Consider Virtual Adoption!

It's not a physical or actual act of adopting, but rather a simulated 'Adoption' of a particular dog's needs,taking place over the internet. With a pledge of $20.00 per month, you can help SBR care for a basset who has known years of misunderstanding, neglect or abuse, or perhaps one who was well loved but could no longer be cared for by a previous owner due to life changes.

We encourage you to share the joy of supporting a basset in need with your friends, co-workers, school or community group through Virtual Adoption. Each "Virtual Adopter" that pledges $100 or more per year in financial support will receive your name listed on the Virtual Adoption page.

Homes Desperately Needed!

Fostering a Basset Hound is a rewarding and joyful experience! A Foster takes in a needy Basset, and supplies it with love, food & shelter for a period of time until their forever home is found.

To inquire about fostering a basset, please contact our foster coordinator. If you would like to apply online to provide a foster home, please fill out our easy Foster Home Application.
