Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
OBR is committed to placing homeless Bloodhounds into permanent, loving homes as family companions. All Bloodhounds in our care are spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, are on heartworm prevention, up to date on vaccinations and provided any necessary medical care.
Our Bloodhounds are placed in a foster home where their temperaments, personalities and needs are evaluated so that we can find the best possible match between each individual Bloodhound and their adoptive home.
OBR remains committed to each Bloodhound for the rest of its 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.
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.
