It all started with a group of dachshund owners pulling together to raise money for a little girl called red on gumtree.
Fast forward 2 years later, we have rehomed 168 dachshunds, given behaviour advice to over 100 owners, rehabilitated 8 IVDD sufferers and become a registered charity !
Thank you to those original group of daxie owners that raised money for Red (now Luna); To all our supporters who donate and create awareness for us - please give yourselves a pat on the back, without you guys we would not be able to continue; To all owners who have entrusted us with rehoming, thank you for believing in and trusting us. Its been an awesome 2 years.
How often do you see a post about a missing dachshund and think' there's no point sharing as it's miles away from me'.
Well let us tell you the story of Dave and why it helps to share.
Dave had been missing for 30 days with no sightings. But his family wouldn't give up and kept details about him out on social media.
It paid off when they got a phone call from someone saying they had been to buy a kitten and thought they had seen Dave. His family went round straight away and there was no doubt it was Dave as he flung himself into his mum's arms.
It had alway been suspected that Dave had been stolen by someone in a white van near where he went missing. The person who had him was never going to register his chip so without the power of social media, it is unlikely that Dave would ever have been reunited.
So when you're asking yourself if it's worth sharing that post, remember Dave and how somebody taking two seconds out of their life to share a post meant that his family got him back. ... See MoreSee Less
When a dog comes into our care, not only do we pay for neutering, if required, but we also pay for any medical treatment identified at their first vet check.
Last month we spent £2425 on vet bills and we've spent more than that in January already, mostly due to dental treatment.
We are therefore hoping to hold another auction in February and are looking for donations that we can use. So if you have anything we can auction - an unwanted Christmas gift, that item that's been sitting in a drawer for a few years, or anything really - please get in touch. ... See MoreSee Less
