rescue spotlight

Treatibles January 2020 Rescue Spotlight: Southern California Dachshund Relief, Inc.



A Good Samaritan who had seen Gus roaming around the neighborhood brought him to SCDR. It turns out, his owner had died and he was living in the yard alone with only food and water provided. We contracted the relative and they were happy to surrender him. Gus has a little bit of a hitch in his git-along. Daily glucosamine and Treatibles oil has made that a thing of the past. Gus is now happily adopted and living the good life.



This sweet long haired dachshund is one of our Forever Fosters. He came into rescue at 17 years of age with many medical issues. Treatibles full spectrum hemp oil helps with his joint discomfort and keeps his mind sharp. It's been two years since he arrived and he is still going strong.



This 10 year old beauty is a rare "blue" dachshund. Her coloring is a dilute of black and as if often found with this coloring, she has alopecia (hair loss). She is basically hairless. Ruthie was terrified when we first pulled her from the shelter. We provided Treatibles to her and now she is ready and eager to find her forever home.

“We have a young, longhair dachshund mix named Buffy currently in our care who we are working to help become adoptable. When she originally arrived, she was feral and had such a profound fear that she was totally shut down. We immediately started adding Treatibles oil to her food to help her with anxiety and stress. We were also able to place her in a very loving foster home. Now, less than three weeks later, Buffy has made such progress that she trusts her foster family and is accepting Treatibles Soft Chews right from their hands. Buffy has her own Facebook page, Buffy’s Journey, for those who wish to follow her progress in becoming adoptable.” – Lindy Latham, Rescue Coordinator, Southern California Dachshund Relief, Inc.

In 1994 animal lover Dena Delgado founded Southern California Dachshund Relief (SCDR). The entirely volunteer run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is dedicated to saving and rehabilitating dachshunds in need and then finding them wonderful new homes. Now 25 years strong, SCDR has grown to cover not only the Southern California area, but also Central and Northern California, Phoenix, Arizona and Reno, Nevada.
Dachshunds are recognized as being fun dogs. They are loyal, loving, security conscious, adorable and entertaining. Through basic training and socialization skills, dachshunds make wonderful pets.
To date, more than 4,600 dachshunds have been rescued by SCDR. An outstanding 99% of placements into homes have been successful. However, not all dogs rescued by the organization are eligible for adoptions. Those deemed unadoptable due to behavioral or medical issues are cared for by SCDR as ‘forever fosters.’

“Nearly every one of our Forever Fosters are given Treatibles products on a daily basis,” shared Lindy Latham, Rescue Coordinator, SCDR. “The full spectrum hemp oil and chews significantly help our seniors suffering from discomfort throughout their bodies. Treatibles also lessens the anxiety of the dogs with mild dementia and it helps calm those that are behaviorally unpredictable.”
