Fenwick came to the Atlantic Canada Dachshund Rescue from the SPCA with an unknown history, health issues, but with a lot of love left to give. He is a middle aged guy around 8 with a kind temperament, who needs lots of attention, love, help, and care.

At the Atlantic Canada Dachshund RescueACDR, we rescue, foster, take care of health and beahvioural needs, and then work as hard as we can to find a forever home for dachshunds all across Atlantic Canada. We have been doing so for years and have been 100% sucessful to date. As an all volunteer organization, we rely solely on contributions and volunteer's time and hard work. Largely thanks to help from folks like you!

One of of our recent dogs is Fenwick, an extremely handsome, loving boy in need of help. He has taken a special place in many of our volunteers hearts.

Fenwick came to our group from a local shelter, he was likely in and out of shelters his whole life, or someone simply gave up on him.

We were alerted to his need, immediately came to his help and placed him with a loving and caring foster family. 

While in foster care over the last couple weeks he has gone to the Vet for the standard check up we give all dogs. What came back was that he needed our help bad.

He had skin infections:

  • ear & eye infections,
  • possible urinary infection
  • several undiagnosed lumps, inflamation,and swelling

 He was likely in discomfort for a long time.

We have cleaned him up and improved his quality of life immensely, he is now a much happier and healthier dog. Up until this point it cost us $1,000 + in vet bills and more to come, essentially taking all of our current funds. He still needs skin ointments, further antiobiotics, doggy diapers for incontinence, training and lots of love. 

All proceeds go directly to paying his current and future bills. Any amount above the goal will go towards helping the other dogs in our care.

Any amount of help you can give will help this extremely handsome older boy live out the rest of his life in grassy lawns under the sun, with as much love as he has always deserved!

***I mean look at him, he is so handsome!!!

He is currently looking for his forever home, you can find more information about him on our FB page, ACDR. Please feel free to Facebook message us any questions at all. Getting the money to help these dogs is only half the battle, we also need dedicated foster parents, volunteers and forever homes!

Special thanks to his foster parents Kirsten & Wayne and their family, for their patience, dedication, love and free professional photography.
