OBR is no longer taking adoption applications
Thank you for completing this application below. Please note: We will keep your application on file for one year.
Please note: Some additional information also below
Bloodhounds and Children:
In most cases we do not adopt Bloodhounds to families with babies or small children. This would include children under the age of 8. We don't always know how some of our Bloodhounds get along with children. This is for the safety of your family. From time to time we do have a Bloodhound we know gets along with children that we feel confident in placing with a family with children.
Adoption Fees: Our usual fee for adoption is $400.00 for adults and $425.00 for puppies. This includes the Bloodhound being spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, microchipped and all vaccinations up-to-date as well as provided with any other medical care needed prior to adoption.
One of our volunteers will contact you to follow-up on your application. We have many applications and only a few volunteers to process them, so it can sometimes take a while.
We take all steps necessary to ensure our Bloodhounds are perfectly matched to their new families. This can often take some time but is always certainly worth it. We appreciate your patience. Thanks for your support!
Completing this application does not put the applicant or the rescue group under any obligation. All information is kept strictly confidential.
Application MUST be completed in full. Only those applications completed in FULL will be processed.
Please contact your veterinarian to give them permission to speak with us upon completion of this application. Completing this application does not put the applicant under any obligation and does not guarantee that the applicant will receive a dog. A home visit is required.
For the safety of our Bloodhounds, if you do have a yard, we require it be securely fenced. No Bloodhound will be tied out on a cable, rope, chain or runner. Underground electric fencing does not work for this breed. A loose Bloodhound is a GONE Bloodhound so they can't be off leash in an unfenced area. Occationally, we do have senior Bloodhounds who would be fine taken out to potty on a leash.
Please provide the names and contact information for at least three references who can speak to your fitness as a pet owner in general and, more specifically, as the owner of a medium-to-large-sized dog. Please inform your references that we may be contacting them and give them permission to speak with us. If you currently own or have in the last five years owned a pet, please include your VETERINARIAN as one of the references. PLEASE DO NOT LIST MORE THAN ONE FAMILY MEMBER OR OTHER RELATION AS A REFERENCE.
