Current Nail Clipping Charity

Little Paws Dachshund Rescue
is an all-volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) dog rescue. LPDR was founded in 2013 and since then has rescued over 300 dogs throughout the east coast and as far west as Texas. They specialize in dachshunds, dachshund mixes and other small breeds when space is available. They do not have a shelter, they rely on the generosity of their foster families to house the dogs until they are adopted.

All dogs are fully vetted before adoption including spay/neuter, vaccines, dental cleanings when needed and mircrochips. In addition, any special medical needs such as heartworm positive dogs, Lyme positive dogs, orthopedic issues, system illnesses, etc., are addressed and cared for wherever possible. They also have a number of sanctuary dogs in their rescue which cannot be adopted out due to medical issues but will live in the loving care of their foster families for the rest of their lives.
