Joanie Needs Your Help

Thank you to the reader who forwarded this on.

Greetings,
My name is Barbara Lewis and I am with All Texas Dachshund Rescue. I am writing to you to make a plea for each and every one of you to send prayers and healing rays to sweet, little Joanie.
She is a pathetic little thing that came into a shelter as a stray. The shelter sent out a plea asking for a rescue organization to take on, not only the care giving challenge of this dog,but the financial challenge as well. We (All Texas Dachshund Rescue) agreed to take that challenge and try our best to give this sweet little thing a second chance at life that she so deserves.
Please remember Joanie in your prayers and if you can spare a few dollars to go towards her care, it would be greatly appreciated. She is a sweet little thing, and as long is she is up for the fight for life, we will stand and fight beside her all the way. Please read her story at www.atdr.org

Thank you, Barbara Lewis--Founder All Texas Dachshund Rescue

See what love and medical care can do by keeping up with Joanie's story at All Texas Dachshund Rescue.

How sad, she sounds like a fighter though, I went right over and donated. Fingers crossed she continues to do well and thrive.

I saw little Joanie's picture and couldn't help but cry for her. Please keep all of us in the loop on how she progresses.

This is definitely one of the worst examples of abuse/neglect I've ever seen. I've not seen a dog in this condition able to stand. I think perhaps if she were *truly* a stray (rather than abandoned) that she'd be in better shape.

Blue is donating his chewie allowance. I'm glad she found a haven in rescue - we are active in out local (to us) all-breed rescue and I wish her wellness and safety: Be well and safe, little girl.

I feel better after following the link and seeing Joanie recovering in a fleecy bed and taking a walk in a sunny garden. Thank you for linking to this so we could donate. Heartbreaking.

The outpouring of help for Joanie is amazing. Way to go everyone, and of course ATDR. Like a flower, she is going to just blossom over the next few months!

I just encountered this sight and had a few tears in my eyes after reading her story. My condolences for the foster family who lovingly took her in and gave her probably the best moments in her life.

I would have donated, but she had already passed away when I found out about her story. I was so upset.
