 Foster Parents Needed Desperately!!

DDRTX is in desperate need of foster homes! We try to save as many dachshunds from unsafe situations as we possibly can. Unfortunately, we do not have foster homes to house all the dogs in need. Foster placements can range anywhere from a few hours to a few months, and we are willing to work with your scheduling needs. All foster dogs are spayed, neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm free, on preventative, parasite free and temperament tested. If you are thinking about becoming a foster parent, watch the video below to learn more!

If you would like to become a foster parent, please contact us at

If you are unable to foster at this time, DDRTX can still use your help! We always need people to pull dogs from kill shelters, transport dogs to vet visits, foster homes, and to their forever homes. If you have a talent, gift or service to offer, we can find a way for you to help. Simply email us at
