Poor Max! His Owner Passed Away!

Two and half years after being adopted Max finds his way back to SCDR after his poor owner suddenly passed away. These stories are heartbreaking, but dachshund life marches on. Max is only 6 years old, and has learned all the important stuff - he’s house trained, walks well on a leash, enjoys car rides, and gets along with other dogs.

Max’s bio is posted on our Southern California page.

 Aren’t my stubby little paws cute?!

The 2018 Wiener Winter Festival is Coming!

Sponsored by Southern California Dachshund Relief, Inc.

On Sunday, December 9, 2018, we’re starting off the holidays with our annual Wiener Winter Festival! Summer’s Wiener Roundup had a great turnout, so we’re relying on all friends of the lovable dachshund to spread the word and come out to Old World Village in Huntington Beach for a wild day of dachshunds. Holiday outfits and accessories are encouraged.


Dachshund Races!

Start training your contender early because the (few) dachshunds that take their racing seriously are faster than a speeding bullet! But also keep in mind most contenders meander, turn back, jump the divider, stop for a sniff or two or three or four, and are easily distracted. So don’t be shy about entering your best friend no matter what he/she might do when the starting gate goes up.


Many great prizes are available! Don’t forget to load up on raffle tickets for your favorite prizes!

There will also be a variety of Biere (beers) on tap, plus food, laughter, cheering (during the dachshund races the crowd gets delightfully loud), and endless dachshund stories that warm hearts. All well-behaved pets (on a leash please) are welcome.

"In dachshund racing there are no losers.  Only wieners!"

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.
