2011 club membership
dues are only $20 per family! You get:
FYI: This is a very informal club meetings now and then and no club
officers. We are a doggy social club only . We meet infrequently as we voted to use the club money towards family
fun events like parades, booths at pet fests, BBQs at the dog rescue, etc. We will stay that way until we vote as a
club to have officers. Otherwise fun events are planned by the Director of Dachshund Rescue NW and everyone shows up
for four and two footed fun. Watch this site on page two for any upcoming events. I will try to send reminder
emails with about two weeks notice to your email for all upcoming events to attend with your dogs and family. If you
want more notice please check the event page on this site, page two at any time.
1. If you are looking to adopt a new doggy let me know you have been a part of this dog club so you get first choice
on any of our rescued dogs. We adopt out an average of 65 dogs a year and love placing them with folks who already know
this breed well. You can check out our web site at any time for our current dogs needing homes www.drnw.petfinder.org
Wiener Walks in the Park a couple times a summer. We just meet and go for a walk as a group. These are always
planned weather permitting so watch page two of this web site for details.
3. Fun photos taken at all our fun events and posted on this site.
4. Occasional e-mails complete with updates and info about recent and upcoming events. (We
want to avoid paying postage if possible so we keep in touch via email to members.)
5. Club organization of special events like the St. Patty's Day
Parade in Spokane with email notification of where and when to attend with your dog. (In 2012 we want 100 Wieners on
Parade so please tell your friends and neighbors to join our dog club. Non-club members can walk as well so tell your
wiener buds to join us.) This is the only parade we are doing each year now.
6. Discounts for pet photos from
Dragoon Studios. Let them know you are a club member and receive 20% off of all your pet, family and equine
portraits. www.dragoonstudios.net Check out the site for portfolio. All dog club photos on this
site are taken by Dragoon Studios.
7. Volunteer opportunities to help socialize dogs from the rescue at the Wiener Ranch and bring your dogs too.
8. Annual Potluck in April and several times throughout the summer months (dates subject to change
so watch page two of this web site for event updat) for fun and hot dogs. In April we are calling it the "Twenty
Years of Recycling the Used Wieners Party!" We started April 11, 1991 and parties at the farm always includes you,
your family and your dogs.
9. Costume Contests at area pet stores for
Halloween if the club decides to go. In 2010 we met at a horse event for our annual costume party. (The Xmas Party
was fun but the weather can be so extreme in Christmas so as a club we voted to not be traveling for that any longer when
the month is so darn busy with friends and family.)
10. In September there is Responsible Dog
Ownership Day at ValleyFest in the Spokane Valley. We try to have a booth there each year to show off dogs needing new
homes. This is also weather permitting. If raining then we do not go.
So let's have fun with our dog buddies. Join us! Please
email the info and pay your membership dues to the address given below. Even if you do not like attending club events
your $20 a year helps us with the rescued dogs. Thanks in advance.
