Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society - Midwest

Our Adoptable Pet List

Welcome to Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society (AHDRS). Thanks for stopping by! We are a national network of independent rescuers who work together to rescue abandoned, abused, and unwanted dachshunds. We provide medical and behavioral care for them, place them in loving homes, and work out transports to get them to their new families. AHDRS is a nonprofit organization, so all contributions are tax-deductible.

What is Almost Home?

Almost Home Dachshund Rescue Society is an organization that represents a new approach to rescue. We are independent rescue volunteers across the U.S. and Canada who have joined together to provide contacts and support while maintaining our independent status. As a group, we share access to a web site, transport and foster help, information about dogs needing help, and general support. As independent rescuers, we maintain control over how we rescue and place our foster dogs. Members are responsible for the medical care the dogs require, and they determine their own adoption fees. One of our primary goals as a group is raising money to help members care for dogs who require medical treatments that cannot be covered by adoption fees. In this venture, we all work together to build up the AHDRS medical fund.

Mission Statement

Almost Home has a goal of respectful support of independent volunteers who offer rehabilitation and placement of unwanted dachshunds. The network offers a new approach to dachshund rescue in that we hope to offer a place for volunteers to access information from our national web site, post available dachshunds, and enjoy the support of other members in a friendly, open forum. Through fundraising efforts we hope to provide our affiliates assistance with treatments beyond their own rescue budgets. We also hope to offer referrals to other groups based on locality and requirements. Continued public awareness of puppy mills, spay/neuter issues and responsible ownership will be important goals of Almost Home Dachshund Rescue.

We will keep your application on file so that, when a suitable dog is rescued, we know you're waiting for him!
