Update 2/12/14 5:00 p.m. (PST): Safe and out of the building! Rescued by Dachshund Rescue Team.

On Feb. 5, a two-year-old Dachshund mix and her young pup, were taken in at the Moreno Valley Animal Services facility in Moreno, Calif.

Hundreds of dollars in pledges have been made for this beautiful family on the friends of the shelter's Facebook page, but as of yet, a rescue, or adopter, has not been found.

Despite the mother dog's youthful age, and the undeniable cuteness of her pup, they are not safe - they need a rescue agency or an adopter to commit to save their life.
