BROOD Fundraisers

For BROOD, fundraising is our lifeline -- it allows us to save as many bassets as we do. In 2014 we rescued 104 dogs and adopted 108. This compares to 2013 where 162 were rescued and 143 adopted. As of December 31, 2014 we have rescued 2700 basset hounds since BROOD was founded! So whether you want to make a cash donation, create a memorial, or make a purchase through one of our affiliates, we ask that you please support one or more of BROOD's current fundraising activities.

Make a Donation If you want to make a cash donation, you can always contribute to BROOD. You can pay with Check, Credit Card or PayPal. And because we're recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization, your gift is tax deductible!

Monthly Giving Making a monthly donation through PayPal is an efficient and easy way to support BROOD on a regular basis. You won't have to mail a check and it's easy to budget, too. It's simple to set up and you choose the monthly amount to donate, plus it can be started and stopped at any time. Go to our Donations page to set this up today!

Virtual Fostering Kennel fees are a huge part of our annual expenses. If you can't foster, consider sponsoring a dog's kennel fees of $10 a day. It's a tax deductible contribution too!

Bequests You can make a difference in the lives of homeless hounds by including BROOD in your will. A bequest of any amount goes a long way. Consult your attorney or financial advisor to ensure that your bequest is properly set up. BROOD's legal name is Basset Rescue of Old Dominion, Inc. and our tax identification number is 54-1896211.

In Honor Of and Wedding Gifts A donation in honor of a friend or family member will support BROOD's rescue work and is a wonderful way to celebrate the special people, animals and events in your life. To learn more, click here.
