Thank you for visiting Basset Rescue of Florida…

Our Rescue, Basset Rescue of Florida, saves the lives of Basset Hounds in the South Florida area, takes care of their medical needs, evaluates their personality, and begins the training they didn’t receive in their previous homes. Whether it’s a Basset puppy, an adult, or a senior hound, we most likely can make a perfect match for your family. Visit our Available Bassets page for current adoptable dogs. Filling out an adoption questionnaire is the first step so please start there if you are interested in making one of our hounds a part of your family.

Since our inception in July 2007, there have been many people and companies that have given us their support – from their time and expertise to much needed fundraising efforts. I can’t thank those volunteers and professionals enough for their help over the years. Our major expense is our veterinary costs. We provide excellent veterinary care thanks to the support of Dr. Mike Horbal and his caring staff at Veterinary Clinic at Southgate. His Tamarac clinic is highly recommended.

If you like our logo, check out Dogs for the Paws, the national pet lovers site to inspire others to help animals in need through pet art, photography, stories, and a love for animals. Missy Johnson is a truly talented professional. And special thanks to another creative mind, Paola Paladini Pet Photography. Our dogs are made into superstars each time we visit her studio in Sunrise. Also our deepest appreciation is given to Christopher & Weisberg, P.A. The attorneys in this law firm limit their practice to intellectual property litigation and have offered assistance and expertise in matters relating to our bassets. I can personally vouch for their integrity and devotion to the cause.

We are pleased that our Rescue was able to play a part in continuing The Daily Drool Calendar’s long standing tradition for 2016. Those who have purchased a page or a calendar, your support enables us to bring additional hounds into our Rescue, get them healthy, and find them perfect homes. Every June we will start the process again so check back with us around then or sign up for our Daily Drool alerts by clicking here.

Basset Rescue of Florida looks forward to saving more lives and can’t do it without each and every one of you that visits our site.

Warmest Rescue Wishes,

Pam Farris, President of Basset Rescue of Florida, Inc.President, Basset Rescue of Florida
