Our Mission

The mission of Carolina Basset Hound Rescue is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted basset hounds in North Carolina and South Carolina. Carolina Basset Hound Rescue is a volunteer-staffed nonprofit organization and was founded in 1993 in Raleigh, North Carolina. CBHR has grown from a fledgling organization with only a few volunteers to a federally recognized non-profit organization.

Adoption Policy

The adoption process begins with the online submission of an Adoption Application on our website. A telephone interview is conducted, vet references are verified and a home visit is conducted. When a match is made between a dog and a prospective home, the two meet; if the meeting is successful the adoption is finalized after a trial period.  This series of events can take up to several weeks to be completed. We ask for your patience during the process. The majority of our volunteers work full-time in addition to rescuing. We strive to make the best possible match for the basset and forever home, not place bassets quickly.

There is a $250 donation for each basset adopted. This donation helps offset associated rescue costs and is an indicator that the adopting home has financial resources available to care for the new family member.
