"We're the only Basset rescue in Louisiana, so we take in Bassets and also other breeds, Beagles, mixed hounds, from shelters and also from owner give-ups. And we bring them into rescue, we have all vetting done, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, heartworm treatment (which is where most of our money goes). And then once the dogs are completely vetted, we then adopt them out to homes in the Louisiana area, and other places in the United States, too.

"Our win benefits us because it allows us to take in more dogs. So with the funds that we are receiving, we're able to spend money on, gives us money to spend on vetting and boarding. And then that allows us to then, once those dogs are vetted and adopted out, to then take in more dogs. It's just helping the community with the overpopulation problem. Looziana Basset Rescue has a very active Facebook page, so we started with that, but then with all social media, it fans out from there. So it ended up with me posting on probably, originally fifteen Basset rescue Facebook pages all over the United States, and then also animal rescues all over the country, and some in Europe, too. But it was all via Facebook. We had some Instagram and some Twitter, but mainly Facebook. Thank you, Gulf Coast Bank! You've made a huge difference in the community, and thank you for giving us this opportunity." -- from Looziana Basset Rescue, Inc.
