Be a Volunteer

Blue in a Bonnet
Blue says “Wear a hat at Wienerfest! It’s always a sunny day.”

Wienerfest is a fun family event that celebrates the breed that we all love – Dachshunds!

It promotes responsible dog ownership and builds people’s awareness of pet rescue. Wienerfest is Southwestern Ontario’s largest dog festival and Canada’s largest breed specific (Dachshund)! Last year alone, we had 6,000 visitors!  We will be hosting our festival at the Embro / West Zorra Community Centre, Embro, Ontario (Click here for a MAP), rain or shine on Saturday, June 23rd, 2018 from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm.
