THIRD VISIT: Dachshunds Gidget and Mandy visited KEZI 9 News again on Tuesday, hoping their third television appearance will be the one that lands them a new home.
The pair’s adoption fee is being paid by a sponsor, so the new owner will only have to pay the licensing fee to take Gidget and Mandy home. The dogs are ages 10 and 13, and were taken to Greenhill Humane Society after their owner died. They are looking for a special home where they can live out their final years being cared for and loved.
More details about these unique little dogs are below.
UPDATE - Dachshunds Gidget and Mandy paid a second visit to KEZI 9 News on Tuesday, Feb. 27. The two little dogs are still at Greenhill Humane Society waiting for a new home. Their adoption fee has been reduced to $85 for the pair, and whoever decides to take them home will be given a gift basket filled with pet supplies.
FEB. 20TH STORY:
EUGENE, Ore. – This pair of older Dachshunds hopes their new owner will recognize the importance of keeping them together.
Gidget and Mandy, ages 10 and 13, ended up at Greenhill Humane Society after their owner died. Because Gidget is blind, she relies on Mandy to help her find her way around. These dogs will need a special family who will understand their needs as senior dogs and provide them with a good home for their final years.
The two could live in a quiet family with older children. Their adoption fee is $85 each, but the fee is negotiable for a family that agrees to keep them together.
The fee includes the cost of vaccinations, microchip identification, spaying or neutering, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and more.
Every Tuesday, Greenhill Humane Society showcases homeless pets on KEZI 9 News Midday at 11 a.m.
