Alberta Dachshund Rescue (ADR) is a non-profit organization with the purpose of rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing dachshunds in need. We are a network of experienced rescue people with a strong representation across the province. We envision a time when every dachshund in Alberta has a loving home for its entire life.
Alberta Dachshund Rescue was founded in 1999 by Sheri Rose with a vision to provide a brighter future to dachshunds in need. Over ADR's history, we have placed many dogs into loving, forever homes. In 2017 / 2018 alone, 110 dachshunds were surrendered to ADR and made their way to a new home. That is a lot of dachshunds!
We believe that there is a home somewhere for every dachshund that we foster. Some may just take a little longer to find!
Alberta Dachshund Rescue has never said no to someone who has to surrender their dachshund. We will do our best to support and work with an owner to help them find a way to keep their dog, but when it comes down to the bottom line, we will always take a dog in. ADR has had some tough cases - dogs that were literally on their last legs and with little hope - but with the phenomenal support we receive from supporters of ADR, almost all of our dogs have been able to go on to find their forever homes.
We appreciate every single person who chooses to adopt a dog, whether it is from us or another rescue. There are so many beautiful dogs out there just waiting for that forever home.
We encourage and support adoption from rescues and we thank you for supporting Alberta Dachshund Rescue!
