisurely walks and enjoys car rides too.

Read Finley's full bio where you'll find an adoption application!

In 2017 SCDR rescued over 300 dachshunds, pushing our grand total to over 4,200 dachshunds saved since we were founded in 1994. Our doors our open to all doxies from all walks of life , including the old, injured, and "hospice" dogs.  Some rescues are very expensive to vet, but we do whatever is necessary for the love of the breed.

SCDR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit operating entirely on donations and with volunteers.  All donations, big or small, help take care of these wonderful dogs.

The 2017 Wiener Winter Festival Was Great Fun For All!

There were brawts, beer, and dachshunds all around as guests and volunteers alike enjoyed the fun and games.  The dachshund races are always the highlight of the event, and this year was a real treat because so many doxies wanted to race!

 Stella is exhausted from all the fun.
