5 years old.  Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescued Basset Hound!  We ask all potential adopters to complete our application and approval process first so we can discuss the dogs that fit your home.  We usually have 25 - 35 dogs available and the ages range from less than year old to ten plus years old.  Once we receive your application you'll be contacted by an adoption representative to complete the application process.  We look forward to speaking with you about our wonderful hounds waiting for forever homes!!!

Adoption Process
Adoption Application must be submitted. An adoption donation of $400 is required at the time of adoption. Once we receive your application, either by mail or online submittal, an adoption screener will call you to review the application. A home visit may also be scheduled at this time and references will be checked before or after the phone interview. Once an adopter and a dog have been matched, a Tri-State adoption representative will complete the adoption at a mutually agreed upon location. The adoption contract will be completed, which specifies the terms of the agreement, along with payment of the adoption donation.

Look for other dogs for adoption!
