Bassett and Beagle Rescue of the Heartland

By Savannah Capps

In 2005 The Bassett and Beagle Rescue of the Heartland (BBRH) opened to provide sanctuary for bassett and beagle mixes. BBRH is completely foster based, so dogs are picked up and immediately taken to a home. “Fostering is very rewarding… watching them grow and knowing that you are give them a new start is very heartwarming… it can be sad when they leave, but also happy because you know they’re going to their forever home in a safe environment,” said foster Vicki Hugo. Becoming a foster is an easy process. All you have to do is go to the BBRH website and apply. It just asks for some basic information so that BBRH can get to know you. If you are accepted, BBRH will pay for all the treats, food, toys, etc; all you must do is love the dog and occasionally take them to doctors appointments or adoption events. Marissa Capps, another foster, said that having another dog in her home brought more love into the household. For more information on BBRH, and how you can get involved, visit bassettandbeagle.com
