    Just want to thank everyone who attended, donated, hosted and helped "run the show" this year! We raised just shy of $300 which will be donated to both DNRA and DASH Rescue organizations this week!! Thank you kindly for your generosity and participation... it was a GREAT event!!

    This is Michelle-Charlie and Rudy's mom. See my previous post. Is there anyone who knows how we could get a cart for Charlie as we cannot afford it and have been trying since Feb to get one for him. He would do wonderfully with it but we cannot buy one. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED.

    Hi -My name is Michelle. My husband and I own 2 adorable black and tan mini dachshunds, named Charlie and Rudy. At the end of this Feb 2013, Charlie got a herniated disc. I took him immediately to Orchard Park Medical Vet Hospital as I was told that was the place to go. His surgery left him with hind leg paralysis, a grossly deformed spine (before he had a beautiful straight back before surgery !!), an inabitlity to urinate (we have to express his bladder every 4-6 hours) and loss of bowel control. We have needed a two wheel cart for Charlie since Feb but have been unable to afford the $300 charge. is there any emergency fund or could we solicit funds to help us with a cart for Charlie. He is such a trooper and plays with toys, eats well, scoots around the house on his behind but it is hard on his joints.

      Hi Michelle, if you want to contact me offline to chat I can offer up some suggestions as to how to raise the funds. We can also take a collection on your behalf at this event, and send out an email solliciting help. Can you make the event this Sunday to chat? If not, please feel free to contact me via email so we can talk by phone soon. [masked]

    Would anyone be willing to donate some prizes for the Dachtoberfest "Halloweenie" costume contest? Please let me know!!

    I'll also be taking additional donations for Sparky's eye surgery fundraiser... so if you'd like to make a donation in addition to helping our DRNA and DASH Rescue (the organizations that will benefit from the $5 event admission charge), that would be wonderful, and we thank you! https://fundly.com/sparky-s-eye-surgery-fundraiser#more-info

    Emily, should we bring things to raffle off as usual? I assume so?

    September 30, 2013

    • Emily

      Yes please... raffle items are encouraged along with snacks or drinks to share with the group. See you soon! :)

    We are hosting the event with our next door neighbors who own 2 mini girls.
    We plan on grilling hot dogs plus other snacks and drinks. There is a large fenced area for the dogs to play with lots of room to run. There will be raffle items and prizes for the costume contest. If you would like to bring things for the raffle please do. The more items the more winners!

    We hope to see everyone on the 20th.
