Upon intake into rescue, the dog will be spayed/neutered, micro chipped, vaccinated and receive any additional needed medical care. The dog will be placed in a foster home for a minimum of a two week evaluation period. After the two weeks, the dog will be able for adoption and meet and greets with potential adopters. While we do NOT require a relinquishment donation, a donation of any amount will help offset some of the expenses AZBHR will incur with the intake of your dog.
Please note – Arizona Basset Hound Rescue gives priority to Basset Hounds and Bloodhounds that are being held in shelters, since they are in danger of euthanasia. We decide which dogs we can take on a case-by-case basis.
If we accept your dog into rescue you will also need to sign our relinquishment agreement. You must understand that you have relinquished all rights to the dog and will not be able re-claim the dog for any reason.
It is helpful if you can bring the dog to us. We have to do a lot of traveling when we place a dog, so we must place the burden of traveling on the relinquishing party. If and when the dog is accepted into rescue, additional information regarding transport will be provided.
