Yesterday, December 5th, ABC held their first ever adoption event at Boom Towne Canine Campus in Farmington, NY. A total of 15 bassets were available yesterday and 11 went straight to their forever homes. Though we were sad to see some of our favorites go, we are more happy that they are going to the best homes there are! The few that were not adopted on Saturday have all gone to foster homes, but many not for long. Patsy, Cesar, Conway, and Sammy Jo all have people very interested in them so they will be going home for the Howlidays and we do expect a few foster failures! We are sure Saturday marked the first day of the best part of all of these dogs lives and wish the dogs and owners all the happiness in the world!

In addition to the wide success of the adoptions, we also raised over $300 for the second batch of puppy mill bassets, set to arrive this Friday, December 11. Expect the next adoption event the following weekend, just before Christmas! We also sold plenty of merchandise from the Slobber Shoppe and had quite a few people sign up to be new volunteers and foster homes!

Everyone at ABC wants to thank everyone who made yesterday possible, including Ozark Mountain Basset Rescue, Hounds Haven Basset Rescue, Boom Towne Canine Campus and all employees, the volunteers who visited the hounds every day, the volunteers who helped out at the adoption event and especially our adopters!

Check back soon for pictures of the adoption event and next weekend for the new batch of hounds!

    Just wanted to let everyone know that sweet Hattie is doing very well. We just adore her. Thanks so much for all that you do. I have learned so much since I researched your site. She truly is a Thanksgiving gift. We both have so much to be thankful for.

  3. Annabelle wanted us to inform everyone that she is settling in nicely in her forever home and she likes her basset brother and two other basset sisters. She also wanted to thank everyone for rescuing her and getting her to a loving family that is spoiling her rotten :)

  4. Thank you for sharing their progress with us. Keep the stories coming.

  5. Chet is doing great, he is adjusting well and had decided that he likes people and most of all thinks he is a puppy again, he is doing crazy puppy stuff. We celebrated his 5th birthday today and he loved ALL of the attention he was getting. Thank you ABC for bringing these sweet dogs to New York for adoption. You are all very dedicated people

  6. Do you have pictures from the event?
