Sponsor a DogDo you have your own dogs or aren’t in the position to adopt right now but would still love to help? Help us continue to save more dogs with your sponsorship donation today.
Do you have room in your heart and home for a homeless Dachshund? We need more foster homes to provide a loving, stable environment for dachshunds in need. DDRTX takes care of the vet bills and the foster provides room, food, and a family home for the needy dog until the dog is adopted to a carefully screened adoptive home. Foster homes pass the same requirements as our adopters, so fill out a Foster application today. For more information contact email@example.com

Featured Foster Dog
Name: Hercules Zeus
Age: 2 1/2 years old (est)
This is Hercules Zeus. He is a 2 year old dachshund/chihuahua (chiweenie) mix. He was living in a home with other dogs and he was good with them. The transporter said he did well on a leash. She said Hercules is a sweetheart. He seemed a little nervous in the car but when he went into her home, he did great with her senior dog and a visiting dog. She said he is a lap dog and gives kisses and loves tummy rubs.

What is DDRTX?
Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is an all-volunteer group in the heart of Texas that is dedicated to the health, welfare, and happiness of our dachshund friends. We are based in Central and South Central Texas and have volunteers in many parts of Texas. We are a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. As such, we must rely heavily on donations and contributions, which are a necessity in order to continue to be able to pay the costs of veterinary care and other necessary expenses for each of our dachshunds. Diamond Dachshund has rescued, rehabilitated and placed from 100 to 200 dachshunds each year since our incorporation in 2003. We strive to find the right home for each dog's individual personality and needs so that the placement is permanent and both the dogs and the families who adopt them are equally happy.
