The Spring Basset Blast was a great success again this year. We had over 250 attendees and 180 dogs all off leash running around the Staples building in Rochester, NY.
The day was packed with a few great vendors, games and activities for hounds and humans alike. The Slobber Shoppe was there in full effect and sold alot of great Basset items; including the new Basset Hound Sweatshirt made exclusively for ABC (if you haven’t gotten yours yet you can find it here http://theslobbershoppe.com/bhhoodies.aspx).
We had almost 90 Chinese Auction baskets that were raffled off and a ton of silent auction items; which included lots of handmade basset/dog related items. All to benefit homeless Basset Hounds!!!
Our Money raffle ended the day of the Blast and all of our winners were chosen. Here are the winners…

We would like to thank all of our amazing volunteers who helped to make the Spring Basset Blast happen this year…from planning to set-up to help during the event and to all who stayed for tear-down. If it wasn’t for our volunteers we couldn’t put any of this together and we couldn’t continue to help all of the hounds that we do. Thank you so very much!!
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended this year’s event!! Thank you for your continued support of ABC. We hope that you all had an amazing time. We hope to see you all next year back at The Dome!!!!!!
