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)!

Urgent donations needed for unexpected puppy


One of our wonderful fosters took in two bloodhounds to help with a family crisis situation. The female showed signs of what we suspected to be a false pregnancy. After a vet visit and an ultrasound, we found out that mom had a surprise pregnancy with a single puppy. 

As you can imagine, puppies require lots of supplies and funds. Mom and dad will need to be sterilized, puppy will need full vaccines & neuter (in time), as well as food/laundry/puppy supplies. 

We have a Giving Grid fundraiser currently going on. Those who donate in increments of $10 will be entered to win bloodhound artwork and will get to name the puppy! Each $10 donated is another entry




We'll post any new or upcoming events here as soon as we have the information for them.
