Houston Texas Dachshund Rescue

Dachshund Rescue of Houston has one sole purpose and that is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home Dachshunds in need of a second chance at life and love. They rescue purebred Dachshunds from pounds and shelters. Some have had a wonderful life but were abandoned by their only family at a shelter for no reason, while others have been abused, abandoned, neglected or starved of food and human affection their entire life. They believe there is a home somewhere for every Dachshund rescued, some just take a little longer to find.

How They Do It
All Dachshunds that come to the Dachshund Rescue of Houston will be seen by a veterinarian and have the following procedures completed to ensure they are in good health:

* Spayed or Neutered
* Heart worm check and treatment if needed
* Updated on vaccines: Rabies, Bordetella, Distemper, Parvo, Parainfluenza, Leptospirois, Corona
* Fecal Check
* Parasites eradicated
* Dental cleaning and extractions if necessary
* Any long-term or potential problematic conditions identified

All doxies spend some time in foster care to evaluate their temperaments and likes/dislikes of a home setting. This is an important component to good, permanent home placement. Foster homes provide good nutrition and understanding. This prepares our Dachshunds for life in a world where fear, abuse and starvation don't exist.

After the dogs are healthy, they are posted as "available for adoption" on their website with a picture and profile. If you are interested in adopting a dachshund, you can read about their adoption procedures.

Who They Are
They are a small group of doxie lovers that all happen to call Houston "Home". They love the dachshund breed and can't bear to think of any dachshunds suffering. They have many foster parents and volunteers. If you would like to help, please consider being a foster parent or volunteer.
