Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
WMBRI evaluates the temperament of each dog that comes into their care. If any hound displays a temperament that is unacceptable, WMBRI will rehabilitate the dog in order to prepare it for a successful adoption.
WMBRI seeks prospective adopters by advertising on their webpage; word of mouth; at public events; and on Petfinder at PetFinder.com We evaluate each prospective adopter to determine their preparedness for adopting a Basset Hound. Once an applicant is approved and matched with an appropriate basset hound, WMBRI transfers ownership of the dog to the approved adopter and provides them with continuing support and education throughout the life of the Basset Hound.
WMBRI also provides education to the general public on the basic care, training, characteristics and traits of their canine companions, in particular those of the Basset Hound Breed.
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.
