|Buford Escorted into a New Life by Two Wonderful Ladies|
Terri Davis, CEO and founder of 'Jewelry to Benefit Paws' and Pet Memorial design who works tirelessly for homeless and abused animals all across the South, saw the post and set about pulling and placing them. Since foster homes across the South are full, Terri and her fellow hound lovers, have taken on the huge task of networking with rescues all across the country to pull Bassets from shelters and get them into temporary foster homes. She has people from the regions around her covering GA, TN and AL. They are saving as many lives as they possibly can without funding of any kind. Terri sets up online chipins to help defray the expenses for gas and vetting. They have rescued several Bassets and placed them in forever homes. Terri set up this Facebook page to save and place as many Bassets as they can into caring homes Basset Hound Rescuers (Alabama) and Surrounding States. (They are short on foster homes so if you live in that area and have an empty place on your couch for a Basset foster please check them out!)
Thank you to Terri for posting such beautiful photos of her foster boys!

Terri received help from Robert Hudson to get the boys pulled from the shelter and Belly Rubs Rescue volunteer, Anne Jacoby, transported them to Terri's home. Margaret Whitaker Lewis also helped Terri brainstorm the plan to spring the boys from the shelter. With no homes to be found Terri housed the boys herself, along with her own 3 Bassets and 3 other dogs! Terri said she absolutely fell in love with these guys and wished they could have stayed longer. That's a hound lover! She posted and tried to get them a home in the local area, but unable to find anyone to step up and adopt them she worked with Belly Rubs to get them aboard the Southern transport which landed them in Buffalo, NY on 3/24.
Along with many other Causes Terri coordinates, she set up a Basset Hound Rescue Cause page to raise money for Basset Hound Rescues across the country. She rotates between each once a month. After the first Southern transport ABC completed in January, Terri set up the following Cause page for ABC - Help ABC Basset Hound Rescue Raise Funds - which has raised a whopping $475 the first two nights it was up. Special thanks to Angela McMahan Showalter for her $200.00 donation!
Billy Bob was adopted the very next morning at Camp Bow Wow at the Breakfast for Bassets event in Tonawanda, NY. He is doing well with his new family and loves playing with his two-legged brothers and sisters.
