Our Mission

Mile High Dachshunds Rescue is committed to protecting and improving the lives of abandoned, abused, rescued, and surrendered Dachshunds and is supported entirely by donations, grants, and fundraisers.

Our Vision

  • To provide temporary shelter in a safe, caring foster home to stray, abandoned, abused, surrendered, and discarded commercial breeding dogs for the purpose of finding permanent suitable new homes;
  • To provide spay and neuter services and any necessary medical care to those Dachshunds in our care;
  • To work with area rescues, shelters, and humane organizations to develop a solid network of volunteers and supporters in order to create a better place for homeless Dachshunds;
  • To promote public awareness and education on pet overpopulation, commercial breeding facilities (also known as puppy mills), health and wellness of our pet population and to educate on the value of senior, rescued and special needs Dachshunds.

Our Promise

Our basic guideline for everything we do is Transparency, Accountability, and Respect. Transparency is apparent in our interactions with our volunteers, with members of the community, and with members of animal welfare agencies and rescues in the area. Accountability defines our aim to build a solid framework of proven nonprofit practices as a basis for a very long, successful existence for MHDR. Respect is given to each and every volunteer, and to everyone we come in contact with when we are representing MHDR. Further, we will give that same Transparency, Accountability, and Respect to every dog that comes into our care.
