Join us for Amplify Austin on March 6th – March 7th and embrace the Roaring for Rescue theme!
Amplify Austin Day is the biggest giving event in Central Texas. For 24-hours, residents across our seven-county region are invited to participate by giving back to the local nonprofits that do so much good for our community! Inspired by the shared characteristics of Chinese dragons and dachshunds, encompassing traits such as strength, courage, and resilience, this source of inspiration comes to life.
We invite you to make Central Texas Dachshund Rescue (CTDR) your chosen charity during these 24 hours of giving. Your support can make a significant impact on the lives of dachshunds in need.
Calling All Animal Lovers: Help Us Save Lives - Become a Dachshund 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.

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:
