Meet hundreds of basset hounds and basset lovers, indoor air conditioned/heated comfort, and raise money for the hounds! Come to this years event:
Spring Basset Blast
April 27, 2013 Noon to 4PM
ABC’s 2013 event will be held in Rochester again this year!
ABC’s Basset Hound Rescue's Spring Blast plays a critical role in putting animal rescue efforts into the public spotlight and is one of our largest fundraising events of the year. So, come out with ABC and help support this great breed…there will be games, prizes, shopping and of course, food! All occurring on Saturday April 27, 2013.
Spend an enjoyable day with friends, family and basset hounds rain or shine, hot or cold. There is plenty of onsite parking with a short walk, like going to the mall, to get to the door. Many local hotels to rest your tired body after the days events.
The world famous & largest online basset e-tailer, the Slobber Shoppe will be on hand peddling distinct basset wares for fellow hound lovers. Last year ABC had about 200 hounds…. this year ABC is looking for over 300 hounds to be a part of history… at the largest indoor basset event possible in the northeast.
The average cost to ABC in 2012 was $500 per dog. Last year alone, ABC spent almost $40,000 in vet bills!!!!
It’s a lot of fun and exciting to see hundreds of basset hounds all in one place participating in fun and games. However, let’s not forget what allows us to continue to rescue these homeless and unwanted hounds….YOU!! All of YOU who have volunteered your time, opened up your home for a foster, adopted a dog, and given financial support; this is what allows us to be successful!! With your generosity, ABC has rescued, vetted and adopted out over 700 basset hounds since January 2001…. all bills paid!
We are an all volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 100% of the money received goes directly to the care of New York State's homeless Hounds. Visit us at www.nybasset.org for more information.
