Matching Funds Fundraiser 2014
In early May 2009, we rescued a five year old dachshund from the Camarillo shelter. We named him Albert Einstein. Albert came to us over-weight and paralyzed in his rear end.
Albert - May 2009
After several weeks of medication, crate rest, and physical therapy, Albert regained use of this hind legs and was subsequently adopted by the Nussbaum family. They affectionately call him Alberto, and he is truly their miracle dog.
In the Fall of 2014, Alberto was diagnosed with lung cancer and began undergoing a pioneering new method of radiation at City of Angels Cancer Center. In just three sessions, the tumors and lesions have shrunk to almost nothing, and Alberto is celebrating ten glorious years of life. His mama, Carole Nussbaum, is deliriously in love with him and has moved heaven and earth to keep her boy healthy and happy.
Carole Nussbaum Alberto 2014
In the spirit of the holidays, and to celebrate Alberto’s second lease on life, Carole, a long time fan and supporter of Southern California Dachshund Relief, has pledged to donate matching funds up to $2000 for our dachshunds in need, whether they are in the hospital, in a foster home recovering from surgery, or any other health care needs we are able to provide for. This will give us $4,000 total. If our supporters and fans are able to come together to make this possible, we will be very grateful. This is truly a very wonderful opportunity and generous offer, but we need your help to achieve our goal.
Whether you are able to donate $1 or $100 or more, please donate now, because this means for every dollar donated between December 7th and December 31st, Carole Nussbaum and Alberto will match those donations dollar for dollar. All donations submitted either through our Paypal account, or your personal check, are eligible for matching funds.
Won’t you help us meet this goal?
