BROOD Adoption Fees

BROOD has a record of providing exceptional veterinary care for our basset hounds. Every incoming dog is checked by a veterinarian prior to adoption, and treated for any problems. All dogs are spayed or neutered, brought up-to-date on shots, and placed on heartworm preventative.

BROOD provides top quality care because your basset’s health is most important to us, just as it is to you. The cost of veterinary care is constantly rising and our adoption fees cover only a small portion of the cost of veterinary care for the dogs we rescue.  We depend totally upon adoption fees and donations received from our generous supporters to fund our rescue work.

Our current adoption fee schedule is:


  • Purebred Classic – $400 (as determined by BROOD’s president)
  • Young (up to 2 years) – $400
  • Adult (2 to 7 years) – $300
  • Senior (8 years and older) – $200


  • Mix (up to 7 years) – $250
  • Senior Mix (8 years and older) – $150

Bonded Pairs:

  • Full fee for the dog with the higher fee plus 50% of the lower of the two adoption fees

No adoption fees will be refunded after 14 calendar days. Please check the Adoption Pages for actual fees for an individual dog.

Thank you for choosing BROOD and rescue.
