||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
Dachshund House Dreams
Starting on May 1, 2014, All American Dachshund Rescue will be auctioning off a number of fun and unique items to bid on to raise money for our organization - and the more items we have the more money we can raise, so we're asking for your help.
One of the concerns of many involved in AADR is the viability of AADR long term. Our intake is one of the largest hurdles that we have as an organization -- getting animals into our care, vetted, and then disbursed to all of the wonderful fosters that we have across many states. How do we move from being centered around one person/home and ensure that we are positioned strategically to continue the mission that we consider so vital for the Dachshund community.
A wonderful opportunity has been presented to AADR through the generosity of a family involved in AADR. We have been offered a long term (100 year) lease on a portion of property to have an intake/care facility constructed. This would provide for a long term plan for animal intake and would be offset somewhat by what we would save over current kenneling expenses we are often hit with due to intake requirements.
Part of realizing this dream is to raise funds for the construction of the building and necessary furnishings. We want to do this without diverting any of our current operational funding. While we see this facility as a vital part of our future, we can't sacrifice any animals needing us today for that dream, it just isn't how we work.
Proceeds from this auction will help kickstart our fund drive for The Dachshund Home. This will ensure AADR will be there for Dachshunds for years to come! Join with us in dreaming this dream! Our dogs, even those not born yet, are depending on you!

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!
This is Misty. Usually, we try to write these from the dogs perspective. However, Misty is a little shy and asked me to go ahead and write this for her. Misty was found wandering around in Clarksville, TN. They couldn't find her owner and reached out to us here at AADR. We took in Misty and we want to get her into the right home for her.
We believe Misty had a very rough start to life. She probably was not well socialized and she does what is called "submissive peeing". This is common in puppies, but most outgrow it. It is a dog's way of showing they submit to the pack leader. However, in adult dogs it can mean they weren't well socialized or were abused. We aren't sure which for sure, but sadly we suspect it was she was not treated well. She really needs someone who can help her gain trust in people and herself.
Misty was also recently diagnosed with Addison's disease. It is actually a disease that people can have as well. Not to worry, it is not contagious, it is actually genetic. She will need to be on some simple medications and have routine bloodwork to check her some levels to ensure the dosing is effective. Addison's is highly treatable and there is no reason this girl can't live a long healthy life.
So, the bottom line -- we are looking for a special home to step up for this girl. Some might think she has two strikes against her, but we don't believe she has struck out. Misty just needs a bit of help getting to the point she is the companion dog she can be for that special someone. As part of her timid nature, she needs to be crated/contained when left alone, that may improve as she gains confidence, but it will be a work. We do believe there is a heart out there big enough for Misty and we hope you consider her!

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).

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!
