BRAT has been trying so hard to get Payton well after a diagnosis of histoplasmosis, a fungal infection of her colon. The specialist thinks she got this disease by eating contaminated soil as food when she was running the streets as a stray. BRAT spent close to $4,000 trying to figure out what was wrong. Then from Sept 1st to Nov 30, we've spent another $8,150 on the specialist who diagnosed her correctly. 

 So we desperately need your help in continuing her treatment through February. 

 She is costing us around $450 per week or $1800 per month. It was more in Sept and Oct due to testing. But starting in Nov it has been around $1800 per month. Some weeks may be more due to meds.

 How can you help? There are 3 ways to donate:

1. PayPal or credit card to Put Payton in the Note section. 

 2. Call the vet directly. Tell them it's for Payton with BRAT. The name of the hospital is Veterinary Specialists of North Texas. Their number is 972-437-9499. 

 3. Mail a check to:


PO Box 116225

 Thank you so much for helping Payton! We will give you updated reports as we continue her treatments. She has good days, then days where she's too tired to walk so she gets to ride in her buggy like a queen in her carriage!

About Basset Rescue Across Texas, Inc.

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.

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:

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.
