Bassetfest is normally our biggest fundraiser of the year and we LOVE to meet all of you and your wonderful hounds!
Last year we had to do it virtually, for the safety of all of our volunteers and all of YOU, our basset families! We hope to be back LIVE in 2021!
What is Bassetfest you ask? Bassetfest is our biggest fundraiser and consists of raffle baskets, auctions, costume contest, biggest paw and longest ear contests, calendar, and T-shirt sales and of course the BASSET RACES! And most importantly we have YOU and YOUR BASSETS! Please scroll down to see pics from past year's Bassetfests!
Thank you all for your help and generosity keeping us up and running during 2020! It is through the generosity of all of our donors that we are able to do what we do for the hounds! Please explore our website and see how you can help!
You can be a monthly donor and spread out donations through the year! It's tax deductible!
You can help us by fostering or transporting our hounds! We are always looking for new volunteers!
