Rescuing a stray basenji

@mckay definitely go with Basenji Rescue And Transport https://www.basenjirescue.org/ They will help you quickly and have a large group of people who they can find a good home with. I volunteer with them and have donated to them for years, you can trust them.

@dagodingo - This looks to be a mix. BRAT has links for the group that helps with mix breeds

I am one of the Basenji mix coordinators for Basenji Rescue And Transport. Contact me at giza.1@mcsnet.ca and I can let you know what BRAT can do do to help you out.

In what state are you located?
You are a kind and compassionate person (as most dog lovers are). Thank you for saving this little guy's life!

Thank you. I do love dogs and all animals and can't stand to see them suffer. I am in Texas. I just wrote Joanne to see if she can help me out with this little guy. Thank you so much!

@mckay Awesome and I am sure some good Karma coming your way for helping!

This guy is terminally adorable and you are terminally great for helping.

Where I am this guy would be adopted in a heartbeat but Texas is a whole different ballgame. Kudos for your work.

Ditto for where I am. I move a lot of dogs out of Texas, I don't think I've moved any dog TO Texas. (no, that's not true, I just moved one OK to TX... same difference).

Hi Joanne. We lived in Texas briefly and were surprised by the lack of shelters/adoption facilities. You almost expect that in rural areas, but we lived in the Woodlands, which was a planned development north of Houston.

Here there is a "service" which picks up dogs, mostly from the Central Valley (CA), and takes them to NorCal, the Pacific NW, and BC. Seems as though spay/neuter has been so successful there that there are more homes than dogs. Here, in addition to no kill shelters, including a program for pets of abused women), the City "Pound" is super nice, with rooms complete with couches for the dogs and cats (makes them more adoptable), courtesy of a bequest by Joan Kroc (McDonalds).
