A big problem faced by rescuers is what to do about dogs who need medical care that is much more costly than any adoption fee could cover. Many of the dogs who come into rescue groups have just such problems, so one of the primary goals in founding Almost Home was to focus on innovative fundraising approaches. Our goal was, and is, to help our own rescuers care for rescued dogs who require extensive medical care and to help other individuals and rescue groups with donations to help such dogs.

In June 2011, Almost Home celebrated its tenth anniversary and, as this page shows, our commitment to this goal has paid off. The dogs below are only some of those AHDRS was able to help by paying for expensive, but necessary, medical care.

In a spirit of cooperation with and commitment to all rescue efforts, we have also been able to make donations to help other rescue groups with their needy dogs. AHDRS has provided financial help to dogs in the care of the Disabled Dachshund Society, Dachshund Rescue of North America, Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, Midwest Dachshund Rescue, People for Pets, Kentucky Dachshund Rescue, Las Vegas Dachshund Rescue, and All Texas Dachshund Rescue, as well as shelters and individual rescuers. We also solicited funds from visitors to our Web site for two once-paralyzed Disabled Dachshund Society dogs (both are walking now and both have been adopted into loving homes), two Iowa groups that rescued a large number of puppy mill dogs, Hearts United for Animals, and a California rescue society that needed financial help to pay for an expensive surgical procedure. Our members and visitors to our Web site responded to all of those pleas with exceptional generosity.
We are always glad to accept contributions, no matter how small, to our medical fund. Individual contributions make a huge difference to dogs like these. They often mean the difference between life and death. If you would like to make a donation in honor of any of our special dogs, you can do so here -  it will help us to continue providing medical care for dachshunds in need.
