View Full Version : We Went to the DREAM Rescue Fundraiser Today

DREAM is a break off from DROH. While DROH takes in only shelter dogs or strays who are in danger of being killed, DREAM focusses on owner turn ins. Great people and a really fun fundraiser. We had a perfect day for it. Sunny and high 70's with NO rain for a change. It was originally going to be last Sunday and was rained out.

Here's the silent auction.

I bought the cute treat jar (with treats) and the big canvas tub with the pillow, some treats, a squeakie toy, a Texans jersey for dogs, the cute yellow stuffed doxie (which Scooter is not getting even though he wants it) and some more stuff. It was a very good day :cheer3::cheer3:

Who is that cutie blue doxie? Is he up for grabs?

Loving my Elliott,

Are you talking about the Isabella? I don't think he/she was up for adoption, but you'd have to check their website to be sure. I'm also not sure that they adopt out of the Houston area. It's a relativity new rescue and I don't know what the rules for adoption are.

Also, if you aren't familiar with Isabella. It can be a difficult coloring. There are health problem involved with any recessive breeding. Miller is out of double dapple breeding (another recessive breeding practice) and he has definitely had more than his share of health problems as he ages.

Looks like a fun day ad the dogs seemed to enjoy them self.

Great loot too :cheer3::cheer3:

(sigh) I wish more breed-specific people lived near me.

Glad you had such an awesome time, Patrice. Looks like DREAM is off to a great start.

I was thinking of all my friends up north where it cold. We had wonderful warm weather for the day. I hope it moves your way soon. :hug99::hug99:

Thanks for the info !!!

Loving my Elliott,

You're very welcome. Isabellas like some other dogs with recessive breeding are beautiful, but do tend to have more health problems than others. I wish it was different, but sadly its not.

What an awesome day.:cheer3:Love the pictures. Your post reminded me of the Dr. Seuss book Go Dog Go. I loved that book as a kid. :sillylove:Looks like a nice haul on the loot as well. Cash and Miller look handsome as always.:love98:

Are they connected to DREAM in Atlanta??? They broke off DARE. I have DREAM's logo as my right calf tat!!!

I doubt if they are. DREAM stands for Dachshund Rescue Education & Adoption Mission. They came about because DROH was always so full that all they could take was dogs that were in imminent danger of being PTS. DREAM focusses on owner surrenders and working with people who want to keep their dogs but can't for various reasons.
