About Our Rescue Group:GABR rescues basset hounds from Illinois, Indiana, and Eastern Missouri that find themselves in bad situations. Once the basset is in our possession, we provide needed vet care. Then the basset goes to one of our wonderful foster homes. After the foster home evaluates the dog, our adoption coordinators help the basset find a good home.
GABR also helps other various breed rescues, cat rescues and humane societies, as well as many groups outside the animal organizations.
Come Meet our Pets:Our center of activity is in Dwight, IL, where we hold the yearly Illinois Bash and Waddle in September. This is a two day event consisting of an off-leash basset hound picnic in a fenced in area followed by a basset hound parade with hundreds of basset hounds. We also have a yearly auction in April.
We hold adoption events throughout the year in the three states that we serve in addition to participating in numerous canine community and basset hound social events.
