Afghan Hound Rescue Central Ohio Morgan's Market
Afghan Hound Rescue Central Ohio is a 501 (3) c organization. We are an independent organization operating under the approved guidelines of, and in cooperation with the Afghan Hound Club of America Rescue. The group was founded in 1997 by Maureen Anderson. By the end of 2018 we have rescued and rehomed over 300 afghan hounds.
In 2018 Maureen retired to Southern Georgia however AHRCO continues under Maureen's leadership with the help of dedicated volunteers.
Morgan was my first rescued afghan hound. She came to me in February 1983 from the animal shelter after surviving on the streets of Hollywood, California for several weeks. She was a senior girl who brought a calmness to my wild 1 year old afghan hound. In 1986 she was diagnosed with Canine Pericardial Mesothelioma. She fought a hard battle but succumbed to the disease after 6 months. We name our store in her honor. Funds from the sales on Morgan's Market go toward expenses for rescued afghan hounds.
Products sold in Morgan's Market are handmade by experienced seamstresses who donate their time to benefit those in need.
