Helping Homeless pets and celebrating all that is dachshund!

Join us online, at our Facebook page, for a year-long celebration of Wienerfest for 2020.

What is Wienerfest Home County Festival?

Wienerfest Home County Festival is Canada’s largest breed specific event, focused on Dachshunds. In 2017, over 6,000 people and 1,000 dogs attended.

It’s a free family and dog-friendly year-long event that provide funding for pet rescue and raises awareness for the plight of abandoned and abused animals in Canada.

There will be many fun events, such as costume contests.

Over 100 exhibitors, both local and from across North America will have booths, selling products such as animal dietary products, clothing, leashes, pet services, and personal handicrafts. Numerous local and nationally recognized businesses, who are sponsors, will also attend.

A Charity Event

Wienerfest Home County Festiva operates under the umbrella of Tiny Paws Dog Rescue, a registered Canadian Charity (Business Number 82942 3920 RR0001).

Tiny Paws Dog Rescue works with shelters, pounds, other rescues, and private individuals to save dogs that might otherwise be euthanized and places those dogs into our private foster homes. We provide standard veterinary care and other needed medical treatment, work on training issues and through our adoption screening process, find new forever homes for the dogs in our care. We also educate the public about the important reasons to spay/neuter pets, the deplorable conditions found in puppy mills, the sources of pet store dogs and the need to adequately care for and train the family pet.

An estimated two million dogs enter Canadian shelters and rescue organizations each year: close to one million are euthanized. We strive hard, every day, every week to reduce this number.
