My life has completely changed. I had a very comfortable and loving home. I was happy. Then my humans got older and had health issues. They had to move to a living center where they'll get the help they need. Sadly, I couldn't go with them. So my life has completely changed. I'm looking for a new forever home. Is that you???
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.
Come Meet Our Pets...
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: www.bassetrescueacrosstexas.org.
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.
