Today we will be picking up Jeremiah, a beautiful red and white basset boy with a broken leg and perfect dog temperament. He's headed straight to the vet to see if the leg can be saved.  The bill is promising to be fairly substantial, especially given the worst case scenario of amputation.  If you'd like to contribute to his care, we can accept credit card donations through PayPal, and all other forms at our mailing addresses of either 215 S. 15th Street, Murray, KY 42071 or 133 S. Sunset Circle, Hopkinsville, KY 42240.  All donations are tax deductible as per the IRS and every penny goes to help a basset who otherwsie wouldn't have made it out of a shelter and into a home thru adoption because of his injury.

Thank you so much!!!

It's getting to be that time again--Tax Refund Time!  Why not consider donating a bit of your refund to a very worthy cause--that of helping to feed, shelter and medically treat homeless basset hounds?!  The return on your "investment" is huge--a healthy, happy rescued dog is saved and YOU had a hand in that!!  Not everyone can foster a dog for us, and not everyone can adopt, either, due to house size, allergies, etc.., but you can make the world a warmer, more hospitable place for a basset in need.  The rescued hounds are so very grateful for a chance--would you help us help them? Thank you so much on behalf of homeless basset hound sin Kentucky and Tennessee (Nashville.)
