fun idea for upcoming halloween:
an animation consisting of a cat guy, a ghost chick, and a walking jack-o-lantern that looks like they’d be doing groovy spooky stuff
but instead they’re really just nerds who don’t even know how to be scary
a lot of people were saying there should be a skeleton involved
PLEASE REBLOG AND/OR DONATE!!
Denver Dachshunds Rescue and Transport is a small (no-kill) dog foster rescue NPO that specializes in dachshund and dachshund-mixed breeds. It retrieves dogs from Colorado and nearby states and rehabilitates and fosters them until they can be placed with their forever families.
Donations help the rescue reach more dogs in need nationwide, and currently they are also raising money for a low-cost shelter/clinic that will serve the local community and the many animals taken in to the rescue.
Dachshunds and other small dogs are favorites for gift-giving and city-dwellers, who falsely assume that their compact size makes them a “low-maintenance” pet that will not require much effort or training. When the dogs do not meet these expectations, people often decide they cannot handle ownership. Dachshunds, while very affectionate, are also an unexpectedly aggressive breed for people who don’t have experience with their temperament. Young families often expect dachshunds will get along well with new babies or small children, when the opposite is true. This leads to the abandonment of many older dogs that have special needs, who have a hard time finding new homes. Fortunately DDRT is very successful in communicating the benefits of adopting a dog at any age or ability and finding them new homes.
Please help keep small dogs off of craigslist and out of kill shelters and streets. Help them get into homes that love them. Every donation helps.
