Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
We serve the Southern Nevada area. We do not normally place our rescues outside of this area, but will refer out-of-area applicants to a Basset rescue nearer to them.
We are a rescue devoted to the Basset Hound breed. We are a small, non-profit (501c-3), all-volunteer group of people who have the desire to help this breed that we love. We take in bassets from shelters, bassets lost and not reclaimed, and directly from owners who must relinquish them. Our rescue then evaluates for health and temperment. We screen potential adopters to try to make the best possible placement for hound and family. All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date with vaccines, and vet checked before adoption. If for any reason an adoption does not work out we take the basset back into our rescue.
Come Meet our Pets:
All of our Bassets are in foster homes. After someone puts in an application we will then take the basset they wish to see for a home visit in their home. From time to time we do set up at area Petsmarts to showcase a few bassets and hand out our information. However, we are unable to do adoptions directly from a Petsmart or other event, as we must have a completed application and the above mentioned home visit--before placement. Any upcoming events will be posted on our website. Please visit our website to read about all the wonderful Bassets that we have. They each have a story to tell!
Our Adoption Process:
We require an application, which is located on our website. Volunteers then go over the application and any vet references that the applicants has listed. A phone call to the applicants is made to talk about which basset might be right for their family situation. A home visit will then be scheduled. We do require a signed adoption contract. Our fees can vary, but usually are as follows: Dogs under the age of 2 years are $250. Dogs 2 years old and up are $150. Seniors (over the age of 10 years) are usually $100. Special needs dogs' adoption fees are negotiable.
