OUR RESCUES COST US MUCH MORE TO VET AND RETURN TO HEALTH THAN WE RECOVER IN ADOPTION FEES. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DONATE ON TOP OF THE REQUESTED FEE OR DONATE EVEN IF YOU AREN'T ADOPTING PLEASE CONSIDER DOING SO. ANY AMOUNT HELPS. DONATIONS CAN BE MADE BY PAYPAL OR BY MAILING TO THE DIRECTOR'S ADDRESS BELOW.
All SCBC available hounds are spayed/neutered, current on their shots and heartworm prevention, and are micro chipped. We register the chips with a AKC CAR which has a life-time registry with no fees.
Bloodhounds in our program are home fostered which allows us to get good assessments on their temperament, personalities, etc. Please talk with your adoption coordinator to determine what dogs are available and which one might be the right fit for your family.
Adoption applications usually take just a couple of days to process. If you like a dog that is not in your state help with transportation arrangements can be made for an adoption.
We also do foster-to-adopt. For information on our foster program please click on Foster A Bloodhound

Through no fault of her own, Miss Rita has returned to our program. Rita can be summed up in one word: sweet, sweet, sweet! She gets along with everyone and just wants to be loved. She is housebroken and crate triained. Rita will play with other dogs and loves to sleep on the couch or bed with you. She is fine with kitties inside but will bark at them if outside of the fence. She has had a rough go in life and deserves to have a forever retirement home of her own. You can't go wrong with Rita, she is as steady as they come.
*Rita will probably have medical needs for her ears for the rest of her life.
Olive and her partner were picked up as strays on a farm. Both were in rough shape though Olive was worse. Olive had a 4 inch growth on her foot, tumors on her mammary gland, and needed to add about 15 pounds. And when we did her spay we discovered severely deformed puppies. She had been bred multiple times, her canine teeth are worn to half their length though we believe her to only be around 4 years of age. And yet her desire to be with humans and be loved is huge. She had no idea what it was to be in a house but now that she has discovered how nice it can be she doesn't want to go far. She just wants to be comfortable and loved. She is active but mostly wants a couch and a human.
Ellie is a beautiful and extremely loving and affectionate girl! She gets along great with dogs and kids of all sizes. She would make a great companion for almost any family! Ellie, like most bloodhounds, does struggle with food aggression and toy possessiveness. Her foster is currently working with her to overcome this.
Ellie and Loretta (another bloodhound available through SCBC Rescue) have been fostered in the same home and are great friends. While they can be adopted individually, if you were interested in two females, they make a great pair!
Loretta is a very energetic, young girl! Despite the unfortunate circumstances of being bounced from house to house, she is pretty resilient and remains a sweet and fun-loving dog. She seems to do well with dogs and children. Being as energetic as she is, Loretta would benefit from a home with a large yard or even someone that enjoys long walks or runs. She will make a great companion for most families!
Loretta and Ellie (another hound available through SCBC Rescue) are great friends and would be a good pair if you would be interested in adopting two bloodhounds, but they would also do well if adopted out separately.
HECTOR ADOPTION PENDING
Hector came to SCBC after spending over a month in a shelter in NM and seemed to have a rough go of it. Hector is currently on the mend and is looking for his forever home. He walks well on a leash and is a pretty easy going and sweet guy.
Logan is a playful and loving young man. If you like a dog that loves attention, playing, and snuggling on the couch, he may be the perfect fit. He had a rough start in his early life, but is proving to be an amazing companion. Logan will require a patient owner that is a firm believer in positive reinforcement. He is crate trained, walks well on a leash, and housebroken. Logan also does extremely well with children. He has seen cats and not shown any aggression, but never been in close quarters with a cat.
Maggie is an older dog. We think she may have been owned by an older person as she appears to have been an inside dog who is loved but recently neglected. She will need work on her teeth and to have a mammary tumor removed but is ready to go back to being someone's love. She is a very small girl but has a big heart.
NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL MEDICALTREATMENTS ARE FINISHED
Marsha is a very loving, funny, and active girl. She came to us with demodectic mange and heartworm positive. Her coat now glows and she will finish her heartworm treatment on 7/31. She has an amazing personality and absolutely loves to be inside with humans and other dogs. We believe she will also be good with children. We are guessing her age to be somewhere around 18 months but until some of us with more experience get a chance to look at her we're guessing. Her fee is $250.
Nellie came to SCBC as an owner surrender where the owner stated that they did not have time to care for her. She spent her days tied out on a chain in the yard with very little affection and interaction. Despite her lack of human/animal interaction, she seems to be well-adjusted and craves love and attention. She does well with children, cats, and other dogs. Nellie is also housebroken, crate trained, walks well on a leash, and loves to ride in the car. She is a very energetic young girl and would do well in a home that can provide her with lots of attention and exercise. Nellie will need a tall fence as she can and will jump over to go explore!
Sofie is as laid back as they come. She is great with dogs (big and small) and loves kids! There is a great debate about her age, but no one can be sure as she did come from the shelter with no information. The vet estimate her to be around 5-6 years old, but the microchip date indicates that she is at least 9. She’s a great companion and loves to snuggle!
Sofie is crate-trained, housebroken, and up-to-date on her vaccinations. She does have some broken teeth that she is scheduled to have extracted, but eats hard and soft food with no issues. She is heartworm positive and will need to go through her treatment before she continues her journey to her forever home.
COOPER NEEDS A WORKING HOME
Cooper is a loving and energetic boy. He does well with other dogs, kids, and all humans! Cooper is housebroken. He will need a strong household who is very experienced with the breed and willful dogs. He does not take well to being pushed in a rough manner but does have to be managed. His fee is $250.
Cooper has the potential to be a great working hound!
Luke is about as easy going as they come, but he has a lot of energy and can be very rough in his play. He loves to be the center of attention and will even pose for pictures. This has made him the poster dog for South Central Bloodhound Club & Rescue events! Luke is very high energy and strong willed, but in the proper home, will make an excellent companion.
Katrina is a new arrival and we are just finding out more about her. We do know that she is heartworm positive and a very gently gal!
Holly is a new arrival and we are just finding out more about her. We do know that she is heartworm positive and appears to be extremely sweet!
Juno is an absolute doll of a girl who is perfect for the family just getting into bloodhounds or the family with young children or elderly members. She is easy going, very loving, and still willing to play within reason. Her adoption fee is $100 and a fenced yard is required.
Diego is a very sweet young boy of two who really likes to play and be with his people. He is currently undergoing heartworm treatment but is available to a home who will work with us before it is complete. He'll be finished around the first of Oct. His fee is $250 and a fenced yard is required.
Found in Greeley, Colorado, 40 miles from where he was chipped in Hudson, Colorado, this beautiful boy is a lover and a keeper! After being nursed back to health, Buford now weighs, 99 lbs and is heartworm free. The original owner was tracked down and told the previous foster to “do with him what you’d like. I don’t want him.” That is when she opted to change his name from Sherman to Buford. When found he weighed only 70 lbs. We think he is 4 years old. He plays well with our other bloodhound, Boscoe, and our Bluetick, Maxine. We also have Schlick the cat. He doesn’t even acknowledge the cat, so no worries at this time with small animals. Being alone and on the run, he now likes to make sure his humans are in sight. He will hang by your side and has great recall for a bloodhound. Haven’t tried him off leash, though. No dietary concerns or health issues that we can see. We have a four foot split rail with chicken wire and he hasn’t been able to get out of the yard, so I don’t think he is a jumper! Fenced yard required. Fee $250
Beauregard is an older boy who pretty much just wants to get himself a home. He was an owner surrender and had pretty good care but is heartworm postitive. He's started treatment and will be finished by the end of Oct. He could go to the right home to finish. His adoption fee is $100 and a fenced yard is required.
Cash is believed to be a Majestic, which is a bloodhound/coonhound cross. He is very energetic and likes other dogs but can be a bully and needs another dog who is confident without being confrontational. If he went to an only dog home he would have to be given a lot of exercise. He needs someone who knows dogs. He can be pretty noisy at times. His fee is $250 and a fenced yard is required.
