A Message from the Board of Alberta Dachshund Rescue

Thanks, Sheri.

On October 30, 2016, Sheri Rose, the Founder and President of Alberta Dachshund Rescue, stepped down from the position of President. At this time, the Board of ADR would like to express their deep gratitude and respect.

For the past seventeen years, Sheri has tirelessly laboured to find homes for displaced Dachshunds. Her positive impact, during that time, on the lives of dogs and people has been immense. Not only has she enriched the lives of many homeless dogs, but she has equally blessed the lives of many dogless people.

We, of the Board, have been additionally enriched by the experience of being a part of animal rescue. Sheri has built a fine, well-functioning, organization that could serve as a model for any management course.  Working within that association has enabled us to fully experience the joy of saving dogs without the internal tensions present in many volunteer groups.

Sheri, you may have relinquished the position of President at your own behest, but a position you cannot abdicate is the one you hold in our hearts: To us, you will always be our beloved Founder. Thanks.

Max and Buddy

These two are Buddy and Max. Buddy is on the left and Max on the right. They are a very bonded pair of Dachshund/ Lab/ Rottweiler crosses. They are 8.5 year old and are looking for a forever home. They are 35-40 lbs so a good size! They do have the long body and short legs of the dachshunds. They are crate trained, house broken, doggie door trained and love their walks. They are very affectionate and bonded to each other so must go as a pair. They are being fostered near Pine Lake, AB. For info about adoption contact info@albertadachshundrescue.com

There are no upcoming events right now.

About Us

Welcome to Alberta Dachshund Rescue. We are a group of dog lovers who focus their efforts on matching homeless dachshunds with families who will love them forever.

Many of the dogs coming into our care have been abandoned or otherwise mistreated. Some of them have been malnourished or have serious health issues. Others have — for good reason — developed a mistrust of humans. We provide veterinary care to bring them back to health and behavioral therapy to restore their faith in people before we offer them for adoption.

 We are a not-for-profit organization and have no paid employees. The funds; which come from donations, fund raising activities, and our modest adoption fee, are all expended directly on the dogs.

All the dogs offered for adoption have: been spayed/neutered; received all their vaccinations; had medical/dental issues addressed; received behavioral assessment/modification as required. If there are ongoing health or behavioral issues, these will be discussed with anyone interested in adopting the animal before adoption.

We always welcome more volunteers.  We can use volunteers from anywhere. If you'd like to help us rehome these little dogs, please email us. We'll send you a list of the things we need done in your area. Our most pressing need is for foster homes. Although we have kennel facilities available, we prefer to have the dogs that are awaiting adoption live with families. 

 We can guarantee is that adopting a homeless dachshund will bring immeasurable enrichment to your life. Thank you for considering  it!





 Thank you to all who have volunteered to foster; we are still looking for more foster homes so keep sending in those applications.  Keep watching for new dogs. We will post dogs that are looking for foster homes.
