How You Can Help
If you or someone you know are looking to acquire a companion dachshund, please view our
list of available dachshunds. Information on how to go about adopting can be found in each dog's detailed listing, and in the Adopting A Friend section.
Even if you are not looking for a companion dachshund, you can still be one of our Guardian Angels. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, funded solely through gifts, donations and adoption fees and staffed entirely by volunteers. All donations are tax deductible. Every dollar received goes directly towards the care of our rescue dachshunds. Your support makes it possible for us to continue helping those dogs in need.
Donations may be sent to:
Dallas-Fort Worth Dachshund Rescue Foundation
P.O. Box 1892
Colleyville, TX 76034
Donations may also be made via Paypal:
Some companies have matching gift programs that allow individual donations to go even farther. Ask your employer if this type of program is available to you.
