Golden Gate Basset Rescue
Golden Gate Basset Rescue (GGBR) rescues Basset Hounds from abusive, abandoned and unwanted situations. We do NOT have a kennel or shelter so there is no one place to go and see our available dogs.
We were formed in 2005 after operating for nearly ten years under the Northern California Basset Hound Club. Today, GGBR is a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit organization. We exist solely on donations.
GGBR takes orphaned bassets into foster care, usually in volunteer homes, where they are loved and cared for until permanent, forever homes are found. We provide veterinary care, which includes necessary vaccinations, spaying and neutering, heartworm prevention, flea and tick prevention. Our hounds are microchipped with 24PetWatch.com microchips, and when adopted out come with 30 days gift insurance cover courtesy of ShelterCare. Our wonderful volunteers spend time with the dogs to evaluate them, deal with any behavioral issues, and restore them to full health with good food and love.
GGBR is based in Petaluma, CA, but covers all of Northern California. We can help to rescue and place dogs as far south as Monterey, Stanislaus and Toulomne counties, as far north as the Oregon Border and as far east as Reno NV. We are a proud, founding member of the West Coast BROAD (Basset Rescue Organizations Allied Division) and we work closely with our neighboring basset rescue organizations

•NOTE - we do ask for an adoption donation. This is not for the purchase of the basset hound, but a donation towards the cost of caring for all the hounds that come through our Rescue. Some cost more than others, and some hounds stay in foster homes forever, where their medical bills are paid for by GGBR on an ongoing basis. On average a basset hound coming through GGBR costs approximately $700 in medical, spay/neuter, vaccination, heartworm treatment etc. As a donation, this amount can be claimed as a tax deduction, along with other types of donation you make to us and other 501c3 non-profit organizations. Payments made to GGBR for purchase of items via the Online Store are NOT tax deductible. Donations in excess of the above amounts are welcomed!!
