BROOD serves as a safety net for adoptable Basset Hounds in shelters. Our intake capacity is limited, and we ask that every effort be made to adopt the dog locally before contacting BROOD. BROOD can no longer automatically accept every dog; each will be taken in on a case by case basis.
This Shelter Referral Form must be completed for all dogs prior to a final intake decision being made and prior to the dog being physically removed from a shelter by a BROOD volunteer. All intake decisions are solely made by the BROOD Intake Committee.
If you have any questions about BROOD’s policies or our process, please contact the intake committee BEFORE you submit the Shelter Referral Form.
