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.

Reduced Suggested Adoption Fees

Bonded Pairs

CTDR has bonded pair dachshunds that need forever homes. We have dropped the adoption fees for these pairs so that they can find their forever homes together. 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:

Tom and Jerry


Greta and Dexter


Boone and Tripp

Cici is a new arrival to CTDR after being surrendered back to the very shelter she was adopted from a few months later because adopters thought she was ill.  After an examination by the vet, Cici tested positive for those nasty heartworms and will have to go through heartworm treatment before being adopted.  She is current on all of her vaccinations and has completed all of her vetting and right now she needs a foster home to be able to go through heartworm treatment and then will ...read more about Cici
Dash is new to CTDR after being surrendered to Rescue as his family was moving and he was not able to make the move.  He is a gorgeous black/white piebald and is fully vetted and now is ready for his forever home.  Dash would do better in a home without young children and he would also love being an only dog.  If interested in this handsome boy, please complete an application at www.ctdr.org.
