Pennsylvania residents looking for a dachshund to adopt can choose from nine rescue shelters around the state as of July 2015, according to RescueShelter.com. These include Pennsylvania Dachshund Rescue, Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue and Dachshund Rescue of Bucks County.
Some rescues, such as Dachshund Rescue of Bucks County, place relinquished dogs in foster care rather than housing them in a shelter. It is common for rescues to require an application to be filled out by potential adopters. The application is used to match the adopters to the dogs best suited to their lifestyles and family situations.
The cost to rescue a dachshund in Pennsylvania can vary depending on the rescue group, the length of time the dog has been in rescue and the age of the dog. Most rescues charge less for senior dogs age seven and older. Puppies can cost as much as $500 to adopt, as of July 2015.
