Pilots and Paws will be flying Cinnamon, an 11-month-old dachshund mix, in to Ellington Field tonight just in time for Dachshund Rescue of Houston to help find her a new home for the holidays.  The flight bringing Cinnamon from Abbeville, Louisiana, to Houston will be arriving at the Flying Tigers Flight School at Ellington Field between 5-6 PM on December 23rd.

Dachshund Rescue of Houston (DRoH) volunteers will be out in force tonight to welcome Cinnamon, who was saved from euthanasia at a dog pound in Abbeville, Lousiana, by volunteers with Pilots and Paws. The affectionate pup is highly adoptable, but the Louisiana pound does not allow public adoptions and instead relies on rescue groups to claim the abandoned dogs.

The folks at Dachshund Rescue of Houston specialize in helping homeless purebred dachshunds placing about 170 dogs into loving homes annually.

“Even though Cinnamon appears to be a mix, she has been described as being a sweet dog with a fine disposition – and we wanted to give her a second chance at life,” said Dachshund Rescue Adoption Coordinator Teresa Corey.

Pilots and Paws is providing Cinnamon’s flight to Houston at no charge.

Media interested in covering the event should contact Aletheia Lawry at (713) 865-0275 for press credentials and an exact landing time.

About Dachshund Rescue of Houston:

The sole purpose of Dachshund Rescue of Houston is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home dachshunds in need of a second chance. We rescue purebred (and a few mixed) dachshunds from pounds and shelters. Some have had a wonderful life before they were left at a shelter, while others have been abused, neglected, and starved of food and human affection their entire life. We believe there is a home somewhere for every dog rescued. DRoH’s success depends on its many foster parents, volunteers, sponsors, contributors, and veterinarians.
