Help Us Raise Money for Basset Rescue

Well we only have about 2 months before we head off to the 2010 Illinois Basset Waddle in Dwight, IL.  This year it is the 13th Annual Illinois Basset Waddle.  We have been attending for the last 4 years, since Cleo joined our family.

The Waddle is a way that Guardian Angel Basset Rescue GABR can rescue the number of bassets they do.  But times have been tough for lots of families and we have seen an increase in the number of bassets that GABR has been ask to help find fur-ever homes for.  Some of them are found wondering the streets, some are dumped and some families just can no longer care for them due to family situations. As a volunteer transporter for GABR I have brought 9 bassets into rescue since January 2010.  I think maybe I did a total of 10 in 2009, so you can see how important this event is to GABR.

We have set up our own Fundraising page to help us raise money for this great organization that is very dear to our hearts.  You can view our fundraising page here.  All donations are 100% tax-deductible.  Online donations are secure and easy!  However, if you prefer to donate via cash or check you may do that as well.  Just leave me a comment with your email and I will contact you with our mailing address.  All dollars raised go to the care of the bassets.

Also, if you want to take a chance at winning a restored 1968 Corvette just go the GABR link above and purchase your tickets on line.  GABR helps close to 100 different rescues with the raffle of the Corvette.  Don't need to be present to win, because Larry Little will call you in person the day of the drawing.

Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting us.

  11. Hi
    My basset Aunties Martha and Bailey sent me over to say hello. Like them I live in Scotland. Although I myself do not have the good fortune to be a basset, I am very fond of my Aunties and alway do what they recommend. But I must advise you that they do not seem at all happy with the association between the words 'basset' and 'waddle'. They tell me that they wiggle like Marilyn Monroe and I am sure this is correct!
    Wishing you all the best in your wonderful fundraising efforts.
    Toodle pip!
