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

You can donate to Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas in honor of someone else! It could be for a birthday, anniversary, memorial or any occasion. We will send a customized gift card to your special someone. Your donation will help take care of our beloved doxies!
During the coronavirus pandemic, dachshund rescue can't stop...they still need us as much as any other time and we pledge to be there for them.
During this time, DDRTX adopted out many dogs to wonderful families. But we also took in many injured doxies. Some are suffering from extensive medical issues.
Now is a great time to give back and help our organization so we can continue to save lives and make families feel whole during this difficult time.

Our volunteers have worked incredibly hard this year to bring in more dachshunds in need of our help; while coping with all of the changes brought about by the pandemic.
It is at this time of the year, that we like to ensure our volunteers are able to spend more time with family and friends.
In light of this, DDRTX will stop processing applications received after Nov 30th. This will give us time to complete the processing of all applications previously submitted before we take a break from our normal routine on Dec. 18th.
Applications will still be accepted but will not be reviewed until Jan 5th 2021.
We, thank all of you for helping us find homes for so many dachshunds this year and wish all of you a safe and joyous holiday season.
Seniors are the Best!
To celebrate our seniors, DDRTX will offer our Annual November Senior Adoption Special
All adoption fees for Seniors (10 yrs and above) are

Featured Foster Dog
Name: Dee Dee
Age: 12 years (est)
Dee Dee is a spunky little senior girl. She came from a loving home. She is housebroken, and knows how to use a doggie door. Dee Dee was well taken care of, and loved. She is sweet, good with other dogs and kids. She seems to like everyone. She loves to walk and she has a pretty good pace at it. She likes to dance for you when she wants to eat. She will do this cute little bark at you when she wants you to pick her up and snuggle with her on the couch. Dee Dee does well in a car and even has her own car seat. She is a girl that knows what she wants and needs and will let you know in her own way.
Dee Dee is showing us more and more about her but I can tell you she is a great little dog with a great personality. If you want an older dog that has a lot of sweetness and personality, she is the dog for you!

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.
