Kaia needs our help

The 5 year-old black and tan dachshund Kaia underwent back surgery early Friday morning. For her human, Jennifer Hales Yandoli, this is her second dachshund to undergo the surgery in less than one year. Jake, Jennifer’s other black and tan rescue, had the $6,000 surgery last December. In all my years of being part of the dachshund community I continue to be amazed by how well we all seem to rally for each other.

Dachshund Outreach Giving and Socialization (DOGS) is spearheading an 8-day fundraising effort to help with the financial hardship of paying for two very expensive surgeries. Additionally, for the first 100 donations, you’ll receive a custom thank you photo postcard featuring Kaia – perfect for display on the refrigerator or office bulletin board. All donations are tax deductible, and DOGS is getting it started with a $100 donation. To contribute please click here.

We all need help from time to time, and if we collectively give a little each, our impact can be big. So please consider giving, especially for Kaia.
