Welcome to the Alberta Dachshund Rescue!

We are a group of dog lovers who focus our efforts on matching dachshunds who need homes with families who will love them forever.  

Some of the dogs coming into our care have been abandoned or 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. And some of our dachshunds are coming from loving homes, from owners with circumstances that have changed and prevent them from keeping them any longer.

Make a donation!

We are a not-for-profit organization and have no paid employees. Our funds (which come from donations, fund raising activities, and our modest adoption fee) all go directly to the dogs. 

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

Please consider making a donation!

Volunteer with ADR!

We can always use volunteers! 

If you'd like to help us re-home 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.
