Who We Are
North Texas Basset Hound Rescue is organized for the following purposes:
The general area of rescue is the Fort Worth and Dallas area, but we also cover many shelters in North Texas from Abilene to Waco, Longview to the Oklahoma border. Money is spent to insure that the bassets are healthy, neutered or spayed, and treatment for heartworms. On occasion we must make the tough decision of euthanasia due to health problems or aggressive behavior. Rescue volunteers receive no compensation for their countless hours and transportation costs. NTBHR is very fortunate to have several veterinarians who provide excellent treatment at a reduced rate. The rewards of a rescue volunteer come from knowing that a basset is getting a second chance and from a slobbery lick and a wagging tail.
North Texas Basset Hound Rescue (NTBHR), an all-volunteer organization, rescued and re-homed 72 Basset Hounds in fiscal year 2011-12. All animals are given medical care including spay/neuter, heartworm treatment, dental care and micro-chipping. Providing information on spay/neuter programs, micro-chipping, and participating in responsible pet ownership events lets us achieve our goals of rescuing Basset Hounds and serving the community. NTBHR has developed and raised $15,000 for a Special Needs Fund, which is used to rehabilitate Basset Hounds that would not have otherwise been adoptable due to illness, mistreatment or injury. Our goals for the current year are to increase our foster care program, allowing us to rescue more Basset Hounds and to increase our fundraising to cover our increasing veterinary costs.
