As cities across the world are responding to the Coronavirus outbreak, it is important that Central Texas Dachshund Rescue responds with our own precautions to ensure the safety of our community of rescue supporters. Effective immediately the following precautions are in place:
CTDR SOCIAL and Adoption Events • CTDR will not have any public events until further notice.
APPLICATION HOME VISIT • ALL home visits will be completed via Facetime, SKYPE or via a web hosted service where a visual home visit and discussion can be implemented. A follow up on site visit will follow once the State mandated orders are lifted.

We need your help!

On Friday February 21, 2020 CTDR was received an emergency request to take in a young dachshund who had been found in a yard, crying in pain. The finder said it appeared that the dog had been attacked by a bigger dog and they put the dog in a box and went to the shelter. After being seen by the shelter vet, it was recommended that Rescue be contacted or the dog would have to be put to sleep. CTDR immediately jumped into action and arranged for a transport to the clinic that CTDR uses. After being examined by a CTDR vet, it was determined that he had some severe injuries and that his left leg would have to be amputated. He had this amputation on Monday February 24th, 2020. The cost of this along with his neuter and the care he has received so far will run about $2600.00. Any donation, no matter the amount will be so greatly appreciated. CTDR has named this little guy Hercules As he is a determined little guy and has the will to live. Please help CTDR help Hercules.

Bonded Pairs

Sawyer and his brother Levi were given up by their long-time owners because their family situation had changed and they could no longer provide a home for them.  CTDR rescued these boys from the North Texas area and transported them to Austin for veterinary care.  They are ready for adoption and need a loving, forever home where they can continue being the happy dogs that they are.Sawyer and Levi are happy, congenial dogs, much interested in their environment and the people around the...read more about Sawyer
He is very sweet with me, he would like to always be with me unless he is distracted by squirrels. He likes to be in your lap. He is pretty snuggly, and likes to give kisses. He likes to play with toys. I got him his own little stuffed fox and I will ask him- "where is your fox?" and he will go run and get it. He likes squeaky toys. It looks like he and my dog might be on the verge of playing. They have had a few moments. I think he likes the company of other dogs. I think he would be fine as an...read more about MacArthur
