July Hound of the Month – Courage

Final Courage 4v-dog logoHi, my name’s Courage and I’m July’s Hound of the Month! I’ve recently had a spot of bad luck so I’m feeling really great now that this is going to turn things around!

I used to spend quite a lot of time alone outside and would really like to find a forever home where I get to play and cuddle inside with friends a bit more often. I also think a little more exercise would help me more easily relax during my alone time. In the past I only made it to the dog park once a month, but I’d love to be a more regular visitor! I’d be happy to settle for more walks (Or even swims!) too. Anything to get me out and about!

While I can’t wait to find my forever home, in the meantime I’d really love to get out of boarding and find a stellar foster home, so if you are interested definitely let BHRSC know HERE.

And a bonus of being the Hound of the Month? My adoption fee is half off! So what do you say? If you’re a mover and shaker looking to make a fast new friend, please visit my Homeless Hounds page and give BHRSC a call today!

BHRSC at Angel Stadium a Success!

Check out some of our amazing volunteers, foster families and hounds gathered under the BHRSC LED billboard on the Big A at Angel Stadium!!! Our ad was up for an entire month—this pic was taken on the last day. Glad our hounds got some big exposure!!!


New Volunteer Position Available!

Are you interested in volunteering for BHRSC? We always need volunteers and would love to hear from you. Here are some positions that have recently opened up:

  • Owner/Surrender Facilitator Assistant
  • Owner/Surrender Coordinator
  • Neighborhood Canvasser

Check our Volunteer Page for in-depth descriptions of these, as well as several other open positions. You can also download the volunteer application HERE!


As you may have heard it’s raining hounds at BHRSC! Thanks to your generosity we have raised about $2,000 of the much needed funds to ensure we don’t have to turn away any hounds in need. But as you can see from the bill below which we just received today, we still have a ways to go! Remember this is just one month’s bill from one facility that we use.

Despite using a network of vets and boarding facilities who give us highly discounted rates for top notch care the cost to prepare our hounds for adoption really adds up! A long list of hounds in boardingpaired with many seniors in need of extra TLC has put a greater strain than normal on our funds.

Donate or volunteer to foster now!

The hounds thank you for your continued support and dedication!

The Hounds Need YOU!

Final Jackson Halseth299

Jackson is one of our many dogs that needs your help!

They may say there is a drought in Southern California, but not when it comes to hounds!  The hounds are in urgent need of your help. Since January 1st BHRSC has spent $60,006.02 on boarding and vet bills alone. We have experienced a large number of incoming hounds, many of which are seniors with health issues. We do not currently have enough fosters and half of our available hounds are currently in boarding, which is eating up our precious funds.

Please consider helping the hounds by becoming a foster and /or sending a donation. Because of your generosity BHRSC has not had to turn away any needy hounds for more than two years and we need your help for that streak to continue. Your support is greatly appreciated – the hounds needs us!

Click HERE to donate or Click HERE to become a foster parent.

We owe a “houndful” of thanks to…

Brittany and James Hart!

Thank you for launching our fantastic new web site and keeping pace with all the enhancements suggested! And for taking the time to get the web word out about our hounds.

We couldn’t do it without you.

Thinking about fostering a hound?

Thinking about fostering a hound? Or maybe two hounds? We have bonded hounds that would love to come be a part of your home as they wait for their new forever families to adopt them. If you’ve ever considered opening your home to a hound on a temporary basis, we urge you to fill out an application here and check out our Foster Info page here.

And of course take a look at our homeless hounds page to see which of our amazing hounds need foster homes!
