Helpless Hounds Dog Rescue
Helpless Hounds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, no-kill, breed-specific hound dog rescue organization in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We are dedicated to helping hounds who are left homeless for whatever reason – in public shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, hounds given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect. We place our hounds in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters about the responsibilities and costs of bringing a hound dog into their homes and lives. Hounds in our care are spayed or neutered, receive all appropriate veterinary care and treatment, and placed in nurturing foster homes while they await placement in their permanent homes. We assist hound dogs in distress without regard to age, or ease of placement. To the extent our finances allow, hounds in the greatest need take priority. We are determined to keep administrative expenses extremely low so that virtually every dollar taken in goes directly to the care of the animals. Our group remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the hound dog beyond the adoption process. Finally, we strive to work with area shelters and other rescue organizations to develop a network of supporters and volunteers in order to create a better world for homeless hounds.
