Basset Hound Rescue of Alabama (BHRA) is an all volunteer Alabama dog rescue. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, dedicated to rescuing and finding loving homes for homeless or needy basset hounds throughout the state of Alabama (and in some cases, surrounding states).
The hounds we rescue come from a number of places and situations to include shelters and owners who can no longer care for their hounds; some are unclaimed strays. Every hound we rescue is first sent to one of our veterinarians where, at minimum, treatment includes a full check-up and vaccinations, spay or neuter if needed, heartworm test and treatment if positive, and other treatments specific to each animal’s needs.
After complete medical evaluation and treatment, each dog is placed in a loving foster home until a “forever home” can be found. The financial survival of BHRA is due solely to adoption fees (which usually do not even cover vetting costs) and donations from the public.
All funds received go strictly to the care and vetting of these precious hounds; no administrative fees are claimed. Since 2000, BHRA has taken in and placed close to 1500 hounds in loving homes!
If you can't adopt or foster right now, but would like to help in some small way, consider sponsoring a hound! We will list your name as a sponsor on the dog's page. All funds donated are tax deductible AND 100% of the funds donated will go to helping the hounds of BHRA! Email us to sponsor a hound.
