Mission Statement

Our Mission

The mission of Basenji Rescue & Transport, Inc. is to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home dogs of the basenji breed. BRAT is an all-volunteer organization and has been recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt charitable corporation since its founding in 1999. BRAT rescues basenjis from shelters, abusive situations, and relinquishing owners. We provide routine and advanced veterinary care for our dogs and insure that they have been spayed/neutered and appropriately immunized before placement.

Description

Our 800-plus volunteers foster basenjis in need, evaluate dogs for temperament, obtain necessary training and rehabilitation, and work to place each dog in the best possible home. We also help transport dogs to foster and forever homes, notify responsible breeders when their dogs come into rescue, provide post-adoption counseling to adopters, educate shelters and other rescue organizations about the basenji breed, and assist owners in dealing with basenji behavioral issues in order to prevent dogs from needing to be rescued. Although BRAT's primary mission is the rescue of purebred basenjis, we also notify prospective adopters of basenji mixes who need re-homing.

BRAT operates throughout the United States and Canada; the organization is funded primarily through tax-deductible donations and adoption fees. We are always looking for new volunteers and welcome the assistance of all current and former basenji owners and breeders.
