Come Meet our Pets:

We try to hold an adoption days at a PetSmart or PetCo location. Annually in April or May we have the Basset Bash at Oak Mountain State Park, Al. This is our major fundraising effort and is a "homecoming" of sorts for the bassets. Folks who adopted in the past travel to AL from all over just to be a part of the fun, food, and festivities. Watch for all events to be posted on our website at

Our Adoption Process:

When a hound comes in it is medically evaluated and treated and all shots given, spay/neuter as necessary. Then they are placed in an approved foster home until an adoption application is received. The adopting home is visited by a volunteer and a report provided to the Adoption Coordinator who makes the final decision.
Once approved, transport is set up and the hound travels to the new home. A follow-up is usually done on the adoption about 30-60 days out. The adoption fee runs $175-$275 depending on the age of the hound.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
