We are using the funds to help pay the surgeon’s bill on a 10-month-old Dachshund mix that we rescued from BARC, the City of Houston animal shelter. His name is Dutch. It is [an open-admission] shelter; this small dog was not wanted by any of the rescues. He has a fractured leg and demodex mange; his surgeon’s bill will be approximately $2,000 and his vet’s bills will be over $600 to treat his other ailments. Although he is not a “shaggy dog,” we felt he was worth saving — we usually take the dogs that no one else wants.
