Foster Homes Needed!

Each month, ABC BHR brings up a van load of bassets from Kentucky. We could help our fellow rescues more if we had more foster homes! Foster homes allow us to keep dogs in a home rather than in a boarding kennel. This is better for the dog and saves ABC money. ABC pays for all vet care. We ask that you just provide food, shelter and love. Foster dogs generally stay with their foster families for a week-3 weeks.

MISSOURI PUPPY MILL DOGS

ABC Basset Hound Rescue helped 12 basset hounds this weekend from Missouri. Eleven were used as breeding dogs in a puppy mill. When they were no longer of use to the breeder, he sold them at an auction. The only vetting these dogs had was a rabies shot. ABC had to spay/neuter them, heartworm test them, provide them with DHPP and Bordatella vaccines. They were de-fleaed and de-wormed. Now that they are in NY, a few have had some complications and are back at the vet’s. Please consider donating to ABC so we can continue helping these lucky 12 dogs!
