Rescue Work: Checking on 3 Dogs in 1 Week

As volunteers for dog rescues, we get emails about Dachshunds or Weimaraners in local shelters that may need to be taken into a rescue. This week I received emails about 3 Dachshunds in local shelters that needed homes or foster homes. So, I inquired via E-mail  about each of the dogs and got some good news.  Fortunately, there are a couple of Dachshund rescues in the area, and two of the rescues managed to get the three Dachshunds and place them into foster care quickly this week.

Meet the dogs:
1)   MEET "DASH" 
Dash was found running around the city earlier today. She was taken to the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter or BARCS at 301 Stockholm Street, Baltimore MD 21230. BARCs said "She is just the cutest little thing and very sweet. Dash is a 12 yr – female – unaltered – 6.5 lbs. She is understandably nervous here but more than welcomes attention from all staff. Dash has a grade 2-3/6 heart murmur and possible mammary gland tumor. She also needs further dental examination."

The ANSWER:  Dash has a rescue commitment after stray hold, thank you!

2) MEET "MAX" 
Max is a 12 year old/senior red, smooth Dachshund who also came to BARCS in Baltimore.  Max's mother passed away a few months ago.  Other family members had been caring for him, but just moved to a new place that does not allow pets.  The owners said he has no known health issues, but can be a grouchy old man when he wants to be.   He is very scared at the shelter, but came over to sit with me and just shook in my lap.  He needs a quiet, patient family that will let him live out the rest of his days in comfort and luxury!  
ANSWER:  Max has left for rescue- thank you! :)  -melanie
- Max was taken into foster care by the Dachshund Rescue of North America thanks to our friend Shelley.


 Olivia is a wire haired black and tan dachshund about 10 years old. She came in as a stray to Anne Arundel County Animal Control. 
ANSWER: She was claimed by "Little Paws Dachshund Rescue" and brought into foster care!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
