ABOUT AHRSC

Afghan Hound Rescue of Southern California, Inc. is a 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

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 Southern California. Without you, these beautiful Afghan Hound Rescues would not know the love they have now.

RESCUE SUCCESS STORY for Zoey, now Pandora

SUCCESS STORY: Remember Zoey from the Magnificent Seven hoarding rescue a few years ago? She was only in rescue a couple of months before she went off to her fabulous new home in Arizona. She is now Pandora and owned by Julie and Dave Jenkins. She has a fuzzy family too, a saluki, a GSD and another afghan. She is loved beyond measure. Just look at her now

RESCUE SPOTLIGHT Faith!

From her Mom and the Love she has for!  Just in case anyone ever wonders “why bother?”. Anyone who knows and loves this sweet, beautiful, fabulous girl would understand why rescue is so very important. Thank you, hats off and love to you Rita Kao and crew, and Afghan Hound Rescue Southern California for saving this most wonderful girl and all the others you have saved. ♥  Faith today after the immense efforts of a golden crew.  2018 and Faith is now modeling, loving life at home and on the cover of Harpers Bazaar!  She is still a silly, goofy, crazy fun girl who has stolen our hearts. We adopted her in December 2014, just shortly after she arrived from Taiwan rescued from a horrible puppymill situation.  Meet Faith before and after. Her full story and video is in in Stories of the heart. CLICK HERE
