||AADR is a Non-Profit 501(C)(3) that works tirelessly with volunteers to save homeless dachshunds and place them into loving forever families.
Our Mission Statement
"A DOG IS FOR LIFE, NOT JUST FOR CHRISTMAS"
This is the slogan for Dog's Trust in the United Kingdom. We think it is as applicable here. The longstanding campaign
by Dog's Trust aims to raise awareness of the consequences of treating dogs as gifts or toys. Their website says: "Every year hundreds
of thousands of children plead for the latest fad or top toy on the market, only to discard them a few weeks after Christmas
when the novelty wears off. Unfortunately, the same perception is also apparent with dogs. We are continually seeking to change
this." We at AADR join with them in this effort. AADR does not approve adoptions for gifts. So many of our animals were probably already
gifted once and now find themselves in rescue needing a forever home after being discarded. ~ AADR Board of Directors
A Family's Tale
Tom and Mandi with Twinkle and Flash
Sometimes there are just those really special stories.
This is one of those stories. Spark and Twinkle came
into AADR and life at the same time! Their mom, Sparkle,
was rescued from a shelter and within 24 hours, AADR
had 10 puppies from their newest canine!

!Congratulations to these Pups who got Furever Homes!
These are our "featured" Dachshunds! All of our dogs are special, but we hope you will take an extra look at these dogs seeking a forever home! Don't let distance be an obstacle for a dog you would consider. We have networks of volunteers that in many cases can help get a friend to your (and their) home (up and down the east coast especially). Give us a chance to try to help!
Hi, I am Bubby. I am an older gentleman who came into this thing they call rescue 2 1/2 months ago. Shortly after I got here, my back was hurting some, but with some crate rest and simple medication, I got better. I get around fine, but I will need to be with someone that understands that watching my weight is important and I don't need too much jumping and stair climbing. Those are really just precautions, you know how people get all worked up sometimes. Actually, those rules sound good to me, being an older gentleman, the only jumping I need to do is toward my food dish or onto my pillow!
I get along ok with other dogs but squirrels and cats need to fear me! I am ready to hunt! I love a good nap in my crate, it is one of my favorite times in the day, you know what they say, "Let sleeping dogs lie". I also love walks! The sight of my harness for walking is one of my favorite times of the day. I tend to favor one person in a house, that doesn't mean I don't like others, but right now my foster dad is my best friend. When he comes home, it is one of my favorite times of the day! And lets not forget meal times, they are one of my favorite times of the day. And cuddling up on the couch for some quiet time -- one of my favorite times of the day! Know what, I have a lot of favorite times! But, my all time favorite time will be when you and I meet and I get to call you mine! I can't wait for that!
Hi, my name is Scooter and I am interviewing for my forever home. I had a forever home and things were so grand there. Unfortunately, my person had something happen to them. People said they went to a better place. I don't know where that is, but I wish they would have taken me too. They said one day I will see them again, I can't wait.
I am a sweet girl. I have gotten to go to a few events and I enjoy meeting people. I really try hard to be a good girl. My foster home has a doggy door and they say I am a champ at it. I can adjust to whatever, as long as I have people to hang out with. I love my foster mommy, I like to just hang out with her and make sure she is ok. I am there to help do whatever, especially if by chance any cheese needs to be cleaned off the floor. It would be really nice to have a warm lap and blanket to curl up with in time for Christmas.

All American Dachshund Rescue is expanding throughout the country and is in desperate need of help in each and every state except for CT, RI and MA(laws in those states will not let us have foster homes unless we are approved by the Dept. of Ag and their rules are too numerous to fulfill). If you would be interested in helping to save dachshund's lives, there are a number of ways you can help.

Looking For a Dachshund to Add to Your Family?
We have dogs that are not yet listed on the website. If we don't currently have "your" special dog, consider filling out an application anyway. We will process your application so you will be pre-approved when your special dog does come in. This way, you won't have to wait when you see the dachshund you want and he or she will be in your home before you know it!
If you don't see any dachshunds in your exact location, don't let that discourage you! We have members and supporters all over the country who allow us to have a wonderful volunteer transport system. We will make our best effort to work with you on getting that special dachshund as close to you as possible!
If you've come to our site because you believe you must surrender your dachshund, please click here for more information about how we can help you.
