Florida Wiener Dog Derby

 ​"Let's Go Racing"

The Florida Wiener Dog Derby is an all-volunteer, nonprofit, fundraising and educational organization that promotes rescue, adoption and responsible canine ownership with fun, family oriented events within the State of Florida.

 The Florida Wiener Dog Derby is Currently Accepting Sponsorships, Donations & Advertising for our 2020/2021 Race Circuit Year

The Florida Wiener Dog Derby, Inc, is a Florida event based all-volunteer 501C3 fundraiser for local dachshund and animal rescue. In a calendar year, we host at least ten different competition events within the state of Florida, that raise money for designated nonprofits. With each event, we average at least 15,000 spectators and we host about 100-500 registered dogs to compete in different talent and obedience based contests, not to mention the main event, which are the races.

In 2020 FWDD is celebrating 11 years of family fun and raising money for local guest rescues/charities. Our competition entry fees are only a small portion of our fundraising and cover our core operating costs. Our greatest ability to fund raise comes from our sponsorship donations from corporations and companies. During most of our events, we host silent auctions and/or raffles. We also like to award our winning contestants with prize baskets.

There are many ways a corporation could benefit from any amount of contribution. We have several different levels to participate with the Florida Wiener Dog Derby. In-Kind Donations are welcome and an important part of ouroverall event fundraising.

We are diligently working to organize and prepare for this year’s 11th annual event being held Saturday May 2, 2020 at Curtis Hixon Park in conjunction with Riverfest. This event, like all our past and future events, promises to be a day to remember for our participants, pet parents, rescues and event guests. 

On behalf of all of us at the Florida Wiener Dog Derby, we would like to thank you for taking the time to consider working with us.  We are very excited about the opportunity to work with you.
