I have adopted 2 bassets from “The Acton Ranch.” In addition I rescued an abused & sick Basset from the San Bernardino shelter. I had to pay $75.00 to allow this dog to be taken to my vet rather than wait 24 hours to be spayed. The vet in Rimforest said he should be put down because he had untreated pneumonia and would only live a few hours. I disagreed. I requested the appropriate medicine & shots, brought him home and called Dawn. He was skin & bones, injuries from being attacked, balls hanging on the ground, skin & bones. Dawn guided me through his care. After three months he finally barked. Three years later, alive, good health, & he loves everybody. Thank you!
You can choose Basset Hound Rescue as your charity on Amazon. Many years ago my mom was in the hospital. I was so upset and needed to escape the sadness. I drove to Acton and hung out with these sweet dogs. I stayed to watch the dogs come running down the hill after the shelter closed. What a joyful place to be for the dogs & the volunteers.
Their kindness to me helped me get through a difficult time. Again, thank you.
