Urgent Help Needed!
Wednesday afternoon our intake director was notified that a little wirehair girl was in bad shape. She was a stray that was turned in after people saw her get hit by a car. She could not bear weight on her rear legs and was in pain. If we could not take her, she would be euthanized. DRoH’s intake director could not say no. So a plan was put into place for to get this precious tiny little girl (only 10 pounds) into rescue. She arrived at our vets that same day and was immediately examined and pain meds were administered while we waited for her prognosis and treatment plan.
The results of the exam? Not one broken leg, but two! Her right rear femur is broken, AND both of her front right leg bones are broken. Very fixable. While not out of the woods yet, this darling has a bright future ahead of her, but DRoH needs your help! Our vets can heal her broken bones, our volunteers can love on her and make her feel special and loved, BUT her repairs will cost money. We want to our intake director to be able to say YES when that next call comes.
DRoH needs Foster Homes! DRoH needs folks that will open their hearts and homes to our dogs. We can’t say yes unless we have a place for the pups to land. Please consider saving a dachshund. http:// www.dachshundrescueofhouston.or g/fosterinfo.php
DRoH appreciates donations large and small....Please consider donating, so we will be able to provide Kerry with the best care possible. http:// www.dachshundrescueofhouston.or g/sponsor.php
Please keep good thoughts for her as her legs will be repaired tomorrow.

Spring Fling 2013!
What a great event! We had some fabulous sponsors, volunteers, and guests for the DROH Spring Fling. The photos for Spring Fling 2013 are now up! Take a look through at http://www.monica-lynn.com/drohspringfling2013.
Dachshund Rescue of Houston wants to thank each and every one of you for volunteering, sponsoring, donating and attending our annual Spring Fling. An event such as this requires a lot of helping hands, and we simply could not do it without all of you. So thank you! We had a great turnout at the event and with your help, and the generous hearts of all of the wonderful dachsie lovers, we were able to raise over $8,000 to save homeless dachshunds! Each and every dollar of the proceeds from this event re-emphasizes our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming a dachshund in need. As announced during the event, we still have the matching grant, so generously donated by the Barnard Family outstanding: every donation will be matched up to $15,000 for our favorite breed. That's Double Dachshund Love! It's easy to love a dachsie, now you can painlessly double it! Thank you all again for making Spring Fling a huge success. We are anticipating carrying that success forward in July at the Reliant World Series of Dogs. See you then!
