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

This cute boy is Quijote and much like Valentina is very sweet and loves people.  Quijote is already neutered, vetted and ready for adoption.



This is beautiful Valentina who is so, so sweet and just loves people.  She will be getting spayed on wed 10/21 and will ready for adoption soon!



Hopefully Zeus will have a new chance at life with us at Rescue but there is something wrong with his back leg and perhaps in need of some surgery or amputation we are afraid. He has been seen by an ortho specialist and being currently evaluated.  Before anything will be decided he is being treated for an infection on his leg first.



Now is your opportunity to submit your favorite photos of your beautiful rescue hound for a chance to be featured in the AHCA rescue calendar.  Afghan Hound Club of America Rescue wants to make your rescued Afghan a star! It’s time for our annual Rescue Calendar. We’re not afraid of the censors … most of our photo subjects will be nude!!! Please send us your pics and a brief bio of your baby.

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

Thank you to all our Volunteers!

There are not enough thank you’s to all the Volunteers and Sponsors who help AHRSC in so many different ways.  Fostering, Hound Hero sponsorship of a Rescue, Rescue pick-ups and transportation, Grooming, photography, raffles and much more…. Most special is to see these Rescues rehabilitated back to healthy Afghan Hounds with a beautiful life ahead of them now.
