Dallas Texas Dachshund Lovers Rescue

Dachshund Lovers of Texas is a small group of people who have a lifetime of devotion to dachshunds, as well as years of combined experience in animal rescue. They are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization - they're in it for the doxies, not the money!

Dachshund Lovers of Texas is strongly in support of spaying and neutering pets to cut down on the number of Dachshunds who have to be euthanized. All their adoptable doxies are spayed or neutered and they require the same of other pets in the adopter's household.

They are a no-kill rescue program. Once Dachshunds are in their program, they are safe in their foster homes until they find an appropriate forever home. They do not euthanize the dachshunds to make room or because they have been in the program a long time awaiting adoption.

Their organization is completely foster-based. All Dachshunds stay in foster homes alongside their own personal pets. That way they can work with them on social skills and good manners, see how they interact with both people and other dogs, and just generally get a good idea of their temperament. They feel that a foster-based rescue program offers a big advantage when it comes to really knowing the dogs, and predicting where they can most successfully be placed into a forever home.

Because they are foster-based, there is no shelter. They don't have regular hours and they don't have a central location to come and visit. If you are interested in an adoptable dachshund, you will need to contact them to make arrangements.

They require an application for adoption to be submitted prior to meeting. The purpose of the application process is to learn more about your needs so that any placement they make is likely to work out well for everyone. After all, not all the dogs get along well with other dogs, young children and so on. By applying first, you won't invest time and effort on an adoptable dog that wouldn't work out for your needs.

Dachshund Lovers of Texas also believes that those with special needs and senior citizens (people as well as dogs) benefit from a healthy, loving relationship between the owner and pet. They strive to accommodate a diversity of needs and ages in their pets as well as in those with whom they are placed.
