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.  


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

DRoH's 3 year old Piebald who was suffering from a lung infection due to heartworms

We are happy to announce that after spending 3 days in ICU, Robbie went home to continue his recovery from a lung infection.  For his own sake, Robbie had to be confined and was not allowed to run or play.  Tough love is always the most difficult, but thanks to his foster family Robbie recovered enough so he could withstand his next health challenge, heartworm treatment. Robbie has managed through his first treatment and must stay confined for another month and a half.  Please continue to offer warm thoughts and prayers as he endures two additional treatments on his road to recovery.  Many thanks to all of Robbie's supporters who offered both well wishes and financial assistance.  Robbie owes his life to you!

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.
