Calling All Animal Lovers: Help Us Save Lives - Become a Dachshund Foster!

Be a Foster

We are in desperate need of dedicated foster homes to provide temporary love and care for rescued Dachshunds until they find their forever homes. As you may know, we do not use a shelter, but rather our dachshunds are in the loving care of a foster until their forever family is matched. Without new foster homes joining our network, we may be forced to freeze intake for new dogs, leaving countless precious lives at risk.

Fostering a Dachshund is a profoundly rewarding experience that allows you to witness the transformative power of love firsthand. As a foster parent, you provide a safe and loving home environment for a Dachshund in need. Your role is crucial in preparing these pups for their forever homes. By opening your heart and home, you help them regain trust, rebuild confidence, and experience the love they deserve. If you have room in your heart and home to foster a rescued Dachshund, we urge you to take this opportunity to change a life. Your compassion can be the lifeline for these dogs in need.

How Do I Start?
If you feel you're ready to foster a Dachshund, fill out our FOSTER FORM.

The adoption fee for a bonded pair will be $350; the normal fee would be $500. A senior bonded pair will be only $250 total. These bonded pairs are adoptable:

Let's give a big CTDR welcome to sweet Reecie.  Reecie was surrendered to CTDR after her owner could no longer care for her.  Reecie's human dad passed away very suddenly and her human mom went back to work and could not care for her.  CTDR was honored to be asked to help find Reecie her forever home.  Reecie had a back injury a couple of years ago and while on crate rest, she decided to gnaw off her back legs.  Reecie is an active little girl as she has a...read more about Reecie
