Mission Statement

Basset Hound Rescue & Adoption, Inc of San Diego is a 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue organization dedicated to placing unwanted Basset Hounds into suitable forever homes, and preventing unwanted bassets from overloading the shelter system. Towards attaining those goals, Basset Hound Rescue & Adoption of San Diego promotes responsible dog ownership by educating the public in the selection, care and training of Basset Hounds. Basset Hound Rescue & Adoption of San Diego works cooperatively with reputable breeders, animal shelters, breed clubs, animal behaviorists and veterinarians and individuals to accomplish these goals. We are a volunteer run organization.

We take in as many Basset Hounds as we have the resources and volunteers to properly care for.

Changing lifestyles, the economy and lack of responsibility are just some of the reasons for an over abundance of dogs in rescues and shelters. This is not limited to only Basset Hounds.

We believe Education not Condemnation is the key to ending the need for shelters and rescues throughout the county and work toward educating people on animal needs, care and nutrition and also for the necessity of spay/neuter programs.

We are a diverse group of individuals who have come together for the love of the hounds and work together in unity for the betterment of the unwanted and abandoned hounds in San Diego county.
