Mission

DREAM Dachshund Rescue, Education & Adoption Mission is a Houston-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned Dachshunds and finding new homes for Dachshunds whose owners can no longer care for them. Our committed volunteers, working closely with local veterinarians, provide our Dachshunds with quality medical care and loving foster homes until they are adopted into carefully screened, permanent homes. We also serve as a resource to our community, providing information on responsible pet ownership, the importance of spay/neuter, annual vaccinations, heartworm prevention, positive behavior training, exercise, and good nutrition.

Senior Sanctuary

Many of our senior Dachshunds aren't as easy to adopt out due to their age and/or chronic illness. Our Senior Sanctuary Program allows people to foster a senior dog without the worry of incurring any medical expenses.

Population(s) Served

Approved senior applicants (65+ years) can adopt a senior DREAM Dachshund (10+ years) at a reduced adoption fee of only $75.00.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Houston area shelters are constantly over capacity. Our goal is not only to rescue and re-home unwanted dogs both before and after they are turned into shelters, but to educate people on the importance of spaying/neutering their pets.

We have an Intake Request Form (http://www.dreamdachs.org/intakeRequest.php) on our website that people can use to describe dogs they have found or are needing to give up. For potential adopters, we require that all companion animals are spayed/neutered.

As of 8/5/17, we have over 300 volunteers, 52 of whom provide foster homes for our dogs. We usually have between 60 and 70 dogs available for adoption. We currently have 14 Forever Fosters (dogs who are not adoptable due to age, health, and/or behavioral issues), and 19 Senior Sanctuary Dogs. We attend numerous Adoption Awareness events to help spread the word about the importance of pet adoption, and spay and neutered.

As of 8/5/17, we have had 127 adoptions. We continue to promote our adoptable dogs on our website, facebook, Adopt-a-Pet and PetFinder, and will be attending multiple Adoption Awareness events to raise awareness of the pet overpopulation problem in Houston.
