Welcome to Happy Tails Dachshund Rescue (HTDR)!

​Our Mission:

Happy Tails Dachshund Rescue is a 501c3, non-profit organization consisting of dedicated rescue volunteers who love the Dachshund dog breed. Our mission is to save as many Doxies from euthanasia, abuse, or abandonment and to adopt them into as many loving, forever homes. We also strive to promote and encourage the responsible care of pets especially spaying, neutering and vaccination of all pets.

Adoption Events

PLEASE READ:  In cooperation with Petsmart Charities, adoption events have been suspended until further notice.  We will still be taking applications and doing meet and greets with approved families by private appointment.  Posted 3/22/2020

HTDR regularly hosts adoption events usually twice a month at the Petsmart located in Chandler, Arizona on Germann Road.


Please stop by to meet and greet our dogs that are available for adoption.  Only adopters that have had their references checked and home visits completed prior to the adoption events may expect to take their new family member home from an adoption event.

Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to get the latest updates on adoption events!


Thank You To Our Partners & Sponsors!
