Basset Rescue of Old Dominion (BROOD) is a non-profit charitable organization established to place homeless, unwanted and/or mistreated basset hounds. Because the majority of these basset hounds come from county shelters, evaluation of their temperament and medical condition before placing them in permanent homes is essential. Foster homes are critical for this evaluation and for the completion of the BROOD mission.
If you would like your home to be considered for fostering, please complete the form below and send it to us. Our foster recruiter will contact you to discuss your application and arrange for a volunteer to visit your house. Foster parents should have adequate medical, liability, and property insurance. BROOD no longer accepts foster applications from households with children 5 years old and younger.
Note that all foster parents MUST be members of BROOD. If you are not a member of BROOD, please go to our Membership Application first before applying to become a foster home.
