If you live in Arizona and are seriously interested in Basset Hound adoption, then contact Arizona Basset Hound Rescue (AZBHR).
AZBHR is a non-profit organization located in Phoenix, AZ that is dedicated to finding new homes for Arizona's homeless Basset Hounds. Additionally, the rescue cares for and places Bloodhounds and Basset Hound mixes.
A state-wide network of volunteers enables AZBHR to provide adoptions to the entire state of Arizona.
Many of their rescued hounds come from pounds or shelters. Others are strays whose owners cannot be found. Some have been surrendered by previous owners who no longer want them.
While a dog is waiting to be adopted, he is given all necessary medical attention and is cared for in a foster home.
Visit the organization's website for more details about their Basset Hound adoption procedures and available dogs.
Before filling out that application...
Make sure that you have seriously considered the implications of owning a dog, specifically a Basset Hound.
Each rescue dog has already experienced the loss of a home and worse yet some may have been abused or neglected. Therefore, it's not difficult to understand why rescue organizations have the best interests of their dogs in mind. When considering potential homes, a rescue organization looks for compatible adopters willing to provide not only a loving home but also a long-term commitment for the life of the dog.
