Why We Need You!
AZBHR's dog related expenses average $15,000 to $20,000 a month. We operate solely on donations and proceeds from our fund raising efforts. Fund raising events such as the Basset Ball are one of our main sources of income to pay those expenses. Our needs keep increasing due to many people facing hardships. It is extremely heartbreaking, we have more hounds than ever that continue to be surrendered or left unclaimed in shelters.  Sadly, some dogs have health conditions that have been neglected due to the expense of treatment the owner could not afford. All dogs taken in by AZBHR are given a complete veterinary evaluation, including vaccinations and spay/neuter if needed. Our expenses include animal shelter fees and continued veterinary care as well as supplies such as leashes, collars, medication, food, etc. The need is great and our goal is to raise as much as possible to continue our mission. We never want to say no and turn away a hound needing our help.

Want to help? We need volunteers!
It take many folks to run a succesfull event! We will need volunteers to help set up in the late morning/afternoon of Saturday August 24, 2019.  We also need volunteers at the thru the actual Ball event to help pack up auction items and input auction bids during the evening.  Please email if you would like to volunteer.
