**HHBR IS ONLY TAKING ON A LIMITED NUMBER OF OWNER RELEASE BASSET HOUNDS AT THIS TIME! OUR FOCUS AND FUNDING IS NEEDED FOR SHELTER BASSETS**
If you are a previous adopter and are needing to return your HHBR adopted Basset please continue through the form below and we will be in touch within 24 hours.
If you are needing to a surrender a Basset that is not an adopted hound from HHBR and we have replied that we cannot help please see the below list (in the sidebar of this page) of rescues that may be able to help.
Hounds Haven Basset Rescue is a small foster based only rescue specifically for Basset Hounds. We offer any hound in our care the highest level of vetting, love, care and commitment. Our main focus and priority in accepting hounds into our care will always be the strays or Bassets in the shelters.
Now we understand life can throw it’s curveball’s for owners and owners families, or the hound is experiencing behavioral or medical concerns he or she’s family may not be able to handle. And for those reason’s we are happy to review each Owner Surrender form submission and honestly be able to say we can or cannot help. But please know while we may have resources for many needs we will come across one that we cannot help.
Any Basset being excepted into our program from a surrendering owner/family will need to have the following vetting done PRIOR to HHBR being able to accept the hound into our care. If the vetting cannot be accomplished prior to transfer we will request a donation to help offset the costs. Our funds are very limited and what we do have is worked for by diligent fundraising. Those funds are needed to care for the Basset’s we pull from shelters that have no owner.
