About Our Rescue


West Coast Bloodhound Rescue is a non-profit 501c3 volunteer based organization. Our mission as a rescue is to help bloodhounds in need with the end goal of pairing them with their perfect forever home.

We are a specialized breed specific rescue intended mainly for bloodhounds, but we occasionally assist bloodhound mixes. Bloodhounds are not a common breed and have very different needs compared to the more common dog breeds. Unfortunately, because of these special needs, some end up in inappropriate homes where the dog is often misunderstood or the owner has not been properly educated about bloodhounds. Other reasons hounds may find their way into our rescue are life situations that the family or individuals had no control over.  No matter the situation or background, finding a forever home for these surrendered bloodhounds is our #1 priority.

Your donations are tax deductible (Tax ID #47-4137913)!

Meet Calamity, the Mama Dog

Recently, our volunteer found a litter of pups in a river bed by her house.  Though these pups are not bloodhounds, we all agreed that we needed to rescue these pups.  We named them the Acme pups!  We couldn't find mama dog, so we ended up setting a live trap and we were able to catch her.  We have raised funds to take care of the puppies, but we now need to raise funds for the mama, who we named Calamity.  She requires some vet care and a spay.  The puppies are doing well and all are now spoken for.

Please donate to our Giving Grid today to help the mama!
