As cities across the world are responding to the Coronavirus outbreak, it is important that Central Texas Dachshund Rescue responds with our own precautions to ensure the safety of our community of rescue supporters. Effective immediately the following precautions are in place:

  • APPLICATION HOME VISIT — ALL home visits will be completed via Facetime, SKYPE or via a web hosted service where a visual home visit and discussion can be implemented. A follow up on site visitation will follow once the State mandated orders are lifted.
  • OUT-OF-STATE ADOPTIONS — All out-of-state adoptions are suspended

Hard Luck Charlie's Story

UPDATE: After yet another night in the hospital, Charlie was able to return back to his foster home tonight. Yesterday he ended up having to have some of his wound re-sutured after some came open. He now has new bandages and will require bandage changes for the next week or so. He still has a long road to recovery which will also incur a lot of vet expenses and currently right now our total expenses have come to $5626.84. CTDR has committed to taking care of Charlie, so if anyone is able to help with these vet expenses, it would be so appreciated. You can donate above. Every little bit helps.

UPDATE: Charlie is spending another night in the Animal Hospital. His body temperature is just about back to normal, glucose is normal, but his potassium levels are still low. He is still not wanting to eat; so if he does not eat within the next 12 hours, then a nasal gastric tube will be placed. This sweet boy is fighting to live and CTDR is committed to helping him get a second chance. His vet bills are escalating and the next 24 hours is costing another 1870.00 bringing our total so far to $3954.00. Any amount would be so helpful with paying his vet expenses. PLEASE help CTDR help Charlie!

UPDATE: Charlie is spending the next 24 hours in the Emergency Hospital to get fluids, more medications and hopefully get to feeling better. He had been lethargic today and still has not wanted to eat. The current estimate for him for the next 24 hours comes to $2154.35. Any amount is needed to help this little guy. He is a trooper and is fighting to live. A Paw Prayer Circle is needed for Charlie tonight.

Meet Hard Luck Charlie, a name that fits him well right now. This little guy was either attacked by another dog or even possibly a coyote according to the Animal control Officer who found him in a ditch as he had been left for dead. He was a little snappy at first but then calmed down. He was in a lot of pain as he had wounds all over. He was taken to an emergency vet so that he could get sutures and he also needed drain tubes for his injuries. He is resting comfortably this weekend with CTDR fosters who are very experienced with medical dogs. We are not quite sure what all medical this boy will need but CTDR is committed to providing him the very best of care and giving him a second chance at life. The vet thinks Charlie is about 4 years old. He has a long road ahead of him to a full recovery so any and all donations are so greatly appreciated to help with Charlie's medical expenses. Thanks for your support!
