Surrender Questionnaire

Thank you for considering Golden Gate Basset Rescue when deciding to surrender your basset hound.  We know this must be a difficult time for you. 

  • Have you read the information on our Surrender page? 
  • Please complete this form as fully as possible. 
  • Follow the instructions in the email you will receive after submission of the form.  That email should be in your inbox within one hour of your form submission.  Please check your spam folder and if you still don't see it, email info@ggbassetrescue.org and let us know.  
  • If we don't receive the requested information from you within 7 days of form submission we will treat your surrender application as abandoned.

All forms are usually read on the day they are submitted, and if your situation is extremely urgent, please tell us so on the form. We need time to find a foster home to take them.  

We no longer expect a specific surrender fee.  Instead, we ask that you are prepared to update your basset's vaccinations and have the dog tested for heartworm. If you can afford to pay for the spay or neuter of your dog, that also helps. However, we know that strained finances are often the cause for surrendering your dog, so we only ask you to do what you can honestly afford. If your basset has a behavioral problem, we may insist that you take your basset for a professional behavior assessment.  If required, we will tell you who to go to (in your local area) and what this will cost.   If the fee is a problem, we can discuss this with you, but it will be a small price to pay to know that we have all the information we need to find your pet the best possible home.  A contribution to the expenses of rehoming your dog, vet bills etc. is always appreciated.  We are a 501c3 registered non-profit organization, and all donations can be written off against your taxes.
