MWDR 2012

As you busily sort out your shopping list, pen your Christmas cards, plan your holiday soirée, and scrape up some cash to donate to your favorite charity this season, don't forget your local Dachshund or Animal Rescue organization.  We're lucky to have one of the finest Dachshund rescue organizations in the country to help out our local long dogs, Rowdy's alma mater, MidWest Dachshund Rescue. 
Please give generously to the folks who work tirelessly all year long to rescue, vet, foster, and re-home the Dachshunds and dogs who are in the greatest need. 
Enjoy MWDR's 2012 Year End Video.  Excerpt from their end-of-the year letter:

On behalf of the many foster home, volunteers and contributors of MDWR, we are pleased to report that 2012 has been our most successful year. We have helped 249 dachshunds from puppy mills, shelters, abandoned dogs and owner surrenders. Our volunteers have driven thousands of miles with one goal in mind, to help dogs without the good fortune of being raised and cared for in loving homes or those that have found themselves homeless through no fault of their own.
We wish to express our deepest appreciation to our donors whose contributions and in-kind donations have been key to our efforts. We also appreciate the many animal care providers who helped our dogs throughout the year. Our deepest gratitude goes to our volunteers who helped us transport, foster, and care for all the dogs who came to MWDR in 2012. MWDR is especially grateful to the many people who adopted our dogs in 2012, and who welcomed the dogs into loving homes. Finally MWDR remembers all the wonderful little dogs who came our way and who provided us with hope and strength as we watch their tails wag and receive their appreciative kisses, and unconditional love.
We are hopeful to expand our funding and volunteer base in 2013 to be able to help more dogs and connect them with even more loving homes. Thank you for being part of the MWDR family. Wishing you all a happy, safe and healthy 2013!

So beautiful. It made Mom cry.

Trinket's mom said...

I cried too, Tootsie.

It was right about this time three years ago that I adopted Trinket. She'd been rescued from a hoarding situation. Trinket was only 10 months old and had already had a litter of puppies.

A few weeks before I adopted Trinket, a policewoman friend and neighbor of mine was walking a miniature black and tan smooth girl. It had been found wandering the streets of Greer SC. No one ever came foreward to claim her. I was thinking if adopting her as I knew my terrier Lucy was lonely after we'd put our elderly Lab down that summer. Unfortunately, this sweet girl attacked another dog while she was being fostered. She had to be placed in a home where she would be the only dog.

For some reason my husband was in Petsmart when 4 Pets Sake rescue group was there. He called me at home and told me that they had a dachshund up for adoption and would I like the dog for Christmas. I went to see her and fell in love! Trinket spent the first week of her new life sleeping on my chest right under my chin. Trink is a chocolate dapple smooth that looks very much like one of the doxies who found a forever home due to the good work of MidWest Dachshund Rescue.
