House of Puddles
House of Puddles is a retirement home for homeless senior basset hounds. Since 2002, HOP has provided a home for over 90 senior or special needs hounds, accepted at the request or referral of basset hound rescue organizations and animal shelters.The seniors at HOP average about 12 years in age. Their health issues include blindness, deafness, diabetes, cancer, incontinence, arthritis and severe skin allergies. HOP does not actively try to adopt dogs out because they are generally considered to be unadoptable due to their age or special needs. However, if the right family comes along for the right dog, we are always happy for our hounds to have their own forever homes.
