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

Lost CTDR Foster Dog

Reduced Suggested Adoption Fees

Home For The Holidays

CTDR's yearly Home for the Holidays begins on December 1 and runs for the month of December. All adoption fees, except for puppies under a year old, are discounted by $50.00!

Bonded Pairs

CTDR has several 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:

Lola is very new Rescue as she was surrendered by her family as they could no longer care for her.  She is a beautiful chocolate brown longhair and is up to date on all of her vaccines.  She is a little wobbly in her back legs so she is on strict crate rest along with a medication regimen. If you would like to have Lola join your family, please complete an application at ctdr.org.    
  Lolly Pop
Miss Lolly Pop was found as a stray in North Texas and was taken to a rural shelter in hopes her owners would come forward.  After being there for several days and no one coming to look for her, CTDR was contacted and we knew right away we could not let her stay in the shelter another day.  Looly Pop has received her vaccines and with a little more vetting she will be ready for a forever home in which to live out her golden years.  If interested in giving Lolly Pop her forever ho...read more about Lolly Pop
