Compassionate Placement Senior Bassets

March 17th, 2009, 02:16 PM
I've received a call to rescue 2 senior bassets.. they are 9 & 6.. bonded pair of boys.. Sadly the family has been torn apart .. The Dad a Batshaw Social Workers wife suffered a stroke giving birth 3 years back and still is incapacitated totally needing 24/7 care unable to even speak.. The dogs need more than the Dad can give at this time.. its breaking his heart to let them go but he had to sell the house to catch up on the ever mounting bills associated with this tragedy.. So here I am scrambling to find someone to either foster or adopt these boys.. who are healthy by the way..

Any help appreciated.. as the family in Ontario backed out sadly
