Dachshund Rescue of Houston: Grant Report

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

Spay/neuter surgery for each of our seniors. Reduction in adoption fees for seniors. Heartworm preventative (three months to each adopter).

Vet care is expensive, and this grant helped defray some of these costs. Seniors are especially vulnerable to less-than-minimal medical attention because "they're just old dogs." Heartworm preventative is expensive and each of our dogs starts as soon as they come to DRoH. Spay/neuter is the first step to new lives for these pups.

How many pets did this grant help?

Four of our seniors

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

Chrysanthemum (first photo) was our leading lady for senior adoptions. She charmed herself into a new life with her very own senior, Grace. Chrysanthemum, a.k.a. Libby, now visits (and attends) afternoon Mahjong games and socializes with other residents. A life of leisure for Libby and her very own person, Grace!

Two of the three other seniors from our posting have also been adopted, but Petey Shore (second photo) is still available. You can meet him here.
