News & Events

It’s Time for Our End of Year Match Campaign!

Bentley Bentley is helping us remind you that 2021 is nearing it’s end!

2021 has been another crazy-busy year for Utah Friends of Basset Hounds. To date, we’ve taken in 94 Hounds. A group of nine Bassets came to us from an irresponsible breeder; four need orthopedic surgeries to correct birth defects. Close to 60 came from high kill shelters. We’ve had 12 heart worm positive hounds this year and two serious cases of pancreatitis; Miss BeBe required 14 days of hospitalization! There’s never much left in our bank accounts by December and this year is no exception.

There’s always another who needs our help and sometimes it’s a whole family. Making her way to us, even as I write this, is a sweet little girl who is very, very pregnant. A baby herself, the doctor tells us she will deliver eight puppies. You’ll never hear us say, “There’s no room at the inn,” but we could use some help with a quieter foster home for her and her soon-to-be family.

The good and even great news is that all of the hounds who needed our help got it. Most have been or are ready to find their forever family. AND, a generous donor is getting our End of the Year Match Campaign off to a great start with the offer of matching the first $5,000 of donations that we receive. We would be able to finish getting everyone ready to be adopted and get dentals on the rest of our Forever Fosters who need them.

Bently and his new cart have shown us what determination and commitment can do. While he did not get thorough that dog door; his foster mom did help him back up and opened the whole door so he could make it through. In one way or another, we’re doing the same every day for each and every hound who finds his or her way to us; helping them make it through.

With your donation (which will be matched) we’ll be able to continue our commitment to save lives. And, with the determination of our veterinarians, volunteers, fosters, adopters, and donors we’ll all make it through whatever comes along.

Utah Friends of Basset Hounds thanks you for whatever amount you may be able to donate. We hope you and yours have a safe and happy holiday season!
