Bassett Hound Rescue Group and Your Next Family Pet

Mar 20, 2008
There is a group of people that work hard, most times for no pay, to catch the Bassett Hounds that fall through the cracks of life and it is these people that make up The Bassett Hounds Rescue Organization. If you want a wonderful family pet you should consider looking to this group of dedicated people. They can help. They are the premier group that specializes in saving and adopting out Bassett Hounds in the United States and in some other counties of the world.

The Bassett Hound Rescue Organization is made up of people that give of their time to make sure that Bassett Hounds are not left out in the cold, literally. They were founded to rescue, rehabilitate and place Bassett Hounds that have been given up or abandoned.

The organization is not setup to judge why the dogs are in this situation but to help the Bassett Hounds recover from it. Their aim is to expedite the rescue of Bassett Hounds by assessing an incoming dog, providing interim foster care when needed and then re-homing the dog with a new individual or family that matches the dogs needs.

They want these adoptions to be life long, and take it very seriously! To accomplish this goal they rely heavily on qualified foster volunteers.

The dog may need transportation to a vet during the foster stay plus grooming as is required. Most importantly, the dog will need human attention to minimize the stress of the adjustment to this new environment and during this time of transition.

Some rescue groups will have experienced volunteers to treat the dogs brought in and others will have a vet they work with to examine dogs entrusted to their care. After the health of the dog is established and their needs are assessed, he or she is matched with an available foster home.

After the Bassett Hounds are placed in the foster home, every attempt is made to make the Bassett Hounds feel comfortable and secure until a new home can be found. An adoption profile is often used to match the needs and requirements of the dog with those of the potential adopting family.

Each organization has its own set of rules for adoption and there usually is some sort of contract that formalizes the agreement. Each group may have varying guidelines but they usually include at least something like the following:

1.The dog is to be housed inside at night and may be outside during the day provided there is a place to protect them from the elements.

2.It is strongly suggested that the Bassett Hounds have a fenced yard not only for their enjoyment but for their safety.

3.If there is a swimming pool it must be fenced as Bassett Hounds tend to have trouble navigating in a pool and may drowned.

4.If the dog ever has to be given up again, he will be returned to the rescue unless the subsequent new family is approved by the Bassett Hounds Rescue Organization.

Every potential adopting family is encouraged to make sure this breed of dog is right for their lifestyle. They are not disposable objects. This animal relies on you for their total existence and it is important that that trust be fulfilled.

If you have made it this far in this document you must surly have some interest in these beautiful dogs. If you decide a Bassett Hound is the dog for you then think of adopting through your regional rescue organization.
