Congratulations to Mary Elliott, our relinquish coordinator, who was named "Volunteer of the Year"! Mary acquired the golden basset statue for the year. Thanks to Mary for all of her hard work and dedication.
Our top prize winner for the "Lucky 7" Raffle was Joe Kula. Joe and his wife, Kathy, have adopted 2 bassets from ABC and bought their winning ticket at Buffalo's "Breakfast with Bassets" last month. Kathy has already promised part of her winnings back to ABC! Congratulations Joe & Kathy!
Foster homes were reunited with their past fosters, tears of joy were shed when we saw Maggie meeting her new mom for the first time. Tears of sadness when we watched 15 people whose dogs have passed away get a paw pin and rainbow bridge print.
ABC would like to thank everyone who attended the waddle, sponsored our waddlers, donated to the auction, bought shirts and bought and sold raffle tickets. Without this support, we could not continue our mission of saving homeless basset hounds!
