Named in honor of our beloved Cindy Lou, the mission of Cindy Lou’s Sanctuary is to rescue and provide sanctuary as a loving and safe home for Dachshunds and other small breeds.

When possible we arrange adoptions to forever homes, but we are always committed to each one’s lifelong emotional and physical care.

Norma Jane
Something special just happened! A lovely donor asked me if she could make a donation in memory of her grandmother who just recently passed. She wanted a living namesake of her grandmother, asked if the next time we took in a senior spunky gal that needed a new name would we consider this? Of course we would!
Meet Lumpkins – a down dachshund, 12 years young who has come to be a sanctuary sweetheart – she is now Norma Jane Lumpkins! And she is as happy as can be! Sweet and Sassy! And we are in love with her!
