Donate to Help the Hounds
Arizona Basset Hound Rescue would not exist without the donations of so many great supporters. Our dog-related expenses average $10,000 to $12,000 a month. Fundraisers and adoption fees do not cover it all, so monetary donations, becoming an Angel to a hound in need, planned giving and shopping to help the hounds are just a few of the ways you can help.

Arizona Basset Hound Rescue offers direct payment (automated giving), which is the electronic transfer of funds from your checking or savings
account to the company to which you authorize a payment, usually used for recurring bill payments and available as an easy way to contribute to the hounds of Arizona on a regular basis. Many of you probably have your mortgage or utility payments already being debited from your checking account, so why not have your contribution to Arizona Basset Hound Rescue debited each month?
You can donate on a monthly basis for the general fund or become an Angel to a hound in need! The biggest benefit to you, of course, is helping to save the hounds! Sign up to contribute $20 a month and you’ll donate $240 a year (shots, microchip, leash & collar, exam and part of spay/neuter costs) or $40 a month and you’ll donate $480 a year (spay or neuter, shots, microchip and more for one dog).

Some options include bequests through your will, charitable gift annuities, life insurance gifts and retirement plans. They can provide you with tax benefits while they help the animals.
