Who We Are

Ohio Basset Hound Rescue (OBHR) is an all volunteer organization – dedicated to helping the homeless hounds of Ohio.

Our volunteer network spans to the four corners of Ohio, as well as neighboring states. Our funds come solely through donations and fundraisers. OBHR does not have a shelter of its own. Our “shelter” exists through our foster families that open their hearts and homes to a hound in need.

OBHR hounds come from all walks of life: on death row at a county pound; left wandering alone in the middle of the woods, along a country road, or dodging traffic on the freeway.

Once a hound is with OBHR, the dog is then given all vaccinations (including bordatella, rabies & distemper series combination); heartworm test and monthly preventative or treatment; spay/neuter; and any other needed medical treatment. They are also microchipped!

These hounds are then placed in foster care, so long as there is a foster home open and ready to take them in. OBHR foster homes and their families have very big hearts and are often working very hard, day after day – to provide a sort of finishing school for homeless hounds. 

These homeless hounds remain in foster care or in a boarding kennel (if a foster home is unavailable) until a forever home can be found for them.

Come Visit Us

Because we are a volunteer organization we do not have a shelter that you can come and visit. We have foster homes throughout Ohio and some in neighboring states.
