Do you feel it is the right time for getting a Dachshund in your life, but you don’t want to buy your pet? The best possible solution would be to get in touch with Dachshund rescue organizations and check if they have a dog in need of a new home.

Dachshunds are among the most popular dog breeds in the US, but sadly, they still end up in shelters and rescues. Just because they end up there doesn’t mean there is something wrong with them. Many dogs end up in shelters because their owners cannot take care of them anymore. Instead of abandoning their dogs, they surrender them to specialized rescues that will do everything they can to find them new families.

Here is a list of our favorite Dachshund rescues.

1. All Texas Dachshund Rescue

If you live in the Lone Star State, you should contact the All Texas Dachshund Rescue. This organization is run entirely by volunteers. They save, rehabilitate, and provide vet care to Doxies in need. They cover the whole State, and their network of volunteers is pretty wide. Dogs in their care are placed in temporary foster homes where they are taken care of. Dogs get the necessary meds, shots, and are neutered or spayed. They are also socialized and prepared for their new forever homes.

5. Midwest Dachshund Rescue

One of our favorite Doxie rescues is the Midwest Dachshund Rescue. They operate over several states, so if you are from the Midwest, giving them a call might be the first step to getting a Dachshund. Most adoptions these guys organize are a success because they have a strict application process. They will check out your home, all your family members, and the environment the dog will come into. They will organize a meet and greet in the dog’s foster home, and you will have a 2-week probation period with your new dog. It can seem a bit long and tiring, but that’s the best way to make sure you and the dog will click.
