Our Mission

New England Basset Hound Rescue was founded in 2001 by lovers of the breed who wanted to make a difference in the lives of these amazing dogs. Since then, NEBHR has rescued and re-homed more than 1000 hounds. New England Basset Hound Rescue is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

NEBHR is operated entirely by unpaid volunteers, including its Board of Directors. The Board keeps things running on a day-to-day basis, but it takes many more dedicated people to accomplish what we do. We have a committed pool of volunteers assisting with fostering, home visits, transports and events.

With no central shelter or boarding facility, NEBHR’s operational model is entirely foster home based. Most of the dogs that come into our care are owner-surrenders or strays from the six New England states. Our goal is to work closely with local shelters, pounds, and Animal Control Officers and to be their first point of contact when they have a Basset Hound or Basset-mix in need of a home. Periodically we receive dogs from outside New England, through partnerships with reputable rescue organizations and animal shelters.
