We rescue homeless Basset Hounds throughout the state of Ohio

About Our Rescue Group:

Ohio Basset Hound Rescue Inc. (OBR) is an all volunteer organization dedicated to helping the homeless hounds of Ohio

Our volunteer network spans to the four corners of Ohio. Our funds come solely through donations and fundraisers. OBR does not have a shelter of its own. Our “shelter” exists through our foster families that open their hearts and homes to a hound in need.

Once these homeless hounds are with OBHR, the dog is then given all necessary medical attention – all vaccinations (including bordatella, rabies & distemper series combination); heartworm test – monthly preventative is given if the dog tests negative, treatment for the disease is given if they test positive; spay/neuter – to prevent more hounds from facing as uncertain of a future; and any other needed medical treatment.

These hounds are then placed in foster care, so long as there is a foster home open and ready to take them in.
Whether it is dinnertime manners, proper behavior techniques, or social housebreaking skills – OBHR foster homes do it all. These homeless hounds remain in foster care or in a boarding kennel (if a foster home is unavailable) until a forever home can be found for them.

Our Adoption Process:

Potential adopters are required to complete and submit an adoption application as the first step in the adoption process. The adoption application can be printed out directly from OBHR’s Web site or submitted on line at http://www.ohiobassetrescue.org/Appl.html.

OBHR adoption applications will not be processed if the form is not completed in full, or if the application does not contain the signatures of both the applicant and their spouse / significant other. The information provided in the adoption application will help us find the best hound for you and your family. We will check with your veterinarian as to the consistency in the level of care that your current animals receive. We also will check with your landlord (if you rent the property on which you reside) to verify that you are permitted to have an animal at your residence.

Potential adopters will not be permitted to set up a meeting with a rescue dog in a foster home until they have an approved application with Ohio Basset Hound Rescue. Once the potential adopter has an approved application, then arrangements will be made to have them meet with the rescue dog at the foster home.

A minimum donation of – dogs under 1 year $250.00 - for dogs 1 – 8 yrs. old – $200.00 for dogs 8 years and older $100.00 , is required and will be payable at the time of adoption and is not refundable. OBR reserves the right to change the adoption donation without prior notice on the OBR web site or applications.

The adopting family also will be will be required to sign an adoption contract at the time of the adoption. All dogs are spayed/neutered; inoculated (includes rabies, bordatella vaccinations, distemper series combination), heartworm tested and kept on monthly heartworm preventative prior to adoption. This is the basic care that each hound receives. If any additional medical treatment/attention is needed, OBR will provide that to the hound at the direction of our veterinarians (ie. Dental, heartworm treatment for those who test positive, deworming, etc.)

Please note that OBHR Adoption Applications may take 7 – 10 business days to process. Potential adopters will be contacted by a collect telephone call with the status of their application, once the application has been processed and reviewed.

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.
