If you don't own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life - Roger Caras
Virtual Adoption
Virtual Adoption - it's not a physical or actual act of adopting, but rather a simulated 'Adoption' of a particular dog's needs, taking place over the internet.
Did you know, with a pledge of $20.00 per month, you can help Suncoast Basset Rescue care for a basset who has known years of misunderstanding, neglect or abuse, or perhaps one who was well loved but could no longer be cared for by a previous owner due to life changes. We encourage you to share the joy of supporting a basset in need with your friends, co-workers, school or community group through Virtual Adoption.
Each "Virtual Adopter" that pledges $100 or more per year in financial support will receive your name listed on the Virtual Adoption page on website.
