Help Comes in Many Forms
Donations: The average bill for a rescued hound runs around $375. That includes vaccinations, heartworm testing and spay/neuter. Many of the bassets that come from shelters have medical conditions that can add hundreds of dollars to their rescue bill. Although we do ask for an adoption donation, the amount is often less than the vet bill. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, please send a check made out to GEBR and mailed to:
GEBR P.O. Box 5575Bakersfield CA 93388
Or you can donate through PayPal. See the PayPal button on the left side of the screen.
Sponsoring a specific hound: Some hounds will probably never leave their foster home because of health problems or social issues. You can make an ongoing donation that will be applied to the dog you select.
In Memoriam: You may wish to honor a pet who is At The Bridge (rescuer term for a dog that has passed on).
Foster Homes: A rescued basset normally spends some time in a foster home. The foster family cares for and evaluates the hound's temperment and needs. Some dogs don't get along with children, cats or other dogs. Knowing this helps with placement in the right forever home.
Volunteers: No organization can function without people who plan and carry out activities. Please call, write or email us to ask how you can help.
Adoption: This is the ultimate wish we have for all rescued bassets. To find out how the process works, go to the Adoption Info page.
