Karen Cloud FP1Karen Cloud FP2Karen Cloud was a long-time, dedicated dog rescuer in Houston, a valued foster parent for All Texas Dachshund Rescue, and active with BARC and Dalmatian Rescue over the years to mention a few. Very sadly and way too soon, she lost her battle with cancer the morning of Sunday, March 15, 2020. It is with the utmost love, admiration, and respect for Karen, her beloved daughters Christie and Vickie and adored grandsons Taten and Sawyer that we take a moment to let you know just how special her contribution was to both human and animal lives.

Karen was an inspiration to countless rescuers, being an integral party to so many other’s work. Through many years, she had made innumerable contacts and was always willing to share information with other rescuers, helping to save so many dogs. She was always so open and willing to help anyone with their rescue projects, making a huge difference in this world of paw prints we who do rescue strive to make better…she will be greatly missed by all of us.

The legacy of Karen’s kind spirit, zest for life, and passion for nature and animals will live on. God gained an angel greeted by hundreds of loving dogs, whose lives she had touched, when she entered the gates of Heaven by way of the Rainbow Bridge…

Did you know ATDR was origionally formed to help disabled Dachshunds who were suffering from IVDD.  
We have a network of wonderful partner vets and surgeons helping us care for our fosters, and now one of these vets in Houston is working in the new field of Stem Cells to help paralized Doxies and he invited us, early on, to participate!!  
To learn more about IVDD in Dachshunds visit our IVDD Resources page!

special needs

ATDR does everything in its power to help our rescued doxies regardless of their medical needs.  The Dachshunds below require extensive medical attention.  We rely on donations to help cover these medical costs and the
Joan of Ark Memorial Fund has been established to this end.
On average our yearly vet expenses can run well over $150,000.  Please consider a donation to help us help these little guys!
Please help these special Doxies with a donation to the Joan of Ark Memorial Fund and read about Joanie below.

Joan Of Ark Memorial Fund
November 1, 2009
 Read Joanie's story
In April 2009, a sweet, feisty little soul came drifting into the lives and hearts of the ATDR volunteers. Sadly in early November, after 7 months of ups and downs, and despite all the efforts of her foster family and the many vets from Houston and Texas A&M who generously provided for her care, little Joanie slipped quietly away, wrapped in the arms of her foster mom, to drift back out of our lives, peacefully over the rainbow.  In honor of Joanie, her spirit that touched so many hearts, and her sheer will to survive, we have created the Joan of Ark Memorial Fund , to be used to help other Dachshunds who have been victims of extreme injuries or disease. It is our hope that Joanie’s legacy will live on, inspiring future donations in her memory to provide a chance at life for other special needs cases who’s outcomes, with Joanie watching over them, will leave them here with us….healed…..and with new, better futures in loving homes. And for those who must move on as Joanie did, we know she will be waiting to welcome them into the soft green grass and the cool peppermint breeze, somewhere, over the rainbow.

These are just some of the donations partners and programs we participate in!!
