Thank you for your interest in adopting a Basset hound from Basset Buddies Rescue of Texas. Adoption is not something to take lightly. We expect our adoptions to last for the life of the dog. Please read this information carefully to understand what you can expect from us and what we expect from you.

The Adoption Process:

1. First, please complete our adoption application.

2. Upon receipt of your application, we will call your vet(s) to ensure your current pets are up-to-date on annual vaccines, have been spayed/neutered, and are on heartworm preventative. We will also contact your landlord, if applicable.

3. Once we've confirmed vet records, our volunteers will contact you for a phone interview and home visit.

4. After approval, our adoption coordinator will contact you to discuss the available Bassets that best match your lifestyle and are most suitable for your home. Not every Basset will be the right one. Our foster families assess each Basset for particular traits and dislikes.

Before adoption, each Basset will be spayed/neutered and will receive all necessary vaccinations, treatments (e.g., heartworm, dental, deworming, etc.), and medications.

We look forward to hearing from you!

"In a perfect world, every dog would have a home and every home would have a dog."
