We serve the Southeastern United States.

About Our Rescue Group:

The Basset Rescue Crew of the Southeast (BaRCSE) was incorporated in 2009 in South Carolina. We received 501(c)3 non-profit status from the IRS in March 2010. We are entirely volunteer staffed and managed. Our goal is to become a multi-state rescue with volunteers and contacts throughout the Southeast that has the ability to safely transport and re-home needy basset hounds wherever they will find a loving home. Our focus will first and foremost be rescuing and providing necessary medical care to hounds who are in jeopardy of being euthanized. We will foster each hound and determine their unique personality; then our focus will be to find an appropriate, loving, forever home for each of our homeless bassets. We are also hoping to build a quality educational format to educate the public and potential basset hound owners about the unique personalities and needs of basset hounds along with educating the public about the necessity of spaying/neutering their pets.

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.
