A completed adoption application is required, including the name
and number of your current veterinarian and landlord, if applicable.
We will contact your current vet, landlord and personal references,
if needed. A home visit will also be required. Do
not apply for a dog to give as a gift or to use as a hunting dog.
CTDR does not adopt to homes where a pet has been abandoned in the
past, where pets have not been kept up-to-date on their vaccinations
and heartworm prevention, or where there are currently unsterilized
adult dogs or cats in the home.
We welcome those applicants who reside outside of the State of Texas.
However, with the exception of those states immediately surrounding
Texas, we do ask that you either fly or drive down to meet and adopt
your new dog. If you agree to this policy, please proceed with the
Homes with fenced yards are strongly preferred, but exceptions are
made based on the size, age, and activity level of the dog. We do
accept applicants that live in apartments or other rental situations,
as long as the landlord approves of the adoption. We require a landlord
reference for all renters.
About CTDR Dogs
All dogs that come through Central Texas Dachshund Rescue have been
fully vetted before adoption. This includes a health exam by a veterinarian,
the vaccinations appropriate for its age, and a heartworm test and
preventative. All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption.
We also provide dental treatment or other surgical treatments as
necessary. Due to our thorough adoption process, it does take a
little time and effort to adopt from CTDR and because our rescues
are in foster homes throughout Texas, it takes some coordination
to allow you to meet one of our dogs, but the wait is well worth
Our adoption fee is $250 per
dog or $150 for senior dogs (over 10 years of age). .
