About Us


Adopting A Friend

ADOPT A BROOD BASSET: At any time, BROOD will have 30 to 40 bassets available for adoption. Check out the bios, pictures and videos of the dogs on our website at www.brood-va.org.  


Please note that we do not operate as a shelter and we do not house our dogs at any one location.  Our dogs are in foster homes and boarding kennels outside the Charlottesville area, which is our mailing address.


Available dogs range from young hounds to wonderful seniors who are looking for a loving home to spend their retirement years. Be sure to review the information on our website to de­cide if adopting a basset is right for you and your family.

Who We Are

Rescuing basset hounds in Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, DC and South central Pennsylvania, BROOD promotes the humane treatment of homeless, stray and abandoned basset hounds by providing food, shelter, medical care and placement in adoptive homes. 

Basset Rescue of Old Dominion (BROOD) was founded in 1996 and in the past 20 years has rescued and found homes for over 2,900  basset hounds. Working as an all-volunteer organization, BROOD rescues basset hounds that are lost or surrendered to shelters and finds adoptive homes for them.

Working in a large geographic area of five states and the District of Columbia, BROOD has a network of volunteers who work with shelters, veterinarians and BROOD foster homes to rescue, provide medical and custodial care, and place at-risk basset hounds in forever adoptive homes.

Come Visit Us

We do not have a central location.  All our dogs are in foster homes or kennels. Dogs may be visited by approved adopters only.
