East2West Hound Transfer, a volunteer based, nonprofit, focuses on the plight of hound dogs used for hunting, bred in puppy mills, or available in mass quantities without adoption interest, in certain US states. These dogs are typically young and friendly. They have a high probability of being abused, abandoned by owners, and quickly put to sleep in large numbers when relinquished to Animal Control facilities. Locations rampant with these breeds are Southern States, Mid- West, East Coast (KY, WV, Carolina’s down to Florida). These hunting dogs, more often than not, are treated inhumanely by hunters, and sometimes shot in the head, or left in the woods to die when hunting season is over. The "lucky" ones are relinquished in large numbers to high kill, mainly rural shelters, where their days are numbered. Due to an abundance of these breeds, most never get out alive.


Breeds considered: Beagle, Coonhound, Treeing Walker CoonHound, Red Tick, Blue Tick, Red Bone & Bassett.

 These hound breeds are not as plentiful on the West Coast, and the demand for them there is high. East2West Hound Transfer is dedicated to providing transport for hound breeds from those high kill states to the West Coast. Once there, they are placed with ethical hound-savvy rescue organizations that work as partners within our program. Here they will be safe until our partner organizations find them their forever homes.

East2West Hound Transfer is a 501(C)3  non profit organization as a DBA of Tail is Up Foundation, Inc. Please make a donation to help bring the hounds home!
