Rescue Spotlight: Ohio Basset Hound Rescue

Ohio Basset Hound Rescue (OBHR) is an organization staffed entirely by volunteers working to rescue unwanted, abandoned or relinquished Basset Hounds in the Ohio area, with the ultimate goal of placing these dogs into loving, permanent homes. They are not a shelter; rather, they are a network of volunteers throughout Ohio that provide foster homes for Basset Hounds in need. These dogs are placed into foster homes until the right home is found. The animals that come into the rescue are provided with medical care including a veterinary exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing, and spaying or neutering.

Interested in adopting a Basset Hound? OBHR places their dogs into homes throughout Ohio, as well as parts of Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The organization’s website maintains information about their adoptable Bassets, as well as an online adoption application form. The first step of the adoption process is to complete the adoption application, after which a phone interview will follow. Once your application has been approved, you will be invited to meet the potential adoptee at the dog’s foster home.

If you are not able to adopt, there are other ways you can help the rescue organization. Ohio Basset Hound Rescue gratefully accepts monetary donations, which are used to care for the rescue animals. You can also volunteer to provide a foster home, or volunteer to assist OBHR in other ways such as home visits, assisting with public events, and providing transportation to Bassets going to their foster or permanent home. PetMeds was proud to help support OBHR with a donation of pet supplies.
