Our Pet List


Thank you for considering a rescued Dachshund.

How to Adopt A Friend

If you would like to adopt one of our dogs, please visit our website to fill out an Adoption Application.

Our adoption fee is $250 per dog ($150 for seniors 10 and older). The adoption fee helps cover the cost of medical treatments incurred prior to adoption (i.e. examinations, spay or neuter, vaccinations, heartworm checks and preventative, heartworm treatment, dental work, etc). The adoption fee is not negotiable.

Who We Are

We are a small group of doxie lovers that all happen to call Houston home. We love the Dachshund breed and can't bear to think of any Dachshunds suffering.

Our Purpose

We have one sole purpose and that is to rescue, rehabilitate and find homes for Dachshunds in need of a second chance at life and love. We rescue both purebreds and mixes from pounds and shelters. Some have had a wonderful life but were dumped by their only family at a shelter for no reason at all, while others have been abused, abandoned, neglected and starved of food and human affection their entire lives. We believe there is a home for every dog rescued; some just take a little longer to find.

Our Dachshunds

All dogs that come to Dachshund Rescue of Houston are checked out by a veterinarian to ensure they are in good health, and any long-term or potential problematic conditions are identified. Our dogs are spayed or neutered, brought current on vaccinations, and treated for heartworms and other parasites if needed.

All dogs spend at least some time in foster care to evaluate their temperaments, likes and dislikes of a home setting. This is a vital component to a good, permanent home placement. Foster homes provide good nutrition and an understanding lap. This prepares our precious Dachshunds for life in a world where fear, abuse and starvation are non-existent.

After the dogs are healthy, they are posted as AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION on our website with a current profile and pictures.
