Adoption Application

We are excited that you are thinking about adopting one of our lovable hounds! Please complete this application, as thoroughly as possible, so we can begin to match you with a basset that is right for your family. Completing the application does NOT mean that you must adopt a basset from us but it allows us to begin the process as well as allows an adoption team person to discuss available hounds with you.

Please be aware that:

  • References checks are done on all adopting families.
  • Each family pet (including cats) must be current on his or her vaccinations.
