I adopted a sweet little boy just over a year ago. I thought the people at DDRTX were very nice and professional. They are a caring group of people who are very dedicated to finding good homes for their dogs. I couldn't have had a more pleasant experience:)

We have adopted several dogs from DDRTX over the years and could not be more pleased. This rescue group has high, but not unreasonable, standards for adopters to ensure that these rescued dogs have forever homes. DDRTX is committed to these dogs for life. DDRTX also often takes in dogs that other rescue groups will not take. DDRTX is a rescue group with integrity that puts the dogs' needs first.

We adopted our dog Kirby about 5 years ago from Diamond Dachshund Rescue. We were very happy with the way we were treated and amazed at what a good job they do to find dachshunds a home. They talked to all our references and our vet. After the adoption we called several times with questions and they were always helpful and informative. We were so impressed with what a wonderful job they do. We would not have wanted it any other way. In the past year we have become a foster home for DDRTX and are just amazed at the good work they do and the dogs they help! Cyndee and Danny Bruen

I have also adopted from this rescue group and everything about them is wonderful. They take the time and effort to make sure every dog goes to the right home. The dogs that are rescued have already been through enough without being placed yet again into another bad situation. This rescue group does everything in its power to ensure that does not happen. Each and every person with this group gives up their time to make the process work. Everyone is a volunteer no one gets paid a dime. The volunteers all care about each dog that is rescued. I now volunteer with the rescue after I adopted because I too love the little furr-babies and want to make sure we can save as many precious lives as possible.

I am blessed to not only be a volunteer with this wonderful group, but I am also an adopter of one of their wonderful dogs. The members of this rescue truly care about the dogs and want only to help ensure they find the best possible homes imaginable. Sometimes, that even means that they never find an adopted home, but rather live their life out safe in rescue. DDRTX makes a lifetime committement to their foster dogs... I've even been part of an interstate, multi-leg "recon" mission when one of the foster dogs was discovered to have been left in a shelter several states away. Yes, the adoption process is thorough and takes a bit of time to complete... but that is because they care so much about a successful placement! DDRTX treats their foster dogs like family... so they make a great family member for you!

I have adopted from Diamond Dachshund twice in the last 7 years. Both times were the most amazing experience ever. I knew that working with rescue groups you need to have a certain level of patience because they are all...after all, volunteers doing this in between raising families, working, and even going to school on top of their rescue activities. I have 2 of the sweetest little babes as a result. They knew which dogs to let me meet. Dogs which fit my personality, my other dogs and my lifestyle. They are always available when I have questions about my dogs. I will definitely go through them again when/if I decide I can't live without another dachshund...I HIGHLY recommend this organization to my friends and people I've never even met!

I had the most horrible experience with these people. I have never felt like crap and there was no remose......I had to put my dog Paris (a double dapple dachshund) to sleep for some complications and was deeply sadden and heart broken. When I finally felt ready for another dachshund thought I would adopt a dog who needed a loving home I goggles and thought this place was perfect but when i explained what had happen annd instead I got asked a million questions and very rude may I add what I could of done different and even though I did everything in my power to save my dog and just wasn't good enough and they had no remose! But netherless to say I found another great place that rescues dachshunds and adoopted a dog who is spoiled as ever

Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is committed to rescuing and rehabilitating dachshunds and finding quality forever homes for them. They check references and do a homevisit on everyone that adopts a dog from their organization. DDRTX strives to maintain high standards in their organization and the care of their dogs.

I adopted my miniature dachshund Bella about a year ago from Diamond Dachshund rescue. From the beginning, I have been extremely impressed with the efforts and hard work of this volunteer-run organization. Christine, the Executive Director, and the volunteers put an endless amount of love and effort into the organization. Bella is the perfect fit for my family and I, and she is the apple of our eyes. She makes everyday better with her dainty little self. Diamond Dachshund is an incredible organization, and I'm proud to be a part of it.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the commitment, hard work, dedication, love, and hope from the volunteers

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazing

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save many more deserving and helpless dachshunds who are in need of a good home

Ways to make it better...

nothing- everything has been great

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the economy- animal rescue organizations are being hit hard with people giving up their animals due to their economic status.

One thing I'd also say is that...

donate and help Diamond Dachshund!
