The Adoption Process

 Find your new best friend in a few simple steps

Apply to Adopt

Please take a look at our available adoptable dogs. If you’re interested in adopting one of them, please download and complete an adoption application.

Home Check

Once we have received your adoption application, we will arrange for one of our amazing volunteers to contact you to arrange a suitable date and time for your home visit.

Meet the Pup

Once your home has been checked and approved you will have an opportunity to meet the pup you are interested in adopting (by appointment only).

Welcome Home

When the day finally arrives for your new furry family member to come home and meet his/her new family, this is a super exciting day for you and your family. Remember to give your pup some time to adapt to his new surroundings.

Adopting a Dachshund

Our adoption fee is R1,500.00 per dog. In the case of a bonded pair the adoption fee is R2250.00.  The adoption fee for a puppy up to the age of 6 months is R2,500.00 and the relevant puppy contract would apply.  The adoption fee in all cases is inclusive of sterilization, first vaccination and microchip.

Fostering a Dachshund

While the dogs that have been surrendered to us wait for their right forever homes, they are kept in foster care. These foster homes offer our Dachshunds valuable family love and afford us the time it takes to network and find that quality match and perfect adoption. 

Frosty Face Foster Program

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 can help with all that.

Surrendering a Dachshund

We take in Dachshunds, Dachshund crosses and other small breed dogs that are in need of a new home and place them temporarily with suitable foster families. This ensures that our foster dogs receive personal love and attention until they are placed in a permanent home. If you need to surrender your Dachshund, Dachshund cross or other small breed to Cape Dachshund Rescue, please click on the link below. 

Don’t just take our word for it, hear from our clients.
