Dedicated to Finding Rescue Afghan Hounds
their Forever Homes 




Afghan Hound Rescue of So. California, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose purpose is to rescue stray, abandoned, relinquished and/ or impounded Afghan Hounds. Veterinary care is provided- prior to adoption according to the dog’s needs, always including spaying or neutering.

25% of dogs in shelters are purebred. Sadly, puppy-mills and pet stores who sell puppies contribute to pet overpopulation. Adoption is a very loving alternative to buying a puppy and it helps control the population of pets!

Since sight hounds in general and Afghan Hounds in particular, do not cope well in shelter and kennel environments, our dogs are placed in loving foster homes where their health and temperaments are evaluated. The dogs are then matched to appropriate new homes.  Learn More   


from ahrsc to you

If you have visited our site before please note that new rescues are posted often. We usually have Afghan Hounds of varying ages available for adoption.  In addition, please do not judge the Senior hounds as being too old.  Adult and Senior dogs are most always house trained, full of love and are just wanting to be given that chance to show you how special they can be. Many of the Senior hounds get over looked and will most likely live out their life at Rescue if not given a chance. It doesn’t have to be that way. Please contact us about additional information on any of the Rescues and consider giving a Senior dog a chance along with the younger ones. A very big thank you to all the people who support Afghan Hound Rescue of So. California. Without you, these beautiful Afghan Hound Rescues would not know the love they have now.

become a hound hero! 


A very big, heartfelt thanks to the people who currently adopted some of our senior dogs. Thank you for seeing their potential, thank you for loving them and we know they will thank you in return with a multitude of unconditional love and devotion. There are currently additional senior dogs at Rescue and if you can’t adopt please consider becoming a Hound Hero and Sponsoring one.  A Hero is someone who changes anyone’s life in a positive way!  Make a difference in an Afghan Hound Rescue’s life!  Our Sponsorship Program allows an individual who is unable to adopt at this time the opportunity to become A “Hound Hero” by making a financial donation towards a particular adoptable’s care. Thanks to all of you from all of us.  Become a Hound Hero!   Learn More
