If you're serious about adopting a Basenji from BRAT, be sure to visit our application to adopt a Basenji page. After you've submitted this application, explore the listings below. In each listing, you will find the coordinator's name that links to a contact form. You will need to contact the dog's coordinator in each listing.
We encourage you to fill out an application to adopt, even if there are currently no dogs listed in your state. We may have dogs that will be available soon, but are in various stages of our intake process. Sometimes when we have a dog that needs emergency placement, we check our applicant database to find a pre-approved home that matches the dog's needs.
Our goal is to make the perfect match between your home and the Basenji. This can be challenging, so please be patient.
Each rescue will be fully vetted. This includes spay and neuter, vaccines, flea preventative if appropriate, DNA testing purebreds under 10 for Fanconi syndrome, fecal testing and deworming if necessary, heartworm testing, and recommended dental work. All dogs over 10 get a senior panel. Also, when indicated, we test our dogs for thyroid deficiencies.
The dogs are also temperament evaluated. Please note that BRAT charges an adoption fee to cover all expenses incurred in our rescue program. The adoption fee will vary depending on the age and health of the dog. The adoption fee is listed within the dog's posting.
