Welcome to BROOD

Since 1996, BROOD has cared for and found homes for over 3,250 basset hounds and basset mixes.  Some have been abused or neglected, others needed rescue 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.

Ramble Wrap-Up

The 2021 Ramble is a wrap and it was one of our best ever!  The field was filled with bassets and other dogs and their humans for four hours.  Of course the weather was warm and humid, and we had a great day of fun and fundraising.  Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us.

The Dog Contests, Pie Eating Contest and Basset 500 Race were the highlights of the dog activities.  The crowd enthusiastically cheered and supported the dogs as they participated in the contests.

Thank you to the BROOD Board of Directors and our team of Ramble volunteers for all their hard work at the Ramble event and in the months prior.   Dozens of volunteers helped us and we greatly appreciate their time and commitment.
