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.
Educating the public about the pros and cons of the bloodhound breed is another priority. Bloodhounds are a special breed and are not for everyone. We are strong advocates of spay/neuter programs. All other dogs and cats in the adoptive home must be spayed or neutered unless there is a verifiable reason for them not to be altered.
All rescues are placed in foster homes are routinely provided proper vaccinations, spayed or neutered, heartworm tested and, given monthly heartworm prevention. They are also micro-chipped. Any injuries or obvious health conditions are also addressed. If the dog is heartworm positive, this treatment is scheduled per the recommendation of the attending veterinarian. The TBSR foster evaluates the temperament of each rescue. It is our goal to determine if the bloodhound exhibits normal bloodhound behavior and will co-exist well with adults, children, other bloodhounds and possibly cats.
Matching the right bloodhound with the right home is our goal. TBSR utilizes our collective experience and knowledge of both the bloodhound and the prospective future home in order to make the best placement possible. All bloodhounds are evaluated for their potential in Search and Rescue work. If the bloodhound possesses the right attributes for SAR, we then try to place the bloodhound in a working home.
TSBR offers it support and advice on issues of behavior, health and training before and after adoption. We routinely do follow-ups after adoption to ensure that all if going well.
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.
