Over the years GABR has rescued over 4000 Bassets! Our volunteers have
driven thousands of miles and in some cases have flown to rescue a Basset that may
have been abused, is ill , lost a home due to a death in the family or in some cases
the owners could no longer afford to provide properly for their Basset. What ever the
reason, GABR is there to the extent of our financial resources. We can not rescue all
the Bassets that need us for that would be impossible due to the numbers in need.
We set limits on the number we rescue to fit within our financial capabilities and the
number of foster homes we have available to take in dogs. We do this because we
plan to be around for a long time to come.

Our "
Illinois Waddle" in September and Auction in April of each year have not only
provided funds for GABR but also allow us to make more people aware of our
cause.  Again, this is all possible because of our dedicated volunteers.  

GABR is faced each month, week and day with life and death decisions.  No matter
how much love we have for the Basset and no matter how badly we want to save
every one that comes to us, the real world forces decisions based on time and

We realize not everyone has time to foster, to help set up the auction, to chair a
committee for the Waddle,  or volunteer time at all.
