About Us


The basset hounds we rescue come from a number of places and situations including shelters, owner surrenders, or unclaimed strays. Every incoming basset visits one of our veterinarians who offer discounts for their services to BHRA. While at the vet, the basset receives a full check-up, vaccinations, and heartworm test. Individual hounds are treated for heartworm if they are positive, as well as other medical challenges that may arise during their examination. After complete medical evaluation and treatment, each dog is placed in a loving foster home until a “furever home” can be found. The financial survival of BHRA is due solely to adoption fees (which, typically, do not cover vetting costs) and donations from the public. All funds received go strictly to the care and vetting of these precious hounds; no administrative fees are claimed.


“Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.”
