Urgent Support Needed for Bailey!

We received a call on Friday evening from a rescue partner that a 6 month old female basset named Bailey was just surrendered to them and hospitalized at their vet.

Bailey could not walk, had severe skeletal deformities from bad breeding and needed more medical care than they could provide. Thanks to a network of some amazing partners and friends in the South, we left immediately and drove hundreds of miles to pick her up. We took her to The University of Pennsylvania where she was admitted for additional testing. Bailey is a sweet girl who has life left to live but she is in bad shape. Her prognosis is promising at this point but will require very expensive further testing. She is scheduled to receive an MRI and from there we will know more about how to proceed with her treatment. One possibility is that Bailey has a tumor on her spine and if so, there will be nothing more we can do for her. Her neurologist is hopeful that she does not and that we can give this baby a chance at life. Bailey is happy, she wags her tail, give kisses, gets excited, enjoys bones and treats and she loves to be petted. We will do everything in our power to give this sweet baby a chance at a normal, happy life. We are not sure what the future will hold at this point but cannot save her without the financial help and prayers of our generous supporters. Please consider making a donation now towards Bailey’s diagnosis and treatment. This sweet little girl needs our help. Thank you!

Howl-O-Ween Party -- Saturday October 24th, 2020
Due to COVID-19 we have regretfully decided to cancel our annual BassetFest Picnic in September and our Howliday Party in December. This was a very tough decision for us to make as these are two fun events and help raise critical funds to help us save more hounds in need. Unfortunately, we do not feel certain that we can enforce required state guidelines regarding masks, social distancing and food service at a public park (where BassetFest is held) or an indoor hall (where the Howliday Party is held).  
However, we have partnered with some local businesses in PA and NJ, which are graciously hosting us at their locations for a few October fundraiser events! See all of our event details here!
