Adoption Process

Mile High Dachshunds rescue always has the best interest of the dachshunds at heart. Because we accept these dogs into our care, it is our responsibility to place them in homes that will provide them with love and healthy living conditions for their specific personalities. 


When you are ready to adopt, we ask you to complete our friendly screening process, which ensures safe and successful adoptions!

  1. Fill out an Adoption Application and submit it.

  2. We’ll have a brief conversation with you to determine your needs and preferences, find out about your daily schedule, and talk about your previous experience with pets. 

  3. If applicable, we’ll call your veterinarian to ensure that previous pets have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and well cared for.

  4. We’ll visit your home to see the environment where the dachshund will live and answer your questions. 

  5. Please remember, an application does NOT guarantee an adoption.
