My story

Heartworm Prevention given on the 16th of each month

UPDATE:   Penny is doing very well in her foster and has already lost 2 lbs.  She is starting to get her girlish figure back.  She loves short walks and snuggling on the couch with you. Penny also knows how to use the doggy door and would benefit in a home with one. Penny would prefer to sleep in the human bed and hates sleeping in her crate at night.  She gets along fine with the other dog in the foster home who is larger than her and she has done well with other dogs she has met.  She has met some children and is great with kids who are gentle with her.  She is the perfect guard dog and will bark when she hears the doorbell and hears your phone ringing.
 

Sweet Penny is a new arrival to CTDR after having been surrendered by her owner due to her owner moving into an Assisted Living Center.  Penny is a beautiful senior girl, who will need to go on a diet once she gets into a foster home.  She has had most of her vetting done and now just need a foster and a forever home in which to live out the rest of her golden years..  If interested in this sweet girl, please complete an application at ctdr.org.

Additional adoption info

Adoption Fee:

On average, we spend $296 in vet expenses on each dog that we take in. To help us cover those expenses, on November 1, 2004 our adoption fee will increase to $250, and puppies under 1 year of age will be $300.



1.) Complete our online ADOPTION APPLICATION at (www.ctdr.org/phpform/forms/application.html) and list the names of all the dogs you're interested in. If you don't currently see a dog that matches your family, please tell us more about what you're looking for. We have new dogs weekly and will contact you if a dog comes in that meets your requirements. Don't forget to list the name and number of your current veterinarian and landlord, if applicable! We will contact your current vet, landlord and personal references, if needed.

2.) After we receive your application, we'll contact you to discuss the specifics of what you're looking for. We will try to contact you within 3-7 days, but we are all volunteers and have full time jobs, so be patient with us!

3.) Once we have completed all reference checks, we will schedule a home visit where someone from our organization will come to your home and meet you and your family and any pets you currently have.

4.) Finally, we will schedule a time when your family and pet(s) can meet your desired rescue dachshund. If a long transport is involved, we ask the potential adopter to arrange the transportation of the dog.

Go meet their pets

Unlike a shelter or humane society, our dogs are not in one central location, but spread throughout many foster homes across the state. We realize that this makes it difficult to 'come meet our dogs,' but we believe the one-on-one care our dachshunds receive is well worth the inconvenience.



We will work with you to schedule a meet and greet with one or more of our dogs that are determined to be a good match for you and your family.

More about this rescue

Central Texas Dachshund Rescue is a volunteer organization whose main purpose is to rescue homeless Dachshunds and find them permanent, loving homes. We began rescuing Dachshunds in September of 2000 and our membership has grown yearly. In September of 2001 we incorporated and we received 501(c)3 status in February 2003. And, despite our name, we are no longer only in Central Texas, but have members and volunteers throughout the state of Texas and beyond.



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 before being adopted. Dogs too young to be spay or neutered are adopted under the agreement that they will be spayed or neutered at the appropriate time. We also provide dental treatment or other surgical treatments as necessary. The average cost of vetting our dogs is in the hundreds of dollars.



Our network of foster families provide safe and secure temporary homes, good nutrition, medical care, and socialization skills for our fosters. We always welcome new volunteers so if you would like to find out more about how you can help CTDR, please visit our website at: www.ctdr.org
