Where We Work

BROOD rescues basset hounds and basset mixes in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, Delaware and portions of southern Pennsylvania.


Considering adopting a basset hound or basset hound mix? BROOD adopts dogs to qualified homes in VA, MD, DC, WV, and parts of DE and PA, other states at our discretion.


We always need more foster homes. No other job in rescue is more rewarding than fostering.


BROOD welcomes new members who share our passion for rescuing homeless. Please join us as we continue our ongoing rescue work!


BROOD could not save any hounds without the hard work of our volunteers. Get involved today!


Rescue is expensive. Donate to BROOD today to support our rescue work.

Welcome to BROOD

Since 1996, BROOD has cared for and adopted almost 3,200 dogs with injured bodies, damaged spirits, or broken hearts. Some have been abused or neglected, others left behind when owners moved or passed away. All needed our help. Our dogs will always come first. We are unsparing in our care for our droopy eared, short legged canine friends, helping them find the forever homes they deserve.
