Basset Rescue of Florida, Inc. is a not for profit charity with 501c3 status with the IRS. Donations made to our Rescue are tax deductible as allowed by law. The Rescue is also registered with the State of Florida as a non-profit corporation and with the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services allowing us to legally accept donations.
Our work is funded from donations, both large and small, from people like you. Most of our donations go straight for veterinary care as each Basset Hound arrives. The majority of them need to be spayed or neutered, given a full set of vaccinations, a microchip, and a heartworm test (with subsequent treatment if positive). Many of the Basset Hounds also need surgery for things such as suspicious masses, dental care, and eye issues. During their stay with us, our routine expenses are food, monthly flea, tick, and heartworm medications as well as other normal day to day expenses relating to caring for a Basset Hound. Most of you know how expensive one dog can be….imagine those expenses times 10 or 15!
Since our Rescue is small and we devote most of our spare time to caring for the Basset Hounds and getting them adopted, there is little time to raise funds. You can help us in several ways.
