Adoption Application

Adopting a dog is a very important step to take and should only be done once you have fully researched the idea. You are about to complete an application to adopt a Basset Hound. We hope that we can match you with the right dog and that you will give the hound a safe and loving environment for the rest of its natural life.

 

Before you continue, I want to confirm that GGBR does expect an adoption fee as a donation.  This fee helps us to meet the medical expenses for all our hounds.  We vet every dog, make sure the vaccinations are current and that the dog is heartworm tested.  We spay or neuter every animal if necessary, treat any medical conditions and start our hounds on heartworm preventative.  On average, each basset hound that passes through rescue costs at least $300.   The adoption fees are the minimum recommended, but they are negotiable.  We discount the fees for people who want to adopt bonded pairs or multiple hounds.

Adoption donations:

  • Puppy up to 6mths old - $550
  • 6 mths-less than 2 yrs old - $500
  • 2-5 yrs old - $450
  • 6-9 yrs old - $400
  • 10 yrs & older - $350 (see our Golden Oldies program - if you are over 65 you can adopt a senior hound, 10 yrs or older, for $275)
  • If you adopt a pair, you pay full price for the youngest and only 75% for the older hound

Thank you for your interest in adopting from us...
