Driving Directions
The purpose of a foster home is to place a rescued Basset immediately into a normal family situation - not a kennel. Our dogs may come from the pound or shelter or from a family moving to another city. We feel that a temporary foster home is the best place for a dog to adjust to the changes and, hopefully, to be adopted.

As a foster home, you are responsible for the dog’s basic needs, such as food, shelter and a fenced area large enough to allow the hound plenty of room to run and play safely. Basic health requirements, such as shots and spay/neuter, are paid by Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia. BHRG will furnish the dog with a nylon collar and id tag.

Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia is a non-profit, volunteer effort to save abandoned and mistreated Basset Hounds. Our rescue effort began in 1991, and we have rescued over 2,900 Bassets since that time. Originally privately funded by two volunteers, today BHRG is a non-profit charitable organization which exists solely on donations.

Orphaned Bassets are held in foster care until permanent, loving homes can be found.
