New Rescues Updated:11/30/2018  

        We only adopt our Rescues out to the West Coast

If you have visited our site before please note that new rescues are posted often.  AHRSC Rescue currently has quite a few Afghan Hounds who are 5 yrs and up. Please do not judge these beautiful hounds as being too old as they are most always house trained, full of love and just wanting to be given that chance of their lifetime to call a home their own. Many of the senior hounds also get looked over and 8 – 11 yr olds 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 give an adult dog a chance.  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.


from her Mom and the love she has for her

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








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. We are currently adopting out to only the West Coast states.

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!     Learn More 


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.
