About Team Doxie

​Mile High Dachshunds Rescue, affectionately known as Team Doxie, fosters dachshunds who have found themselves abandoned, in a shelter or relinquished to us. Based in Denver, we rescue dachshunds throughout the West and help each find a loving family to meet their personalities.


We are a Colorado nonprofit corporation designated by IRS as a 501(c)(3) charity in 2015. We are a committed group of volunteers and operate solely on donations, grants and fundraisers.


We have helped 273 dachshunds find their forever families and homes.

Our Mission. Mile High Dachshunds Rescue (MHDR) is committed to protecting and improving the lives of abandoned, abused, rescued, discarded commercial breeding dogs, 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.
