Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

OBR is committed to placing homeless Bloodhounds into permanent, loving homes as family companions. All Bloodhounds in our care are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, administered heartworm prevention, brought up to date on vaccinations and provided any necessary medical care.
They are placed in foster homes where their temperaments, personalities and needs are evaluated so that we can find the best possible match between each individual Bloodhound and their adoptive family.
Although the goal for all our adoptions is a lifetime commitment, we understand that sometimes circumstances beyond anyone’s control occur. OBR is committed to each Bloodhound for the remainder of their life and if, at any time and for any reason, the adoption does not work out, we require that the Bloodhound be returned to Ontario Bloodhound Rescue.

About Our Rescue Group:

Ontario Bloodhound Rescue (OBR) is a small, not-for-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to helping homeless and abandoned Bloodhounds, placing them in loving, approved homes across Ontario and neighbouring States.

Come Meet our Pets:

All of our Bloodhounds are located in foster homes throughout Ontario as well as some US states. Where each Bloodhound is fostered, is listed in their individual add. A submitted adoption application is required prior to meeting our adoptable dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption applications can be requested by email onbhrescue@yahoo.ca One of our volunteers will contact you to follow-up on your application. We have a small number of volunteers, so please be patient while we work on your application. OBR is committed to matching the right Bloodhound with the right family and we appreciate your patience. OBR reviews current applications on file for first consideration for the Bloodhounds we have available. If you would like to adopt a Bloodhound, please be sure to have your application on file.

All adoptive homes are required to go through a screening process that includes references and a home visit. An adoption fee is required to offset some of the costs incurred in caring for and re-homing each Bloodhound. OBR remains committed to each animal for the rest of their life and if, at any time and for any reason, the adoption does not work out, we require that the Bloodhound be returned to OBR.


Bloodhounds require A SECURELY FENCED YARD. Invisible/underground electric fences don't work on these dogs. They get on a scent and are totally oblivious to anything else around them.....including traffic. Bloodhounds don't tie or chain well either. They are fine for apartment living as long as they get enough exercise.
All of our dogs are adopted to be 'in-the-house' family members. Bloodhounds are not for everyone, they can't roam free and can't be walked off leash. Please research the breed prior to requesting an adoption application.

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.
