Hey there, folks! My name is Kletus and this is my favorite gal Buttons — pleasure to meet you!


We just came out to California and boy are we happy to be here. You see, our owner surrendered us, but we were lucky enough to hop on the Hound Haul and make our way out West!


We are both on the smaller side at around 40 pounds, so perfect for snuggling. I (Kletus) am the big brother in our family at 6 or 7 years old, and my beloved gal pal Buttons is about 5 years young.


We are getting our heartworm kicked at the vet’s office, but we are ready to meet you and hopefully find our forever home!


Buttons is spayed, Kletus is neutered, and both are microchipped and up to date on vaccines.  Their joint adoption fee is $600.


About Basset Hound Rescue of Southern California

About Our Rescue Group...

Basset Hound Rescue of Southern California (BHRSC) offers sanctuary, healing and forever families to distressed, abandoned, injured or homeless hounds.

The hounds we rescue are placed in foster homes (or boarded, if no foster homes are available). We seek loving homes where they will spend their remaining years cuddling, eating, drooling, resting, playing, and socializing with people and other family pets.

We work to raise funds to save as many hounds as possible and constantly thrive to grow our network of volunteers and foster homes.

BHRSC takes in more than 100 hounds per year! With the down economy many families are losing their homes and having to relinquish their hounds. Shelters are full and rescues across the country are suffering. Many are overflowing and unable to take in hounds while others are closing their doors completely. Your support is more important than ever during this tough time.

We do charge an adoption fee when you adopt a hound from us to help defray the costs of vet care and other expenses for these hounds.
