Cbhr is a volunteer-staffed nonprofit organization whose mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome unwanted basset hounds in north carolina and south carolina.


Carolina basset hound rescue is a volunteer-staffed nonprofit organization and was founded in 1993 in raleigh, north carolina. Cbhr has grown from a fledgling organization with only a few volunteers to a federally recognized non-profit organization. Over the course of 20 years cbhr has rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed over 2,000 basset hounds. The carolina basset hound rescue program is comprised of four main areas: fostering, adoption, donations, and events. Fostering and adoptiononce our volunteer staff is notified of a basset in need, arrangements are made to retrieve him from the shelter and provide him veterinary care. Following a check-up by the veterinarian, he will then move into his assigned foster home. The foster home will help him blossom into a loving, well-mannered family member. Adoptions are completed once his medical needs are met and he is once again healthy. Donationsthe cbhr program would not be able to rescue the dogs it does without continued financial supports from our friends. There are many ways to contribute and you will find one that matches your donation style by visiting our donation page. A minimum donation is requested at the time of adoption. However, most adoption donations equal only half of the average expenses of each of our dogs. Kind and generous supporters of our work must make up the rest. Eventseach year cbhr participates and hosts several events throughout north and south carolina. These events are a great way for us to showcase our dogs and for the volunteers to catch up with their basset-loving friends. They are lots of fun, but do take volunteer manpower and time to be successful. We would love to meet your smiling face at an event soon. The world of rescue is hard, sometimes sad, but also wonderfully warm, inspiring and touching. Our many volunteers passionately give their time, energy, love and money to make this endeavor successful. The rewards of a drool-y basset kiss that says, "thank you, you gave me a chance i would have never had" makes it all worth it.

Reviews for Carolina Basset Hound Rescue Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

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

Several phases

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.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week

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.

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

Transporting, pulling dogs from shelters, working outside events, adopting two great, healthy Bassets, working with a bunch of creative and committed folks who do their utmost for the Bassies
