News & Events

It’s Almost Waddle Time!

Stella at the Waddle


We “Waddle” with our Bassets in the Annual Salt Lake City St. Patrick’s Day Parade. You’ll hear the folks “Aarrooooing” for us as we pass by the crowds who gather along the street. If you have an older hound or one not able to keep up on foot…or paw… we’ll have a Pooped Pup Pick-up Truck! We’re also encouraging folks to bring wagons or lawn carts for their hounds to ride in. We have to keep up with the rest of the parade, so bring wheels if you think your hound will need to ride part of the way. Remember, we have to walk back to the start of the parade where our cars are parked so we’re really doing about two miles.

The comfort and safety of your hounds comes first.

If you’re not sure yours will have a good time “Waddling”, you can volunteer to walk one of our fosters, or help another family who has multiple hounds. (Call 801-915- DOGS to get on this list.)

Why and How Do I Get PLEDGES?

Our fundraising goal for the 2019 Wasatch Waddle is $5,000! We realize that this goal might seem lofty but we’re confident that with your help UFBH can reach it! Collect pledges from friends and family to support your participation and UFBH.

UFBH has seen a huge increase in the number of hounds needing help. In nearly 17 years we’ve taken in over 1,800 Basset Hounds; $5,000 would go a long way toward our goal of never turning a Basset Hound in need away. 100% of the money you raise goes to veterinary and daily expenses for the hounds in our care.

Registration and more information is available online.
