About Our Rescue Group:

North Texas Basset Hound Rescue, Inc. is dedicated to the welfare of basset hounds. We were founded in 1984 and later formed as a committee under The Basset Hound Club of Greater Fort Worth. In 1997, NTBHR was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in the State of Texas. In June of 1998, NTBHR was classified as a 501(c)3 Charitable Organization by the IRS, meaning your gifts to us are tax-deductible. Our Tax ID # is 75-2706935

North Texas Basset Hound Rescue is organized for the following purposes:

Prevent cruelty to animals, specifically basset hounds;
Support animal welfare by locating and retrieving homeless, unwanted and/or mistreated basset hounds;
Provide necessary funding for medical care, spaying and neutering, for unwanted and/or mistreated basset hounds; and
Place homeless, unwanted, and or mistreated canine basset hounds in permanent, loving homes.

The general area of rescue is the Fort Worth and Dallas area, but we also cover many shelters in North Texas from Abilene to Waco, Longview to the Oklahoma border. Money is spent to insure that the bassets are healthy, neutered or spayed, and treatment for heartworms. On occasion we must make the tough decision of euthanasia due to health problems or aggressive behavior. Rescue volunteers receive no compensation for their countless hours and transportation costs. NTBHR is very fortunate to have several veterinarians who provide excellent treatment at a reduced rate. The rewards of a rescue volunteer come from knowing that a basset is getting a second chance and from a slobbery lick and a wagging tail.

North Texas Basset Hound Rescue (NTBHR), an all-volunteer organization, rescued and re-homed 95 Basset Hounds in fiscal year 2014-15. All animals are given medical care including spay/neuter, heartworm treatment, dental care and micro-chipping. Providing information on spay/neuter programs, micro-chipping, and participating in responsible pet ownership events lets us achieve our goals of rescuing Basset Hounds and serving the community. Our goals for the current year are to increase our volunteer base, our foster care program, allowing us to rescue more Basset Hounds and to increase our fundraising to cover our increasing veterinary costs.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
