3) BaRNI is seeking a vinyl wrap banner advertisement for the van from corporates. Good fortune has smiled upon BARNI in the form of a “new” transportation van for the hounds. Purchased from Guide Dogs for the Blind, it's in excellent condition, with very low mileage, a custom-built animal transportation van that’s 9 feet long, 6.5 feet tall, with 12 built-in kennels for a comfortable ride for both driver and hounds.

Shelter needs your help to keep the shelter open due to the economic crisis. People have no jobs and cannot donate. Folks have no homes and they abandoned their animals to shelter.
They rescue basset hound and basset mixes in Los Angeles. One hundred hounds are awaiting forever families. FOSTER HOMES and VOLUNTEERS are urgently needed.
Bill collectors keep hounding basset rescue owner 11/10/09 Associated Press's article on 11/10/2009 said:
"LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The basset hounds at Daphneyland aren't the only ones with long, sad faces.
Donations to the nation's largest basset hound rescue have never been so low, bills so overdue, the need so crucial or the help so thin, said Dawn Smith, Daphneyland's president and founder.
Every day, she looks at 100 basset hounds and wonders how she will feed them, heal them, bathe them, keep them warm or even give them a drink of water.
"We are bringing in $5,200 a month in donations and we need $10,000 to survive," Smith said.
Animal rescues and shelters have suffered during the recession, particularly in states like California, Florida, Nevada and Arizona where the real estate boom busted the loudest, said Stephen L. Zawistowski, executive vice president for national programs and science adviser for The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals....."
We cannot let one hundred hounds to be the casualty of this economic crisis. Their owners lost jobs, homes and the animals were dumped at the shelter.
Now, their shelter is at risk. Where would these animals go?
The caretakers love and take good care of them.
Love alone is NOT good enough to keep the rescue animals alive. The shelter needs a lot of money to pay for their quality food, vet bills, and the essentials.
Please help one hundred dogs keep their shelter by donating money.
