Greetings from the country! My name is Daisy Aspen. I am a senior gal who enjoys my part time job in Public Relations at TAC, a horse farm in Silk Hope NC. My duties include napping, burying my bones, walking the barn aisles to check on the horses, greeting customers and keeping the Blood Hound in line. I am seeking full time and permanent employment with someone who will be patient and loyal to an old girl who enjoys spending most of her day in one spot. I have to be honest, I know I’m not what most people are looking for. I don’t see well, can’t hear hardly a thing and I have to pee quite frequently. I use a ramp to go down the steps to pee and I’ve been working with a chiropractor to improve my gait, but my references are still favorable. I’m so extraordinary that my foster mom doesn’t mind my special needs. I’m not on any medication and I love people, don’t mind other dogs and I get on well with cats. There has to be more people out there like my foster mom. If you have a space available and are patient and kind I would love to apply.

The cold hard truth is that CBHR is full and very low on funds and needs to raise $6000 and acquire four foster homes by Friday of this week. The only way we can continue to help bassets in imminent danger of euthanasia is by having foster space and finances to provide for their veterinary care. Currently, we have over 40 dogs in our care. We have made a commitment to give them a better life and will honor that commitment. We need to have funds to be able to care for them AND funds to continue to bring those in shelters awaiting our help.
CBHR was notified of a basset this evening that needs to be returned to us as our motto is, “once a CBHR basset, always a CBHR basset”. This little man has filled our last available foster home. Coupled with no foster space we also only have enough funds to support our 43 dogs for a very short time. Our monthly veterinary bills range from $6000-$7000. Yes, it’s a lot of money. In reality, we need to raise a good deal of money to continue to help our shelter bassets. Can you help us do that? Please do not make us say no to this week’s shelter bassets!
