Bentley was bitten by a rattlesnake while sniffing around in the back yard of his foster home. He's okay today thanks to the quick action his foster mom took and the great care at Cottonwood Animal Hospital.


Rattlesnakes are a problem in the valley. This happened near 3900 South 500 East.


If you can help with Bentley's veterinary expenses, please donate! We appreciate every dollar. Thank you!




Bassets de Mayo

We haven't forgotten you all!!

Finally found a secure yard for our hounds to be off leash so they can enjoy the party, too.


You are invited to our Annual Volunteer Celebration...

where we'll celebrate YOU...

Our Donors, Adopters, Foster Families and

all our Volunteers and UFBH Alumni.


This year will be a bit different...not a Bassets de Mayo theme, as it's going to be held in July. We won't have room to do our Basset Relay this year and and it may be be a bit warmer than usual.  We'll be serving "make your own" deli sandwiches and homemade salads and desserts. The yummy food, great company and the company  of our hounds will all be the same!!


Please stop by with your hounds; have a bite to eat and visit.

We'd love to see you!


And it shall be called...


"Bassets de Julio"

Sunday, July 17th, 11:30 to 2:00

Call or text Peg for more info and to RSVP.


(This event is NOT open to the public.)


Since our beginning in 2002, Utah Friends of Basset Hounds has taken in nearly 900 hounds.  At any given time, we care for 75-85 hounds. Nearly 40 hounds are ten years and older, 16 are seven to nine years of age. Then, there's all the youngsters!  We're not always "up to date" with information and pictures on this site (we're still trying to get a new website) and for this we apologize.  Be sure and friend us on Facebook to keep up with us!  And, please contact us with any questions you may have.
