Remembering Melody

ABC mourns the loss of one of our ABC family members,  Melody Wolfe, our donation coordinator and friend, who lost her battle with cancer March 24.
Melody tirelessly emailed, posted, called, messaged, bugged, bothered, asked and begged people for items to raffle off at ABC events. She raised thousands of dollars to help bassets that she has never even met. She will surely be missed, but we can be assured that she is already wrangling all of the homeless hounds who have been waiting at The Rainbow Bridge for an amazing rescuer like her to arrive.

PLEASE CONSIDER A DONATION IN MELODY’S MEMORY▸

SPRING BASSET BLAST

Mark your calendar for ABC’s biggest social event of the year…The Spring Basset Blast! The Blast will be held Saturday, April 25th at the Dome in Henrietta (Rochester). We will have games, contests, music, and over 300 basset hounds. It will be inside, so let it rain!
