Wiener Nationals, 2003

Congratulations to Kathy Smith of Reno, NV. She was the winner of the Dachshund Necklace.

The Dachshund Rescue of San Diego apologies for not being able to fully set up and have a booth at the recent SDDC Hallo-Wiener Picnic. The tragic fires in San Diego during the weekend played a major role in our decision to not provide the booth and participate.

The raffle for the beautiful necklace donated by El Requa of Las Vegas has been changed from the Hallo-Wiener picnic to the Wiener Races on Nov 8.

The results of the drawing will be published on the DRSD website shortly after the drawing. The winner will be notified immediately if they are not present.

San Diego Fire Storm:

The Dachshund Rescue of San Diego extends it deepest condolences to all who have suffered the loss of homes and loved ones as a result of the horrific San Diego fire storm.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this tragedy and the scores of Fire fighters, police and volunteers that have worked around the clock to protect the unaffected areas and provide for our safety.
