"Can we crash on your couch for awhile?"
    A Poem to My Foster Dog
    I am the bridge
    Between what was and what can be.
    I am the pathway to a new life.
    I am made of mush,
    Because my heart melted when I saw you, matted and sore,
    limping, depressed, lonely, unwanted, afraid to love.
    For one little time you are mine.
    I will feed you with my own hand.
    I will love you with my whole heart.
    I will make you whole.
    I am made of steel.
    Because when the time comes,
    When you are well, and sleek
    When your eyes shine
    And your tail wags with joy
    Then comes the hard part.
    I will let you go - not without a tear,
    But without a regret.
    For you are safe forever -
    A new dog needs me now.

If it meant saving the life of a basset hound, could you
make room in your heart to volunteer as a foster home?

Unfortunately, this is the situation all too often.  Basset
hounds are abandoned or found wandering the streets
every week - many of them ending up in "kill shelters".  
This means that if not adopted within sometimes only a
few days, the basset hound will be euthanized.

Basset Buddies Rescue of Texas is devoted to protecting
the lives of these hounds.  This is accomplished by
pulling these loving creatures from the "kill shelters" and
giving them a safe temporary home until they can be
adopted by the loving "forever family" they deserve.

That's where you come in!  
We are in desperate need of
foster homes for these hounds.
 The sad truth is, we cannot
remove basset hounds from shelters if there are no foster
homes to care for them.

Please don't wait for "the other guy" to do it.  We all have
a role to play in rescue.  If you are at all able, please
volunteer to be a foster home today!
