Western Missouri Basset Rescue, Inc. (WMBRI), is a not-for-profit volunteer organization. We are dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of relinquished, abandoned, neglected or abused Basset Hounds. WMBRI takes ownership of basset hounds that are relinquished from previous owners, animal shelters, humane societies, puppy mills, and animal welfare agencies and provides these Basset Hounds with medical care, food, shelter, and safety in foster homes, until they find permanent loving homes.
WMBRI evaluates the temperament of each dog and rehabilitates temperamental dogs in order to prepare them for successful adoption.
WMBRI seeks prospective adopters by advertising on their webpage; word of mouth; at public events WMBRI transfers ownership of the dog to the approved adopter and provides them with continuing support and education throughout the life of the Basset Hound.
