Almost Home Dachshund Rescue
Society (AHDRS). Thanks for stopping by!
We are a network of independent rescue volunteers who
work together to rescue abandoned, abused, and/or
unwanted dachshunds. We provide medical and behavioral
care for them and place them in loving and appropriate
homes. AHDRS is a nonprofit organization, so all
contributions are tax-deductible. To learn more about AHDRS, click here.
Almost Home Dachshund
Rescue Society is not affiliated with any other rescue
group, transport service or pet-related business using
"Almost Home" in its name. A number of all-breed
rescue groups, founded after the formation of AHDRS,
now use "Almost Home" in their names, and some of
their Web site addresses are similar to ours. Other
businesses have also formed since that time using
“Almost Home” in their names and web addresses. AHDRS
is an independent national dachshund rescue
organization founded in 2001 and is comprised entirely
of volunteers dedicated to fostering and fundraising
to help our beloved breed.
GoodSearch turns your everyday internet searches into
