Where We Work

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

Adopt

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.

Foster

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

Donate

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

BROOD Store

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.
