Tennessee Dachshund Rescue: COVID-19 Operation Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The grant was used for direct medical care for homeless dachshunds in our care.

It helped us continue our mission during an extremely difficult time when donations and adoptions were down, but homeless pets remained steady. We were able to continue to accept homeless dogs into our care.

How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Chance came to TDR as a scared, anxious pup. He had never been socialized and had been abandoned at an empty house. TDR was contacted by the local shelter about this terrified boy, who had completely shut down and was labelled as a biter. We immediately stepped in and rescued Chance.

Chance is now living his best life. He was recently adopted and has really come out of his shell. He still suffers from anxiety, but he has gained so much confidence.
