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.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED DRoH during this event.

As cities across the world are responding to the Coronavirus outbreak, it is important that Dachshund Rescue of Houston responds with our own precautions to ensure the safety of our community of rescue supporters.

Effective immediately the following precautions are in place:

DRoH SOCIAL EVENTS

  • DRoH will not have any public events until further notice.

APPLICATION HOME VISIT

  • ALL home visits will be completed via Facetime or via a web hosted service where a visual home visit and discussion can be implemented.

ADOPTION MEET & GREET

  • The initial meet and greet will be conducted via Facetime or via a web hosted service so the potential adopter can get to know the foster dog.
  • The adoption contract will be discussed during the virtual meet and greet, and a copy of the contract will be sent to the potential adopter via email.
  • Dogs will be held in foster care until it is deemed safe to deliver the dog to the adopter.  

DOG PLACEMENT

  • The foster parent will bathe the dog prior to delivery. 
  • Immediately prior to delivery, the dog will be wiped down with an anti-bacterial wipe.
  • The Foster parent and potential adopter will meet at an agreed upon outside location to safely deliver the adoptee to his/her new parent.

INTAKE PROCEDURES

  • All current DRoH Intake safety procedures will stand and must be followed.  (Transporters will be sent those procedures directly.)

We thank you for your understanding, patience and kindness during this challenging time.


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

How You Can Help


DROH is in need of Sponsors, Volunteers, and Fosters. Through your generosity we are able to rescue so many wonderful pups. You can volunteer time or services at an event, sponsor a pup through their journey to mental and physical well-being, or even foster a pup to give someone a temporary home while they search for their forever family.
