About Our Rescue Group:

We are a non-profit organization staffed solely by volunteers devoted to the rescue of unwanted, abused, and homeless basset hounds in the Dallas, Texas area and surrounding regions. As we are funded entirely by donations from the public, the continuation of our work depends on the generosity of each one of you.

Bassets are rescued from shelters or received directly from owners who feel unable or unwilling to continue to care for them. The basset is placed in one of our organization's volunteer foster homes where it may be evaluated in terms of temperament and behavior. Medical conditions are addressed and all unaltered animals are spayed/neutered prior to being adopted by their new "forever families."

In conjunction with our rescue activities, educating the community regarding responsible and humane pet ownership is another aspect of our mission. This includes informing the public of the current pet overpopulation crisis, the benefits of spaying/neutering programs, and the dangers of irresponsible breeding.

Finally, our group is also focused on promoting a sense of community amongst those who are "owned" by a basset hound (or would like to be.) We are open to your suggestions for different activities and will plan future events based on attendees' feedback.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do not have a facility. All of our dogs are in private foster homes. Check our web site's home page often. It'll let you know which foster event we'll be attending next so you can see all the dogs. Our Web site is: www.bassetrescueacrosstexas.org.

Our Adoption Process:

All dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on shots, and given any type of treatment that is necessary for their well-being. They will be medically ready at the time of adoption. The average donation fee for adoptions is $200. Puppies are $250 and seniors are $150.

The first step in the process is to complete an Adoption Application. Upon receipt of your application, we take the following steps:
1. Call your vet(s) and landlord, if applicable, for reference checks.
2. Conduct a phone interview.
3. Perform a home visit. We require, if at all possible, all family members who need to be onboard with the new addtion be present at the home visit.
4. Upon approval, a meet-n-greet with your desired dog will be arranged at your home.

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.
