The Basset Hound Club of Victoria Inc.

Basset Rescue Service

 

AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT ABLE TO ASSIST WITH THE RE-HOMING AND/OR RESCUE OF BASSET HOUNDS DUE TO THE VICTORIAN STATE GOVERNMENT LEGISLATION, PLUS THE ADDED DIFFICULTIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE ON-GOING STATE COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.

Generally, the Club has been happy to assist in helping to re-home Basset Hounds that have been abandoned, mistreated or just not wanted which may be due to many reasons such as the owner moving into accommodation which cannot have dogs, changing family circumstances or the dog is just not suited to the people's lifestyle any more.  

 

However, due to the current limitations we are experiencing, we suggest that as the first option, you make contact with the breeder who you purchased your Basset from to see if they are able to assist you in finding a suitable home. 

If you need help in finding the right people and home for a Basset Hound then please email the club, and we will endeavour to assist by liaising with people on our waiting list for an older dog, and helping to connect people.   We will need as much detail about the dog or dogs that is available.  Typically information on age, condition, any habits, medical history and where they can be located, as much history as possible will assist in how to treat the hound.

If you are in a position to adopt a relinquished Basset Hound and provide a safe and loving home...it could be the best thing you have ever done for yourself...contact the Secretary via email, and add your name to the list of people waiting for a rescued adult. 

This service is for Basset Hounds only.
