Posting a purebred Basenji here implies that you are asking Basenji Rescue and Transport Inc. (BRAT) to help you place your dog(s) with a new family or individual.

If you are posting a Basenji mix you acknowledge that BRAT is not responsible for the adoption process for this dog, including screening potential adopters, sponsoring the pup, and collecting any fees. This dog's placement will be a private adoption between the current owner/shelter and the adopter.

Our BRAT volunteers will evaluate your application and may be in contact with you before we determine whether we can assist you. BRAT does not guarantee that we will be able to help find your dog a new home.

Please note that neither BRAT nor the family or individual adopting your purebred Basenji is expected to compensate you any amount for the dog. If you are posting a Basenji mix, you may require that the adopter pay a nominal fee to ensure that applicants are serious about the best interest of your dog. If you are a shelter asking for help placing a Basenji mix, you should note in the dog's write-up that your fees will apply.

Ideally, the Basenji should come with a crate (one in good condition), be current on all shots and heartworm medication, have been spayed/neutered, and have recent results from a fecal test. If your Basenji is not up-to-date on vetting—or if you're in a position to help—it would be greatly appreciated if you would make a donation to us to help off-set our costs while the dog is in our care, waiting for its forever home. The BRAT representative that contacts you may discuss this with you and explain how your money will be used.

Answer as completely as you can. Any information you can not supply, leave blank. PLEASE NOTE: The information you leave may be posted either on this Web site and/or on BRAT-owned mailing lists of volunteers and applicants. In other words, it will become public information. You may want to review our Privacy Policy. Click the link to read.

Please do not be intimidated by the length of this form. The more information supplied about the dog, the better a match can be made with a new owner.

Please note: Neither Basenji Rescue & Transport Inc. (BRAT), nor its volunteers, coordinators, representatives, Internet service provider and its officers, employees, contractors and representatives; and any other person, firm or corporation involved with the efforts or business of this corporation, shall be held liable or responsible for any claims or causes of action incurred as a result of the provision or restriction of information, services, contacts, adoptions, fostering, veterinary care or by the actions of any and all dogs transferred or referenced herein.
