What we do
Cape Dachshund Rescue is a pro-life organisation focused on rescuing, rehoming and rehabilitating Dachshunds in need in South Africa.
When applying for one of our special Cape Dachshund Rescue dogs, we ask that you fill in a form which gives us an idea of who you are. We will then contact you and arrange for one of our wonderful volunteers to do a 'home check'. Once we have been given the go-ahead by our home check volunteer, the adoption fee is payable and a suitable time is arranged to drop off the precious new family member/s.
Adopting a Dachshund
Our adoption fee is R1100, this includes sterilization/neutering and first vaccinations of your Dachshund / honorary Dachshund.

Frosty Foster Program
y Face Foster Program we can help with all that.
Are you wanting the company of a pooch but no longer have the zest or energy for puppy antics and wee stains? Perhaps you also don't have the finances for all those pesky vet bills? We may have just the solution for you!
Our Frosty Face Foster Program we can help with all that.
The applicant would have to be 60 or older.
The dog in question would have to be 10 or older.
It would be an "open-ended" fostering, whereby the home would keep the dog until either the dog passed the Rainbow Bridge or the circumstances of the applicant changed - i.e. assisted living or they themselves passed the Rainbow Bridge.
Cape Dachshund Rescue will be liable for any vet expenses incurred bearing in mind that major surgery at this age is inadvisable.
The applicant would be responsible for the day to day living expenses, i.e. food, water.
There would be no adoption fee applicable
Should the applicant's circumstances change to the point that they are no longer able to care for the dog, the dog would be returned to Cape Dachshund Rescue or should a family member opt to adopt the dog, the relevant home check of the family member will apply.
Applicants would need to reside near the cities and towns of Cape Town

Surrendering a Dachshund
We take in Dachshunds that are in need of a new home and place them with suitable foster families. This ensures that our foster dogs receive personal love and attention until they are placed in a permanent home.
