NOTE: The B.C.O.C. Rescue Program Does NOT BUY Dogs.

    MISSION: 

The Mission of the B.C.O.C. Rescue Program is dedicated to helping any
(purebred) Basenjis in need. 
      Which means: 
      1. Effecting a release of a purebred Basenji from a pound, 
	   shelter, or any unhealthy environment.....which may mean 
	   paying “pound” fees or other necessary expenses to obtain 
	   the dog. 
      2. Accepting Basenjis which may be turned over to the B.C.O.C. 
	   Rescue Program by their owners. 
      3. Accepting Basenjis into the B.C.O.C. Rescue Program by people 
	   who have found them. 
      4. Monitoring areas where the B.C.O.C. Rescue Program volunteers 
	   are located to try to assist wherever possible. 
      5. Assisting anyone who contacts the B.C.O.C. Rescue Program 
	   because of Behavioral Problems: we try to help by giving 
	   advice, conducting home visits, suggesting alternatives, 
	   or just providing support until an improvement of the 
	   situation.

What the B.C.O.C. Rescue Program does: 

        Once a Basenji is accepted into the B.C.O.C. Program, B.C.O.C. 
        volunteers arrange: 
     1. To foster the Basenji.
     2. To update the Basenji’s medical files. 
           A. Have the dog Vet-checked if no vaccinations records can 
		be found or obtained. 
           B. Have the dog neutered before placing. 
     3. To accept applications for the purebred Basenji. 
     4. To screen potential adopters. 
     5. To make a placement decision. 
     6. To arrange transportation of the Basenji to its new home in the 
	   most economical and safest manner possible. 
     7. To maintain a list of rescue contact volunteers who are available 
	   to assist the B.C.O.C. Rescue Program. 

	It should be noted that all B.C.O.C. members are asked to help 
	find homes for any rescued Basenji which enters the B.C.O.C. 
	Rescue Program. 

What the B.C.O.C. Rescue Program looks for in adoptive homes: 

	 The B.C.O.C. Rescue Program looks for *FOREVER HOMES* where 
	 these Basenjis can live out their lives surrounded by caring 
	 owners who understand them and where they will be loved and 
	 pampered companions. 

	 It should be noted that, fortunately, most Canadian Breeders 
	 take back unwanted dogs which they have bred, or will find 
	 them new homes.
