Welcome to 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.
