Welcome to Happy Tails!
Please use the menu at left to navigate our site.

Adopted dogs at HTDR are up to date on all shots, spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, de-wormed, have necessary dental cleaning, have seen a Veterinarian for wellness and are ready for their forever home. Within one week after adoption we call to make sure adoptive parent and furry child are doing well together. 

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit: Our Mission at Happy Tails Dachshund Rescue, Inc. (HTDR) is to save as many dachshunds as possible from suffering and premature death due to abuse, neglect, abandonment, injury, or illness. We foster unwanted dogs whose owners are no longer able or willing to provide for their care and place them with adoptive families who can provide loving, forever homes.  We spay/neuter all dogs before adoption, and contact our adoptive families in the first week to check on the health of their relationship with their new pet. Our area of operation is the East Valley of the Greater Phoenix Area, Casa Grande, and north Tucson.

This is Lilly, a 6 year old black and tan miniature dachshund. She is a very sweet little girl! In this pre-op photo, you can see that Lilly has a large hernia in her abdomen. It has been successfully repaired by Dr. Marsh of Cobblestone Veterinary Clinic in Tempe.

We need help! Lilly’s medical expenses are very high due to the difficult nature of this surgery and the extensive rehab required to restore her to good health. Once Dr. Marsh releases Lilly from his care, she can be adopted into her forever home.

Please consider making a contribution to Happy Tails Dachshund Rescue general fund. Donations in any amount are welcome and are tax deductible.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.


This a good looking bunch of doxie lovers. These are some of the 2012 Happy Tails Doxie Rescue volunteers at a get together today. Thank you all for everything that you do. This gathering and cook out is a small token of our thanks for all the hard work you do for our furry children. Lets make 2012 an even better year than 2011!






Sunday 3/4/2012 - We received 10 doxies from a breeder in Missouri.

Aside from a couple of them being a bit underfed, they appear to be in good health.

They will make it onto our adoption roles over the next few weeks as they gain some

weight and are cleared by our veterinarian.
