Meet The Basset Hounds - ABC Adoption Event

ABC Basset Hound Rescue is off again to rescue two vans full of homeless Basset Hounds in TN this week for the ABC Adoption Event on August 12.  The event will be held at Camp Bow Wow, Rochester, NY from 11am to 1pm.  ABC has teamed up with some of our Southern rescue friends to transport fifteen homeless Bassets North to find forever homes.  You can view the dogs being transported at ABC Basset Hound Rescue Adoption Event.  ABC Bassets already in foster care will also be at the event and can be viewed at All Bassets Cherished web page.  If you think you see the next love of your life here or on our website please be sure to fill out an adoption application prior to the event at www.nybasset.org
Following are some of the Bassets due to arrive in NY on August 12 and what we have of their stories:

Eight month old Gump
Gump is currently in ABC foster care and is doing very well.  He gets along great with other dogs and small children.  He is a beautiful Basset puppy and if you are looking for a young, wonderful addition to your family Gump is your guy!
CLEO & COY:  Brother and sister were shelter pulls after their owner relinquished them.  The owner purchased them from a breeder four years ago.  They are four years old and get along great with humans and dogs alike. 


Mike and Molly - the M&M Bassets - are brother and sister eight year olds.  They lost their home when their humans passed away and they were turned into a shelter.  If you are looking for a pair of perfectly behaved, low key, sweethearts then Mike & Molly are for you! 
Hang in there houndies - rescue vans driven by ABC volunteers are on their way to the Rescue!


  1. Good Luck to all the hounds on finding their fur-ever homes. I absolutely love what you guys are doing by bringing the southern bassets to the north for their furever homes. From from I understand the south is just overwhelmed with homeless animals, not that everywhere is as well but for some reason ABC has no trouble adopting out these wonderful bassets. God Bless All You Do. I wish I was closer to help out with some of these mass transports. Can't wait to see all some of the ABC crew at the GABR Waddle in September. Sherri

    We have adopted two fur baby Bassets from ABC. Big Red is an awesome Foster Mother in addition to all of the hats she wears. Great organization looking out for these homeless hounds! Keep up the great work!
