Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia, Inc. is just one of 35,000+ groups listed by members at iGive. Here's a little more detail on them, as provided by members or the organization itself:
Basset Hound Rescue of Georgia, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer effort to save abandoned and mistreated basset hounds for the love of the breed. Our rescue effort began in 1991, and we have rescued over 1,700 bassets since then. Initially, only two volunteers privately funded Basset Hound Rescue. Today, BHRG is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization, which exists solely on donations.
Rescued bassets are from pounds or shelters, are strays whose owners cannot be found, or are relinquished by owners who no longer want them. Changing lifestyles, the economy, and lack of responsibility are some of the reasons for the abundance of abandoned basset hounds. And this problem is not specific to bassets only but is true of all breeds and mixed breeds. Be sure to check out our Basset Links page for a complete list of basset rescues across the U.S.
BHRG takes the orphaned bassets into foster care, where they are loved and cared for until permanent adoptive homes can be found. BHRG also provides veterinary care which includes vaccinations, deworming, heartworm treatment (if needed), and spaying or neutering.
Total raised through iGive: $3,395.41
