Adoption Information

All of us at All Bassets Cherished Basset Hound Rescue, Inc. (ABCBHR, Inc.) thank you for your interest in adopting a basset hound from us. Please read this information carefully as it will help you understand what you can expect from us and what we expect from you.

The first step in the process is to complete an Adoption Application. To be considered to adopt any basset, an application MUST be submitted.

The fee for an adoption through ABCBHR, Inc. is:
up to 1 year $400 for a basset mix, $450 for full basset
1 year $400
2-3 years $350
4-7 years $325
8-10 years $250
11 and up $200

After we have received your completed application, we will contact you and arrange for a “home visit”. ABCBHR, Inc. requires that a member of our group visit your home to ensure that it is basset friendly and a suitable home for a basset. We ask that when the home check is conducted, all members of your family are present. This visit will enable us to ensure that your home will be a loving, comfortable, and permanent placement for a rescued Basset Hound.

When completing the application, please be sure to include your Veterinarians name, address and phone number. We will need to contact your Vet for a reference to ensure that your current/past pets receive all necessary vaccinations, heartworm preventative and appropriate medical attention.

After the application has been received and references have been checked, we will contact you regarding choosing the basset that we feel would be suitable for your home. Not every basset will be the right one. Through our foster homes, we are able to assess each basset for particular traits and dislikes. We may find that certain bassets may not be suitable in a household with children or may not get along well with other pets. We will discuss each basset and their likes and dislikes before placing them in your home.

At this point, after agreeing on a suitable basset for your lifestyle, we will make arrangements to welcome your basset into its new home.

The adoption of a basset hound is not something to take lightly. The entire process can actually take some time to complete. We will, however, make every effort to make this process as easy and timely as possible.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email our Adoption Coordinator.

We look forward to hearing from you and making your home our next success story.
