Meet the pups!


Fred and Ginger came to BaRCSE when their mother refused to feed them. Foster mom Dee fed the pups every 3 hours for the first 2 weeks, keeping them alive. They have flourished under her care and have progressed at 4 weeks to eat mashed up puppy chow with their formula. They are walking and playing with each other and disappearing as they travel from bed to bed, just like Goldilocks! You can follow their progress and growth on our Facebook page!

Thanks for the support for Boudreaux

Boudreaux fought his battle with cancer like a champion but went to the bridge on October 15th with help and support from his foster mom. He came into rescue in July when a kind couple rescued him on Interstate 40 near Kernersville, NC. He went straight to Dottie and Don’s and became a Ratboy forever! He was a wonderful ambassador for BaRCSE, going everywhere with Dottie when she ran errands or went out visiting. He is running free from pain and looking down on the ones who loved him!

Meet Boudreaux


Boudreaux was a stray in Kernersville. The couple who found him contacted BaRCSE and we rescued him. He’s now undergoing medical tests/treatments for a mass cell tumor. We are working to raise funds to pay for his treatment. If you can help, please click the PayPal button on the right to make a donation!


Finding a home for Lilly




Lilly came into rescue after her owner’s life was turned upside down. She is a sweet basset girl of 9 years but she acts more like a 4 year old. She is house trained and has learned how to eat dog food after surviving on people food for a few years. She is very inquisitive and loves to ride in the car. She walks well on a leash. Lilly prefers women or very laid back men but is best suited for a family with no other dogs or small children. She will make some family very happy because she has years of love left to share

Sampson is adopted!

Sampson is officially adopted! Congratulations to Sampson on finding your furever family! Here is an update from his adoptive mom on how he is doing.

“Sampson is definitely one of the family.  Mom has taught him tricks to catch his treat in mid-air and he MUST say good morning to her immediately after she gets up.  We leave him in the house when we are away and he does well.  He got mad at us yesterday and decided he could get on the living room couch.  When we got home he couldn’t get off by himself.  He is allowed on the couch in the den!! (which is lower and he can navigate by himself).

Sleeps on a dog pillow (for the summer) at the foot of my bed and I have kept him to his schedule for feeding – which really works out nice.  For winter I want a more substantial bed he can curl up in.  What a wimp, goes to bed about 8:30 and gets up only to say goodnight (to Mom) and maybe at 4 am to go outside.

…know that we just love this guy …”

St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2013

BaRCSE participated in the Columbia, SC’s St. Patrick’s Day parade again this year. This is an annual event for us, and everyone always love to see our bassets. Our bassets always love to meet more people who obviously want to pet them. Here are some photos of the event from D Thompson. Thanks for sharing D!
