Welcome to BROOD

Since 1996, BROOD has cared for and found homes for over 3,300 basset hounds and basset mixes.  Some have been abused or neglected, others needed rescue when owners moved or passed away or could no longer care for their hounds. We are now in our 26th year of rescue.

Ellie(Standing), Carl(black and white) and Lolli. Lolli is a brood foster failure from 2015, but we lost her to a spleen rupture 10 days ago. We miss her... such a great dog. Here she is enjoying the fresh cut grass in mid July.

Archie, BROOD alum, has moved to Florida and loves going for rides in “his” golf cart. ☺️
