BASSET HOUND RESCUE OF NEW MEXICO, INC., based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, rescues Bassets from city shelters and humane associations throughout the state. Rescued Bassets are usually placed in foster homes prior to being placed in permanent homes. While in Foster Care, Bassets are evaluated for temperament, sociability, housebreaking, barking, health, and any other traits or habits. They are examined by a licensed veterinarian, required vaccinations are administered, and if needed, spayed or neutered prior to placement. We are a licensed 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Basset Rescue does not have runs or kennels. Foster Families welcome these needy hounds into their own homes, giving them love and attention until adoption. We work closely with the Peoples' Anti-Cruelty Association/Albuquerque Animal Rescue (PACA), Albuquerque Animal Services, and the Santa Fe Animal Shelter. During the adoption process, we educate the prospective owner about the breed, proper care, and the benefits of spaying and neutering their new Basset.
