Rescue groups for specific breeds of dogs come and go. The extent to which these groups focus on senior dogs varies, too. We try to keep updated on the following list of breed rescue groups that have a special focus on seniors. If you don’t find the breed you’re looking for here, use a search engine (e.g., google.com) and a search term such as: “name of breed + rescue.” Another good option is the Petfinder site .
Remember, also, that your local animal shelter and all-breed, all-age rescues often have purebred dogs come their way, so it’s a good idea to let those folks know what you’re looking for.

Some of the Dachshunds accepted into the program have had a good life, but have fallen on hard times because their human has passed away or because they’ve escaped their yard and become lost. But some of the Dachshunds have been abused, abandoned and neglected and require time and patience to bring them back to happy, healthy, loving pets.

All Texas Dachshund Rescue is a group of dedicated volunteers whose primary goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home neglected, abandoned, disabled and otherwise endangered Dachshunds throughout the state of Texas. We rescue dachshunds in the Austin, Dallas / Fort Worth, Houston & San Antonio metroplexes, as well as in surrounding areas including Abilene, Beaumont, Corpus Christi, Longview, Midland and San Angelo. We are a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization. As most groups, we rely heavily on donations and contributions which are vital for keeping up with our vet expenses.

Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas is an all volunteer group in the heart of Texas that is dedicated to the health, welfare and happiness of our Dachshund friends. We are based in Kerrville, Texas, but service all of San Antonio and the surrounding areas. Our volunteers come from San Antonio, Kerrville, and other parts of Central Texas. We are a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization. As such, we must rely heavily on donations and contributions, which are a necessity in order to continue to be able to pay the costs of health care, administrative needs, and other necessary expenses for each of our Dachshunds. Diamond Dachshund has rescued, rehabilitated and placed approximately one hundred Dachshunds each year since our incorporation in 1998. This number has continued to climb each each year, now reaching close to 200 or more. That’s a lot of happy, healthy dogs and equally happy families! We strive to find the right home for each dog’s individual personality and needs, so that the placement is permanent and both the dogs and the humans who adopt them, are equally happy.

Doberman Rescue of New England Doberman Rescue Unlimited
Since its founding in 1988, Doberman Rescue Unlimited, a non-profit rescue organization, has helped over 1,200 homeless Doberman Pinschers. Why so many? Death, divorce, relocation, abandonment, and landlord problems are some of the most common reasons. Many who are rescued suffer from the effects of abuse and reglect; too many are in poor or life-threatening condition. Most are rehabilitated; only a handful cannot be saved. Medical care and careful screening before placement of a rescued dog are very important to the dog’s welfare. Each animal taken in by DRU is examined by a veterinarian, treated, if necessary, vaccinated, and tested for heartworm. All DRU animals are spayed or neutered. Pending placement, the dogs are kept in foster homes or are boarded at various facilities in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Each dog is carefully evaluated before placement. Doberman Rescue Unlimited does not turn away other breeds or other animals and works closely with other rescue organizations. Doberman Rescue Unlimited, Inc., 52 Tenney Rd., Sandown, NH 03873. Hotline (leave a message): (603) 887-1200. E-mail: Doberman@dru.org Senior and Special Needs Dobermans
Statement from the organization: We are an organization of people with a common goal of helping senior and special needs Dobermans. That need may be financial or it may be only information and/or moral support for the owner of a Doberman with a serious illness or injury. We will also aid in rehoming and fostering senior Dobermans. These Dobermans may be shelter rescues or they may already be much loved companions with a special need. Financial aid may be through donations or through avenues such as online auctions. Every precaution will be taken to assure that the need is real. English Springer Spaniel:

A statement from Jim Dascoli, President: “In November 2014, Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary (New Jersey) began our mission to help rescue and re-home adult and senior German Shepherd and mixes in New Jersey and surrounding areas. During the five years I served as President of Garden State German Shepherd Rescue, the percentage of senior dogs rescued by GSGSR increased from 7% of total dogs placed, to 24% of total dogs placed. For me it was only natural that whatever I did following my time as President of GSGSR, I would focus on senior and adult dogs. Sedona Shepherd Sanctuary has two primary goals: to help rescue and find homes for adult and senior German Shepherd dogs in need throughout New Jersey and to help support other rescue and shelter organizations in the Northeast finding homes for German Shepherd dogs that wish to work with us. Today we are a virtual sanctuary, working as a foster based rescue and partnering with other rescue organizations to find forever homes. Someday we hope to have our own facility, but until then we are always looking for foster homes to help save a good dog’s life. We would like to be listed on your website so that adopters looking to foster or adopt a senior dog will know about us. If you have any questions or need any additional information or references please let me know. We are a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit organization listed with the New Jersey Division of charities.” Adoption area includes: New Jersey, Delaware Valley, Manhattan, Eastern Pennsylvania and Northern New York.

Rat Terrier — Nationwide:
New Rattitude is a nationwide, all-volunteer rescue group for Rat Terriers and Rat Terrier mixes. In private foster homes, abandoned, abused, neglected, sick, or unwanted Rat Terriers are nurtured, socialized, trained, supported medically, and provided with professional veterinary care while we work diligently to find them new and permanent adoptive homes where they will be safe, loved, and properly and humanely cared for the rest of their lives. Adopting a senior dog through New Rattitude comes with special advantages. Because each of foster dog lives in a home setting, we have the chance to learn about the dog’s personality and any health issues. We take the time to make all of our foster dogs, seniors included, healthy from their teeth to their toes, so we can give an accurate picture of the dog you are interested in.
