In the last nine years, UFBH has rescued over 500 Basset Hounds in Utah and southern Idaho. We took in over 100 dogs in 2010, and have helped over 150 in 2011, so the demands increase constantly.
Thanks to donors like you, UFBH will be able to provide appropriate veterinary care and housing for more Bassets in need. Donations are tax deductible as UFBH is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) public charity and licensed by the state of Utah.
UFBH also accepts donations by mail for those donors who wish to send a check or money order. You may send donations to:
Utah Friends of Basset Hounds
1338 S Foothill Drive #172
Salt Lake City, UT 84108
Please make your checks payable to UFBH or Utah Friends of Basset Hounds.

The family of Basset Beauford T. Justice was the first to set up automatic monthly donations to Utah Friends of Basset Hounds.
Transportation and Home Checks
Often, UFBH needs help getting Basset Hounds from the shelters to the foster home, or from the foster home to vet appointments. Most folks involved in our cause are volunteers who have full time jobs. This makes transportation a challenge. Moreover, because most of our active members live along the Wasatch Front and our coverage area includes the entire state, we are always looking for people to help us with home checks in those areas that are farther away.
To volunteer as a driver or to help with home checks, email us for information about current needs.
Help Staff an Event
UFBH regularly participates in various events where we need people to help at booths. Sometimes it’s as simple as talking up Basset Hounds and sometimes it’s as complicated as gift wrapping. Keep an eye on our home page for upcoming events. Get in touch if you see a volunteer request where you can help us out!
