The mission of Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue is to take in and place Basset Hounds who are in need of new homes. All dogs receive needed veterinary care (including spay/neuter, innoculations, heartworm testing, etc.), and are placed into approved homes. Most of the dogs we place are turned over to us by animal shelters throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania and New York or have been surrendered by their previous owners due to circumstance (allergies, moving, etc.). We adopt basset hounds to loving homes in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, and Maryland.
Adopters are asked to make a minimum donation of $250 to cover the expenses involved in getting the dog ready for placement, i.e., veterinary bills, board bills if the dog must be housed in a commercial kennel while awaiting adoption, etc. Any additional donation above expenses is appreciated, and goes into our rescue fund to help care for other dogs, such as extraordinary veterinary expenses, etc.
