We are an entirely volunteer based 501(c)(3) organization whose sole purpose is to bring the breed we love, Dachshunds, together with loving forever families. We are able to rescue and re-home dogs entirely through our foster network. Won't you consider Adopting , Fostering , Donating , or Volunteering so we can save as many of these amazing animals as possible.    

MEET BELLE PATRIOT

In July sweet Belle Patriot came to DRoH from Montgomery County Animal Shelter.  It was suspected she was a dog watched after by a homeless woman, but she was missing so many necessities.  She had severe dental disease in addition to having a skin infection and flea dermatitis.  Sadly, she wasn’t healthy enough for a dental procedure and anesthesia,  so DRoH  sent her home with a wonderful foster family who gave her quality food and love.  Belle continued to have a constant runny nose that came from congestion and sneezing. By the end of July, it was determined she would benefit greatly from a dental procedure and since she had gained enough weight, the clinic felt she was healthy enough for the risk.  At 15 years old, she had 2 fistulas repaired and her remaining teeth pulled.  Now, her nasal discharge has stopped and she’s happy, bright,  perky and alert. 

If pictures are worth a thousand words, then the above pictures are worth millions.  Belle is a happy girl thanks to Shelter Employees, Veterinarians, Volunteers, Transporters, Foster Parents and Donors who cared enough to give her a chance.  Her care cost over $2000, but looking at the results, it was worth so much more.

Belle is still looking for that special family to call her own.  If you have a spot in your home, there will be no heart more grateful than hers.


ATTENTION ALL POTENTIAL ADOPTERS - THE STATE OF TEXAS HAS NOTIFIED ALL RESCUE GROUPS OF THE FOLLOWING

Animal rescue groups and nonprofit animal shelters have different sales tax responsibilities. While both may be exempt entities and exempt from paying sales tax on their purchases, they generally must collect sales tax on their sales. However, the Texas Tax Code specifically exempts nonprofit animal shelters from collecting sales tax on their animal adoption fees (see  Tax Code Section 151.343, Animal Sold By Nonprofit Animal Shelters ). An animal rescue group is generally required to collect sales tax on any sales and animal adoption fees.

Our adoption fees with tax are:

For a pup under 1 year = $300 plus $24.75 tax 

Dogs 1-9 years of age = $250 plus $20.63

Seniors (10+ years) = $150 plus $12.38
