Foster Volunteer

Fostering is one of the most critical services you can provide a hound. Fosters make up the backbone of the work we do and BHRSC could not exist if fosters were not willing to love and house the hounds while we search for their permanent homes. Another option is to help as a Foster Coordinator Assistant. This position supports the Foster Coordinator by recruiting new foster volunteers, as well as keeping track of existing fosters. It also involves working with the Behavioral and Medical Teams to assess hound temperament.

How you help As an all-volunteer run organization, we would not exist or continue to save hounds without the love, compassion, and hard work of our volunteers. Dedicating your time to the hounds is enormously rewarding because the hounds allow you to become part of their journey to their forever homes.
About us Basset Hound Rescue of Southern California goes the extra mile to ensure that each hound gets the personalized care essential for starting their new life! Hounds come to BHRSC for many different reasons. The lucky ones lived with loving families but were surrendered due to family hardship. Some are found abandoned and wandering the streets tired and hungry, while others are rescued from shelters where they are slated to be euthanized. Once the rehabilitation process is complete, we take care to match the hounds with loving forever families that will lavish them with the love and affection that every hound deserves. We work to raise funds to save as many basset hounds in Southern California as possible and constantly strive to grow our network of volunteers and foster homes.
