About Us

Tri State Basset Hound Rescue has been saving basset hounds and basset hound mixes for over 30 years! What was started by one woman saving a few needy hounds in the state of New Jersey has grown to a team of hundreds of volunteers that have rescued over ten thousand hounds in need. Tri State Basset Hound Rescue is registered in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Alabama, and Mississippi.

Mission Statement

Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue, Inc. (TSBHR) is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing Basset Hounds and Basset Hound-Mixes.

Adopters are asked to pay a fee of $375 for the adoption of one dog or $575 for the adoption of two dogs. These fees are necessary to cover the expenses of preparing the dog for placement, e.g., veterinary bills, transport costs, medication, etc. Any additional donation is appreciated and goes into our rescue fund to help care for other dogs who need additional care.
