Review from Guidestar

I volunteer time doing data input for the org. I've also been blessed to adopt 2 precious dogs from DDRTX over the years. This is a non-profit well worth your consideration...with them, the dogs come 1st! I cannot tell you how rewarding and heart-warming it is to see these little bundles of fur, that would have had a life of misery before DDRTX rescued them, blossom and become all they could be.

Diamond Dachshund is the kind of canine adoption agency an animal lover such as myself dreams of!! They care tremendously for each and every Dachshund making sure each dog is placed with the perfect home. We adopted "Sammy" from Diamond in 2008. He has been the perfect addition to our family. We HIGHLY recommend Diamond Dachshund! They're professionalism and care is beyond compare.

In 2008, after losing my adopted dachshund, I decided to foster dachshunds for Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas. I discovered that this group is full of caring, talented, informed people of all ages working to rehabilitate dachshunds, educate people, and find loving homes for their dogs.

DDRTX has foster homes and volunteers all over Texas and does a home visit, a vet check, and a reference check on all potential adopters and volunteers. If an adopter finds that he can no longer keep the dog, regardless of how long the dog has been with them, DDRTX will take the dog back.

The group’s director, Christine McEntyre, is awesome. She leads her own trained teams to respond to animal emergencies and disasters and won the 2009 Pedigree Westminster Rescue Hero Award for her work with DDRTX and her rescue teams.

What keeps me going in the group is the feeling I get when the right dog and the right family come together. The last time I watched this happen, the dog “washed” the face of the potential adopter with his tongue. When I saw this I knew the dog was home (see photo of the dog). In my opinion, if you’re serious about adopting a dachshund, Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is the place to call.

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!

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 have seen the organization struggle at times with growing pains but still does it's very best to maintain high standards. The dog's best interest and health is always the first priority.

Help them with financial donations to afford the systems that would help them be better organized.

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.

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!
