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.

Rosie (adopted from Brood in 2014, and shown here with her family member, Phil) hopes that you will help BROOD save the lives of other Basset Hounds. Did you know that to promote responsible pet ownership, BROOD pays for the spaying/neutering of all of the dogs we rescue?

You can help us by donating toward a spay or neuter for one dog. This donation can be added to your shopping card in the Brood Online Store. 0307876.netsolstores.com/spayorneuterforonedog.aspx
