DREAM Dachshund Rescue
2021 $50K Veterinary Challenge

$5K $10K $15K $20K $25K

OUCH!!!! Another shot, really? We as humans know it's so important for DREAM rescued dogs to receive spay/neuter surgeries, proper vaccinations, parasite prevention, dental cleanings and other needed veterinary procedures before going to their forever homes. Because DREAM is an all-volunteer organization (including our transporters, fosters, administrators and directors) we were able to spend 97% of our monies from donations and adoption fees on veterinary services during 2020. While adoption fees cover about 20% of the veterinary costs, we rely on and are extremely grateful to our donors who can help cover this shortfall to ensure all of our rescued Dachshunds are properly vetted prior to finding their forever homes. We are blessed to have generous donors, many of whom are former adopters, who donate for the dogs in our care.

We've gathered a group of Friends of DREAM to help with our fundraising for veterinary costs for the coming year. This group of Friends has agreed to match up to $25,000 of donations received from October 23 (Dachtoberfest 2021) through February 28, 2022. These funds will go directly to pay veterinary bills that DREAM will incur in 2022. Our intake is only limited by the amounts we have available to pay our veterinary clinics. That's $50,000 we can use to pay for veterinary bills to rescue and rehabilitate Dachshunds and then find them loving homes. Every dollar donated to this veterinary challenge will provide two dollars of vet care.

For each $5,000 raised in donations during the Challenge period of October 23, 2021 through February 28, 2022, we'll share a special story on a dog that has been saved because DREAM could pay for their veterinary needs because of our generous donors.
