Dachshund Lovers of Texas is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit, all volunteer, foster based, no-kill rescue group for dachshunds. We are dedicated to the belief that helping pets helps people, and that any life is too precious to throw away when a bit of love can save it!
We are a foster-based, no-kill rescue program located in Dallas, Texas. Once the dogs are in our program, they are safe in their foster homes until they find an appropriate forever home.
Our adoption process begins with completing an Adoption Application. Our volunteers will review this as quickly as possible, schedule a phone interview and then proceed to a home visit. Once those are complete we will set up a time & place to meet the dog of interest. There is no fee or obligation to apply. The application information, combined with our knowledge of each of our dogs, allows us to help the applicant select a dog that best fits their household with an appropriately tempermented dachshund. Our dogs are fully vetted, including spay/neuter and dentals if needed, before being placed into a forever home. Our adoption fees allow us to cover the cost of this vetting.

Dachshund Lovers of Texas also believes that those with special needs and senior citizens (people as well as dogs) benefit from a healthy, loving relationship between the owner and pet. We strive to accommodate a diversity of needs and ages in our pets as well as in those with whom they are placed.
