Happy Halloweenie Costume Contest at the dog rescue every October!  Hot dog outfits will not win and are so passe so dress up your cuties for fun prizes and bragging rights.  When folks come they often give us donations.  Donations are appreciated to help us stock up on supplies for the winter like flea meds, worm meds, shots, food, toys, etc.

Want to come join the fun?  Join our Facebook page for Dachshund Rescue NW where we put all of our event details.  Every wiener owner is invited even if you did not adopt from us.

St. Patty's Day parade every March in downtown Spokane, Wash.

Many of these events below are free to attend with your family and wiener dogs and mixes.  We do try to have fun with our adoptable dogs plus the dogs that folks have already adopted from us.  The events are posted on our Dachshund Rescue NW Facebook page for current events and details on what time and where to meet, cost which is usually $5 per dog donation is suggested.  We add events as needed also so please like us on Facebook for the latest daily photos of newly adoptable dogs, fun events, answering your wiener questions and more.

These shots below were the Northwest Pet Expo on March 24, 2018 was a new event started and we plan on going next March at the Spokane fairgrounds.  We had a dog adoption booth and selling items to benefit the dog rescue.  We also had fun Wiener Dog Races so now we do races every March and October!  Come join the fun for 2019.  Their website:  


Oktoberfest!  See our Dog Adoption Booth for all three days with the Wiener Dog Races the last Sunday!  We love being at Oktoberfest at the Centerpoint Event Center in the Spokane Valley each year.  We will be there for our fourth year in October 2018!

Adoption Booths all year long and held all around town for adoptable wieners where we always need volunteers!  Our Facebook page always has current event details.

Dog Hugging Volunteers come here at the farm all year long unless the roads are too icy.  We are located northwest of Spokane.  Visitors are always welcome with emails in advance to schedule their appointments so no one gets chomped.  Thanks everyone for volunteering!  Please see our To Volunteer page on this site for more details.

Open Houses and Potlucks at the Wiener Ranch several times a year.

In late November we also have an adoption booth and retail items for sale via donation at the Spokane fairgrounds, or with the Basset folks at their Santa Paws event.  We have a lot of fun there with Christmas decorations and kick off to the Christmas season!  More details of course on our Facebook page.

 We now have 3000+ visitors here to the Wiener Ranch where the rescue is near Seven Mile each year.  That means winters are a much needed break for volunteers to start anew in March for the St. Patty's Day Parade and go through December each year.  We are a fun bunch so bring your dogs and your family to come have some fun with us!

Since 1991!
