Thank you for contacting NorthEast Bloodhound Rescue.  Please understand
that our primary concern is placing a dog in the best possible home for the
dog and we therefore do not operate on a first come, first served basis. We
will try to match you and the dog according to your application to create the
best possible match.
    There is a $150 dollar adoption fee. This is to provide the dog with all
vaccinations, spay/neuter, heartworm testing and fecal exams. It also covers
the cost of temperament testing, obedience, and/or foster care if necessary.
We are an all-volunteer organization. All moneys received go directly to aid
the dogs, and the only money we get is from donations. We do have some
absolute requirements. In order to be considered, you must have a fenced
yard, you must be willing and able to provide adequate food, shelter,
veterinary care and meet the emotional needs of the Bloodhound, and you must
agree that, if the dog is unsuitable or in need of placement again, the dog
will be returned to NorthEast Bloodhound Rescue.
    If, once you have read the information, you are still interested in a
Bloodhound, we strongly suggest that you read The New Complete Bloodhound by
Catherine Brey and Lena Reed, and Second-Hand Dog by Carol Lea Benjamin.
Contact us with any questions, we will be happy to help. Once we have your
application back, we can begin the process of matching you to your new dog.
    We look forward to hearing from you.
