Who We Are

We are dedicated to rehabilitating and re-homing Dachshunds in need of a second chance at life and love. We rescue from pounds, shelters and owner turn-ins. Some have had a wonderful life but others have been abused, abandoned and/or neglected. We believe there is a home somewhere for every dog rescued, some just take a little longer to find. WE ONLY ADOPT TO RESIDENTS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS. Most dogs spend at least a little time in foster care to evaluate their temperaments, likes and dislikes of a home setting. This is a vital component to a good, permanent home placement. Foster homes provide good nutrition and an understanding lap to prepare our Dachshunds for life in a world where fear, abuse and starvation are non-existent for the rescued dog. The adoption fee is to help cover the costs of rescue and vetting of each dog. If you are interested in adoption, please visit our website, and fill out an adoption application at www.houstondachshundrescue.org . Remember: UNTIL THERE ARE NONE, RESCUE ONE!!!

Adopting a friend

Please contact us to fill out an online application. We carefully screen each and every new adopting parent(s). WE ONLY ADOPT TO RESIDENTS OF THE STATE OF TEXAS. We require that you fill out and return a completed application, and then a committee of rescue members meets to accept the application. Once the application is accepted, then we schedule with you a home visit to discuss your needs. After this is complete and accepted, we then require an adoption contract be signed prior to the placement of any dachshund. Each dachshund is vetted, and spayed/neutered before going to its new home. We require an adoption fee of $150-$250 to offset the costs of the veterinary care for each of the dachshunds that comes into our organization. We do however reduce the fee for special circumstances, please visit with an adoption counselor regarding this part of our program. Please contact us to discuss this option. Thank you for your interest in our organization, we look forward to working with you in our extended dachshund family.
