Adoption Questions

How do I adopt a daxie?

Please fill out the Adoption Form

Can a daxie be transported interstate?

Yes but will be subject to the dog's temperament and health. Adopters will be required to pay for airfares.

How old do I have to be to adopt a D2DR daxie?

You do need to be over 18 to adopt a Dachshund at D2DR, but we do assess each person individually.

Are D2DR daxies fully vet checked before being rehomed?

All daxies are vet checked and assessed prior to going to their furever homes.

Does D2DR ensure vaccinations are up to date before rehoming?

D2DR check that all vaccinations are up to date.

Does D2DR desex all daxies before rehoming?

Daxies are desexed prior to rehoming. If for whatever reason this cannot be done (eg: too young) a clause is included in Adoption Agreement giving a specified time to adopter for proof of sexing. A security bond is also payable refundable upon proof of desexing.

What do I do if I am having trouble with my daxie following adoption?

D2DR offer a two week trial for all Adopters to ensure the home and family is a perfect fit. We can also point you in the right direction to access Animal Behaviourist assessment as we do understand daxies can sometimes have a mind of their own!

What do I do if I find my circumstances change and I cannot keep my adopted daxie?

D2DR will always accept an adopted daxie back as we understand circumstances change. However if this occurs after the two week trial period adoption fees are non refundable.

Can I get a donation refund?

D2DR is committed to recognising and respecting the financial contributions people make to our cause. We recognise the importance of donations and want to ensure we implement appropriate principles of transparency and fairness in regard to the management of refunds.

We ask that you carefully consider the amount you wish to donate. D2DR will consider all requests for refund for funds paid directly into our Bank Accounts and PayPal account to ensure that genuine errors are rectified as soon as possible, and the decision to do so will be at D2DR’s discretion.

A refund may be granted if:
• An error is made by the donor in making an online donation
• The donor changes their mind or the donation is no longer considered feasible
• An error is made by D2DR or our financial institution

We will honour all requests for refund that are made in writing within 30 days of the date the donation was made. The written refund request should include the details of the initial transaction including date, donation amount, donor’s name, tax invoice number or order number, and the nature of the error.

If a donation is refunded, the original tax receipt is no longer valid. If a donation amount is adjusted by D2DR, the original receipt issued will become invalid and a new receipt will be issued for the adjusted donation amount.

Refunds will be returned using the original method of payment – if donation has been made by credit card, the refund must be credited to the same credit card holder.

Requests for refund can be sent by email to
