About a year ago, my wife and I decided to take the plunge and attempt to "foster" a basset for Carolina Basset Hound Rescue (CBHR). I guess fostering to was the same as tryout for a new baby in the family. We failed miserably at fostering. That baby was adopted in less than 12 hours. Since that time, we have been active in several activities for and with CBHR. This rescue group is phenomenal! CBHR is the most dedicated group we have seen. They a highly organized, well-oiled machine with dedicated volunteers throughout both Carolinas. If you are interested in "dog rescue", you cannot find a finer, more active group than CBHR.

I have been volunteering with CBHR since I adopted my first basset in 1996. This is a wonderful group to be involved with. We have grown over the years and have numerous volunteers over both NC and SC. We have saved hundreds of dogs from shelters across the Carolina, and given them a second chance with loving adoptive homes. It is such a great feeling seeing these dogs flourish in their new homes!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have adopted 6 CBHR hounds over the years!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more foster dogs out to local events.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing dogs get adopted.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very friendly, hard working, and dedicated to helping the dogs.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide kenneling for dogs when we run out of foster space; Provide better medical care for our rescued hounds; Be able to get professional help for dogs with behavioral issues. Help foster homes by providing food. Help transport volunteers with gas cost.

Ways to make it better...

More people adopted senior hounds.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Trying to keep funds coming in.

One thing I'd also say is that...

We need to find better ways to communicate with our large group of volunteers and adoptive homes.

CBHR, as it is known to us members, is a non-profit organization that has been in both North and South Carolina for the past 15 years. Its' purpose is to rescue, rehab and re-home Bassets that we find in 'kill' shelters. We are a network of volunteers who specialize in different areas: fostering, transporting, administration and fundraising. We take the fosters to 20 events per year getting the word out about our Bassets.
