Mission: Prevention of cruelty to animals in general and rescue, care and adoption of basset hounds specifically.
Programs: Basset rescue network, inc. At daphneyland has a simple mission: to help basset hounds in need. We focus on the rescue of pure-bred basset hounds and some mixes, which may end up in animal shelters, humane societies, are victims of abuse/neglect or unwanted and/or simply misunderstood by their owners. A network of volunteers from all walks of life gathers information on a daily basis about hounds in need through e-mail forums, shelter postings, social media venues and phone calls. The homeless basset hounds are then rescued from shelters by the volunteers who transport them to our rehabilitation center there they are cared for and socialized. Care includes medical and surgical care by veterinarians, nutritional rehabilitation and stabilization, grooming, training, behavioral modification and socialization, as well as any other needsa that become evident. Our family crisis program prvides hounds displaced due to foreclosures, family emergencies or other unforeseen crisis, a safe haven for a 90-day period in order to allow the family a chance to reunite. Our military crisis program has allowed those who are serving our country to have their basset hounds cared for while deployed overseas. We have hands-on educational programs for youth and adults on pet guardianship and responsibilities, integrating companion animals to a family, and behavioral modification. We continue to be actively involved in community organizations, efforts and events. We work with girl scouts, brownies, boy scouts and several other youth organizations to encourage volunteerism amongst youth. We also are involved in the bigsunday. Org efforts to encourage volunteerism in the southern california area. Church groups and temple groups are also very active in our volunteer programs. Several inner city youth rehabilitation programs also have working programs here with us, which provides a community outreach and networking. 2014 found our organization extending many of our existing programs through media opportunities that arose. Our youth education program was able to produce a social media video and has networked with a world wide youth education program in conjunction with the singapore spca. The focus group is todays youth, using the rewrite of patti pages do you see that doggie in the shelter. This program is launching in japan, and has aspirations for global education of youth through picture books, video and the educational system. Our video participation is online at: https://www.

V=jflrccmpxc4in november of 2014, we were given the opportunity to be featured on the televised foxs cause for paws which broadcast on fox thanksgiving night to a record breaking audience. Participating with 35 homeless basset hounds from daphneyland, we brought national focus on the need for adoptions across the country. Networking partners reported a 300% increase in adoption applications and inquiries during the month of december, typically the hardest month to adopt out a dog. The show has gone on to win awards and has been picked up by fox network to be an annual event. Our chapter in arizona was able to achieve independent status and reclaim their activities and thus we have closed our arizona chapter who is running independent of basset rescue network and is highly active. We continue to network with them and in july we oversaw a sad family crisis situation wherein a family with severe medical crisis required the surrender of their 14 dogs. Coordinating locally in arizona, we performed the intake in extreme conditions, sought local veterinarian emergency treatments. And once able to transport took ownership of these hounds we called the azbhr specials. Despite continued decline in donations and grants, we were able to continue to operate at maximum capacity throughout 2014 through additional fundraisers. Our totals for 2014 on hounds assisted are as follows:daily maximum of 66 hounds (plus 10 foster homes) = 22,400 canine care annually. 2014 stats: 282 adoptions, 23 end of life sanctuary program, 96 family crisis program cases, reunification of 42 canines, 53 additional canines were placed through networking partners. Thus our programs exited 506 canines throughout the year.
Since 2006, I have been an active volunteer, donor, foster and adoptive home with this amazing rehabilitation center. Dogs with physical and/or behavioral challenges are consistently worked with and adopted into loving forever homes. Basset Rescue Network provides a wonderful service to not only their local community, but to all rescue groups around the globe who look to them as an example of how a successful, well run rescue operates on a daily basis. An A+ organization!
Basset Rescue Network, Inc. at Daphneyland has been serving the community for more than ten years. Having the only kennel facility for basset hounds, it is uniquely qualified for socialization and rehabilitation. A leader in education and youth programs, Basset Rescue Network affects the lives of humans and hounds alike. This is a worthwhile organization with a positive impact that extends far beyond the care and adoption of basset hounds
Close to 80% of all donated money is used for personal use, bills, as well as for paid employees, who take care of the dogs and kennel and one of them is also paid to clean the house as well. The animals see very little of the donations. Most fundraising on different sites state a specific use for the money ie: a dog needs surgery (which rarely the dog gets as it heals on its own)or cancer dogs need special medicine, but the money is used instead used for over due electric or gas bills for the kennel and personal residence, vacation trips. It is printed that they are an all a volunteer organization, but the truth is they have several paid employees. A sole person who lives on the property rent free is the President of the rescue as well as President of the boarding facility Daphneyland LLC, the rescue pays rent to the boarding facility. Who then pays the owner of the property who is the father of the President of both organizations, and he lives their free as well. The non profit rescue also pays him to make repairs on the property he owns and they also buy all of the supplies needed to make repairs to the property. What a scam. They live there for free the rescue pays for everything. I have seen posts of dogs being sick and then passing away during the evening or over night and none were immediately taken to a vet for help, instead it was posted that we gave them this pill and this injection and watched them,,,,, What about a Vet, to what what was really wrong.
