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 visitation will follow once the State mandated orders are lifted.
  • OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS — All out-of-state adoptions are suspended

Urgent Request for Donations

CTDR took in this gorgeous gal Lucy 3, she was surrendered to the rescue, the team was told she was able to walk but sadly couldn't. CTDR team rushed her into back surgery late Tuesday. Her prognosis is very good with walking again. She will be kept at the hospital through the weekend, we are so thankful she has the chance to wiggle around! Lucy3 vet bill was $4542, we need donations to help cover we would be so appreciative.

Hello, everyone! As you know CTDR took in this petite little girl named Tiny on the 19th of August. As you can see in the picture, her tongue hangs out the side of her mouth due to not having any teeth in which to rest the tongue on. Tiny was seen by a Specialty Vet Clinic in the DFW area who said she will need all of her remaining teeth extracted and will need bone grafts done so her tongue will stay in her mouth. She also has two very serious Oral Nasal Fistulas, which are opening at the top of her mouth. Food can get stuck in there and cause a lot of complications so they must also be resolved. Her regular vet did not feel she could close up these fistulas and that is why she was referred to a specialist.

The estimate for all of this including a full Blood workup, come to right at $3850.00. All donation, no matter the amount would be so welcome that CTDR can help Tiny. Donations can be made through Facebook, Pay Pal at ctdr.org or payments can be mailed to: CTDR 7544 FM 1960 Rd. East #71, Humble Texas 77346

Please share with family and friends!

Bandit is very obedient, knows “sit” and “stay”, he is very treat motivated. He is a sweet and loving dog, and loves nothing more than to be in the room with his people. He spends most of his days sleeping in one of the beds or on a couch, he will follow us around and settle in whichever room we’re in. He’s a stereotypical dachshund in that he loves the sunshine, and will lay outside on the patio soaking up the rays. Bandit likes belly rubs and can be handled,...read more about Bandit
