A busy little blog, but full of interesting news, hounds and prizes!
Recently, we have been joined by a small team of ladies who are making a big effort indeed, running some fantastic online fundraisers for us on our facebook groups. Sally, Jo, Jane, Gill, Steph and Catherine are putting their heads together and coming up with some fabulous ideas on how we can raise money to help our basset hounds. Funding is so desperately needed, as our vet's bills are enormous, but it's important to us that none of our bassets go without, which is why our fundraisers are so important.
Currently, we have an amazing fundraiser taking place, Sally has organised Clara and Rolf's Fundraiser for us...follow the link below to be added, for a chance to win some incredible basset paraphernalia...most of which is not even available in the UK! You need to be quick though, bidding will end on Friday November 24th!
Just look what you could win...Even the chance for some rare Fred Basset stuff, not to be missed!
Look at all of these beauties, having found their forever homes! It's been a busy spell, but it's been worth it!
