Meet + Greets

Did you find a special pupper on our Meet the Pups or Facebook page, or just want to see what’s available in person? We regularly hold public adoptions around the greater Los Angeles area where you can meet a number of our available fur friends. Or you can schedule a private meet + greet with a foster at time that’s convenient for you. If you’re ready to take home one of our dogs, you can fill out an adoption application and submit to

Ready to volunteer – we need YOU! Being a foster helps save a life from kill-shelters, hoarders, breeders, dogs found in the streets, or regular owner surrenders. This is a great way to open your home and make a tremendous difference without making a lifetime commitment…but sometimes that happens, too ( :

If you are interested and able to foster please reach out through the submission form on our Contact page, or email Cheryl Stone at



You can find cute, cozy, and custom creations supporting all things DAFR at our direct Etsy shop: DachshundsandFriends


We hold quarterly auctions on Facebook which include one-of-a-kind items, specialty doxie and doggie memorabilia, home goods, clothing and more, to help raise funds on our Facebook Group: @dachshundsandfriendsrescueauctions


Being a rescue ain’t cheap….every dog that comes in to our care is checked with a vet, given a microchip, any needed vaccines, collars, licenses, and are spayed and neutered if not already. Some dogs we welcome also come with more severe concerns that can involve therapy, training, and even surgery. Your financial support goes a long way to sustain the life and longevity for our four-legged friends. We ask that you help or make a gift.
