Please note that we currently have a waiting list of at least 50 approved applicants, and very few available basset hounds. We still invite you to complete an Adoption Application especially if you are prepared to accept a senior or medically needy hound.
Your donations help rescue Basset Hounds from abusive, abandoned and unwanted situations throughout Northern California and the Reno, NV area.
Just a small donation can make a big difference in the lives of these pets.
Our goal is to find a forever home for each of our rescued hounds.
Think you’re ready to adopt? Learn more about our adoption process and start working with one of our adoption volunteers today.
Without the helping hands of our many volunteers, over 100 hounds a year would lose the chance at a forever home.
Whether you have 1 hour a month or time for more, we have volunteer opportunities for everyone.
Today's Featured Basset Hound
Breed: Basset Hound / Mixed
Description: Lucy Boo is not a GGBR dog. She is a courtesy listing for Peace of Mind Dog Rescue (POMDR) in Pacific Grove, CA. It’s impossible not to smile when you meet Lucy Boo. She’s got a squat, comical frame, a large dog’s body on little dog legs! She definitely moves at her own pace, but as long as you’re willing to take things at her speed, she enjoys walking on leash and will stay right by your side. Lucy Boo is a mellow, easygoing girl, content to spend most of her day ... Click for more information ...

About Golden Gate Basset Rescue
Golden Gate Basset Rescue (GGBR) rescues Basset Hounds from abusive, abandoned, and unwanted situations. We do not have a kennel or shelter, so there is no physical location to go and see our available dogs, but you can learn about them here on this site and contact us for additional information and find out how to meet them.
GGBR is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization. We exist solely on donations.
GGBR takes orphaned bassets into foster care, in volunteer homes, where they are loved and cared for until permanent, forever homes are found. We provide veterinary care, including necessary vaccinations, spaying, neutering, heartworm prevention, and flea and tick prevention.
Our hounds are always microchipped. Our wonderful volunteers spend time with the dogs to evaluate them, deal with any behavioral issues, and restore them to full health with good food and love. That means we know a LOT about our dogs... which helps us match the right dog with YOU once you have an approved application on file.
