Bassetpalooza is a fun-filled day to help raise money for us to continue in our efforts to provide homeless bassets with medical care and other needs they may have in order to prepare them for finding their forever homes. It’s a day for all bassets, their human servants, and anyone looking to learn more about the breed or considering adopting a basset to come together to have some laughs, play some games, take part in the awesome raffles, and of course — love on some bassets!!
