All of Northern Califonia from Monterey/Carmel/Modesto north to the Oregon border and also into the Reno/Sparks Nevada area

About Our Rescue Group:

Golden Gate Basset Rescue rescues Basset Hounds from abusive, abandoned and unwanted situations across the whole of Northern California. We were formed in 2005 after operating for nearly ten years under the Northern California Basset Hound Club.

Today, Golden Gate Basset Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization. We exist solely on donations.

Golden Gate Basset Rescue takes orphaned bassets into foster care, usually in volunteer homes, where they are loved and cared for until permanent, forever homes are found. We provide veterinary care, which includes > necessary vaccinations, spaying and neutering, heartworm, flea and tick prevention.

Our wonderful volunteers spend time with the dogs to evaluate them, deal with any behavioral issues, and restore them to full health with good food and love.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have a specific kennel or shelter location to take our dogs to. We are so widespread that we just go from foster home to forever home.

Our Adoption Process:

All of our paperwork is on our website. (http://www.ggbassetrescue.org/info/adoption) but we expect an application form, a home check visit, possible reference check and an adoption donation. All this helps to ensure that the right basset hound is chosen for you, to match your lifestyle and circumstances, as you will become a "forever" home!

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.
