I have know Leslie Ames for a number of years and she is the most dedicated Basset Rescue individual I know. She spends most of her waking hours, working with and for the dogs.
My current 3 bassets have all come through Montana Basset Rescue. They were closely vet checked to make sure there were no unknown problems to me, spayed and updated on shots. MBR even talked a gentleman out of trying to sell my youngest on craigslist and turning her over to the rescue instead. Montana Basset Rescue does the very best at helping any abandoned or homeless hound find a new forever home that is a good fir for them.
Basset Rescue Of Montana is a true blessing for both the dog and the adoptive family. We have adopted our last two dogs from them and would definitely do it again. These rescued bassets are so loveable and thrilled to find thier forever homes...truly they make the best pets. To the rescues credit, a thorough check is made on the prospective family, in the hopes of insuring a forever home. They truly do want the best for the animal.
Basset Rescue of Montana is just wonderful! They will never turn away an animal and will go to whatever lengths they must in order to do what is best for the dog and help him/her overcome whatever problems they may have. I have been a client served and now am a volunteer and I am always amazed at how hard Leslie works for the animals to make sure they get whatever they need, be it emotional or medical. This Rescue is truly a god-send. The follow up after adoption is truly amazing to make sure that all is well with both the 4 legged and the two legged in the household and that all are adapting well. Any time anyone has ever asked Leslie for help, she goes above and beyond to make sure all are taken care of.
Basset Rescue of Montana is serious about taking in abused, abandoned, neglected, or owner surrendered Basset Hounds and or Basset mixes. Basset Rescue of Montana takes ownership of these Basset Hounds that are relinquished from previous owners, animal shelters, humane societies, puppy mills, and animal welfare agencies. Basset Rescue of Montana provides these Basset Hounds with medical care, food, shelter, and safety in foster homes, until they can find them permanent loving homes.
Basset Rescue of Montana evaluates the temperament of each dog that comes into their care. If any hound displays a temperament that is unacceptable, they will rehabilitate the dog in order to prepare it for a successful adoption.
Basset Rescue of Montana seeks prospective adopters by advertising on their webpage; word of mouth; at public events; and on Petfinder at PetFinder.com they screen each prospective adopter to determine their preparedness for adopting a Basset Hound. Once an applicant is approved and matched with an appropriate basset hound, Basset Rescue of Montana transfers ownership of the dog to the approved adopter and provides them with continuing support and education throughout the life of the Basset Hound.
Basset Rescue of Montana also provides education to the general public on the basic care, training, characteristics and traits of their canine companions, in particular those of the Basset Hound Breed. They are a group of honest, dedicated, caring volunteers, none of which receives any monetary
support from the adoption of the Basset Hounds they serve. The average cost of caring for the vetting needs of a Basset from inception to adoption is around $350.00 so donations are continually needed to keep the rescue operating. If you want to know your money ... all of it ....is going directly to the charity this is the non profit you want to donate to.
