ABC Teams with GA & TN Basset Rescue to Save 9 Hounds

ABC volunteers transporting Tobey1, Herman, Chip, and Marla from back to front.
Friday, 4/27, around 5:30pm, 9 basset hounds will be completing their long journey up from the South to find their forever homes in NY.   ABC Basset Rescue has teamed up with BellyRubs Basset Rescue of TN and Basset Hound Rescue of GA to help relieve their overburdened systems.  All too often rescues in the south have to turn away these irresistible floppy eared friends due to the sheer volume of hounds in need of rescue.   ABC is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that has rescued over 700 hounds since 2001.  ABC is in the unique position of having more adopters than bassets which allows us to help out some of our Rescue friends down South.   ABC Basset Rescue will be hosting the Spring Basset Blast at the Rochester City Fairgrounds in Henrietta, NY on Saturday, 4/28, from noon to 6pm.  These 9 will join our current fosters in finding that perfect forever home at the event!  The hounds will be staying overnight in Farmington, NY at Boom Towne Canine Campus where a group of ABC volunteers and Boom Towne staff will be there to give them a big NY welcome!

They will then make the trip over to Minnett Hall at the Rochester City Fairgrounds in Henrietta Saturday morning so that they are all ready for the big event starting at noon. Besides the Adoption Event at the Blast, ABC is expecting our largest turnout of hounds & hound supporters, with over 200 hounds expected to be off-leash this day!  This will be the largest gathering of Basset Hounds New York State has ever seen!
