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.    

Ani Maya

Ani Maya was found this in a crate, rolled in blankets, and thrown in a ditch. She spent days in severe pain before DRoH was contacted. Humans failed this girl. DRoH and an entire team jumped to her rescue. She was rushed to the emergency vet clinic and diagnosed with blunt force trauma and a broken bone. At the very least, Ani will require surgery.   

Ani has already required over $2000 worth of vet bills and we still have surgery costs ahead of us. Please make a difference for this Rescue pup and donate today. No amount is too small.

UPDATE - 7/8/21

Ani thought it was time to give everyone an update.  She is doing quite well with her foster family (see her video on her profile page as she's helping with the gardening), but still longs for her forever home.  She faces one more surgery next week to examine the damage to her pelvis.  She believes that it will be all good news because she's getting around as if nothing ever happened.  Her femur surgery was successful, owing to her youth and the skills of her surgeon.
She is spunky, friendly and ready to take on the world! She is ready to meet a forever family and dreams of a July adoption.  She is healthy, happy and most importantly - fully repaired. She's starting to think that her injuries are holding her back, but she knows that someone out there believes in her and all the joy she can bring to life!

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
