Welcome to DREAM Dachshund Rescue!

We are completely volunteer operated and all of our dogs are located in foster homes (which means we get to know them really well!). 100% of our operating costs are funded through tax-deductible contributions and fundraising- we receive no government funding. We envision a time when every dachshund in Georgia has a loving home for its entire life. Check out our ‘Who We Are’ page to learn more about us and the way we do what we do.

Handsome Lucca, just a wee thing at 8 pounds, is new to DREAM. He comes in with his mates Palermo, Venezia and Milano. (click links to go to description.) Completely adorable and full of life, this little group is such a delight.  Black and tan your thing? Then you are absolutely just going to shriek with sounds you never knew you could make when you see this crew. These sweet little butterbeans were in a loving but not ideal situation, and due to the notice of a good Samaritan, and someone who said something and actually followed up- what a great outcome for all. You can learn more- and complete an application right online at our website. Take a look at the other cuties just waiting for their happy-ever-after, too.

The much anticipated, never duplicated HOWL-O-WEENIE will soon be upon us- put it on your calendar! More details coming sooooooooon. We can tell you it will be at the same venue as last year- the wide open, parking-friendly, real-bathroom-having, covered-area-providing, electricity-including Clayton County International Park. Need to stay over night? Book a pet friendly hotel. There will be food. There will be beer. There may be wine. There will be dachshunds, oh lawsy, will there be dachshunds! So hey, diarize it- Saturday, October 1st. (There is no admission price for this event, but we hope you spend lots of money while you’re there!!)

Meet Miss Widget  

This little sassy miss is really like that unicorn of

dachshunds- housetrained (!!), purebred, crate trained, and

oh so friendly- to men, women, children, and other dogs. 

You’ll hardly believe this, but I promise you it’s true,

Widget was tossed away like trash from a moving car. Just,

poof- out the window she went. Widget though, is one of

the lucky ones. She was picked up by a good samaritan and

now, she finds herself with us here at DREAM. Her foster

mama told us that she’s such an easy keeper, that she can

handle TWO foster dogs, since Widget is no trouble at all! This girl knows she is in for a

fabulous chapter two in her life- as you can see from her photo, she’s got a joie de vivre,

an air about her that makes you want to smile, to stop and smell the roses…or the

grass…or the lets-not-mention-it at the dog park, because, hey- life is good. 

You can complete an application for Widget, check out her profile, or just browse all of

our dogs for adoption at www.dreamrescue.org Click HERE.
