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 www.bhra.org
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.
