As of Nov 1, 2019 the State of Texas is requiring ALL Animal Rescue Groups of any type of animal to collect and remit Sales Tax on all Adoption Fees. 

We are monitoring the situation and remaining in contact with other rescue organizations for any changes or updates.  In addition to being a registered 501c3, we feel we provide a public service which helps municipal shelters reduce their taxpayer costs by removing animals from their care when they and others call us. We believe in the montra of Adopt, Don't Shop and your adoption fees support a very different goal than a Pet Store, Puppy Mill or any other type of for profit animal sale.  Unlike a sale, our adoption fees only cover a fraction of our expenses.  We strongly feel animal adoption fees with registered 501c3 organizations should be exempt from sales tax.  We hope the State will reconsider this requirement.

You can help by contacting your local State representatives, as well as the Governor and Lt Governor's offices to voice your opinion.

Did you know ATDR was origionally formed to help disabled Dachshunds who were suffering from IVDD.  
We have a network of wonderful partner vets and surgeons helping us care for our fosters, and now one of these vets in Houston is working in the new field of Stem Cells to help paralized Doxies and he invited us, early on, to participate!!  
To learn more about IVDD in Dachshunds visit our IVDD Resources page!

special needs

ATDR does everything in its power to help our rescued doxies regardless of their medical needs.  The Dachshunds below require extensive medical attention.  We rely on donations to help cover these medical costs and the
Joan of Ark Memorial Fund has been established to this end.
On average our yearly vet expenses can run well over $150,000.  Please consider a donation to help us help these little guys!
Please help these special Doxies with a donation to the Joan of Ark Memorial Fund and read about Joanie below.

Joan Of Ark Memorial Fund
November 1, 2009
 Read Joanie's story
In April 2009, a sweet, feisty little soul came drifting into the lives and hearts of the ATDR volunteers. Sadly in early November, after 7 months of ups and downs, and despite all the efforts of her foster family and the many vets from Houston and Texas A&M who generously provided for her care, little Joanie slipped quietly away, wrapped in the arms of her foster mom, to drift back out of our lives, peacefully over the rainbow.  In honor of Joanie, her spirit that touched so many hearts, and her sheer will to survive, we have created the Joan of Ark Memorial Fund , to be used to help other Dachshunds who have been victims of extreme injuries or disease. It is our hope that Joanie’s legacy will live on, inspiring future donations in her memory to provide a chance at life for other special needs cases who’s outcomes, with Joanie watching over them, will leave them here with us….healed…..and with new, better futures in loving homes. And for those who must move on as Joanie did, we know she will be waiting to welcome them into the soft green grass and the cool peppermint breeze, somewhere, over the rainbow.

These are just some of the donations partners and programs we participate in!!
