Hester's Story...
HESTER (M, Bassett Hound around 3-4 years old, 31 lbs), was picked up as a stray. Hester is very sweet, loves people and gets along with other dogs. If Hester is not reclaimed by his owner, he can be rescue or adopted, 9/26.
Volunteer notes 9-24: I enjoyed my visit with Hester. He does not have a kennel mate but watches curiously and peacefully the dogs in the neighboring kennels as if to say "what are you all barking about?"

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Hester, a Henderson Basset Hound dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Basset Hound for sale in Henderson, or seeking a Basset Hound dog from a breeder in Henderson.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Henderson already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Henderson breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Basset Hound breeders who help with Basset Hound rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Henderson paves the way for another one to be saved.
