Adoption Inquiries

We do not own or operate an animal shelter. All of our dogs are fostered in private homes in the greater Houston area. This is why we ask that you complete an Adoption Application prior to meeting any of our dogs. Please visit our "Adopt" page to learn more about the adoption process.

PLEASE NOTE: Because of our ongoing commitment to providing the best possible homes for our rescued Dachshunds, home visits are a crucial part of the adoption process. We prefer that you live in the greater Houston area, but if you don't, we will consider your application under certain circumstances. If you live more than 2 hours from Houston, you will need to provide photos of your home and yard (or be able to Skype with us), and you must be willing to travel to Houston to meet our dogs.



Shelter Dogs

We receive daily emails from shelters in the Greater Houston Area, including Galveston. If you have seen a shelter dog you'd like us to admit, please keep in mind we probably already know this dog is in need of rescue. Many factors go into our decision to admit a dog. These include the number of dogs (and their ages) already in our program, the number of dogs on our waiting list, foster space, and available funds. Even if you are willing to sponsor and/or foster a dog, there is no guarantee we will be able to admit them at this time.



Surrendering a Dachshund

If you need to surrender your own Dachshund or you have found an abandoned, abused or neglected Dachshund, please complete our Intake Request form.



Stray Dachshunds

If you have found a stray Dachshund who appears to be someone's pet, DO NOT complete our Intake Request form UNTIL AFTER you have done the following:

  • Call phone numbers listed on their tags
  • Have the dog scanned for a microchip (most vets will do this for free)
  • Post "Found" flyers around your neighborhood
  • Look around your neighborhood for "Lost" posters
  • Contact local animal shelters to ask if the dog has been reported missing



  • Ownership Claims

    If you believe we have your dog(s), please complete our Lost Pet Ownership Claim form.
