Basset Hound Rescue of Alabama (BHRA) is an all volunteer, 501(c)(3), non-profit charity, dedicated solely to rescuing and finding loving homes for homeless or needy basset hounds from all over the state of AL (and in some cases, surrounding states). Our rescues come from shelters, from owners surrendering their hounds, and unclaimed strays. Every hound we rescue is fully vetted, spayed or neutered, heartworm treated if they arrive positive, evaluated and placed in loving foster homes until "forever homes" can be found for them. The survival of BHRA is due solely to adoption fees (which often do not even cover the vetting costs) and donations from the public. All funds received go strictly to the care and vetting of these precious hounds. We do not take administrative fees. Since 2000, BHRA has taken in and placed over 1,250 hounds in loving homes!
