More photos of Elvis coming soon but this sweet senior boy is in need of a home. He was an owner give up to a local shelter because he was no longer wanted. He is vaccinated, wormed, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative. He is shy at first but warms up nicely. Elvis also had a dental once with us.
Our normal adoption fee is $300 but this can be reduced some due to his age. He is around 12 years old. He is still in New Orleans with our rescue but can be transported up to Putnam, CT for an additional $185 using Rescue Road Trips.
We check vet references and do home visits prior to an adoption. Please email QueenB534@aol.com for more information.

From Mike, Elvis' foster Dad:

He's a sweet boy who is always smiling. He loves taking long walks and is still as sprightly as a young boy. When he thinks I'm not looking he likes to sneak up onto my bed for a nap but is otherwise a well mannered gentleman. When getting ready for walks he gets super excited and starts howling and hopping around.

About Looziana Basset Rescue, Inc. - Louisiana Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Looziana Basset Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit volunteer effort to save abandoned and mistreated basset hounds for the love of the breed. Our rescued bassets are from shelters all over Louisiana and Mississippi, are strays whose owners cannot be found, or are relinquished by owners who no longer want them. Changing lifestyles, the economy, and lack of responsibility are some of the reasons for the abundance of abandoned basset hounds.

Looziana Basset Rescue takes the orphaned bassets into foster care, where they are loved and cared for until permanent adoptive homes can be found. We provide veterinary care that includes vaccinations, heartworm treatment if necessary, and spaying or neutering. We completely rehabilitate, both physically and emotionally, any adoptable dog and prepare him/her for a "forever home."

Come Meet Our Pets...

To ensure that you and the pet you select are ideal for each other, we'll give you some time after the introduction to think about it.

As of March 2012 our adoption fee is $300. This includes spay/neuter, all shots, fecal and worming, microchip, heartworm test and treatment, if necessary, and all other veterinary care that is needed. The average amount that we invest in each dog is around $900, so this is quite a bargain. Looziana Basset Rescue has an extensive adoption process as well as adoption agreement.
