If you live in New Jersey, lower New York, or eastern Pennsylvania and are seriously interested in Basset Hound adoption, then contact Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue.
This rescue organization is an all volunteer, non-profit corporation dedicated to finding homes for homeless Basset Hounds.
Most of the Basset Hounds that they care for have either been turned over to them by animal shelters throughout New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania and New York or have been surrendered by their previous owners. While the dogs are waiting to be adopted, they are cared for in foster homes, in commercial kennels if a foster home is unavailable, or with their original owners while waiting for placement.
Visit the Tri-State website for more details on 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.
