Sponsorship Information

Angel with a Basset

Want to help a particular hound, but can't adopt or foster? Our BRAT's Angel program is a great way for you to help the hounds by providing financial support for their ongoing medical care!
What does the BRAT's Angels program entail?
The Angels provides financial support for the medical care of the rescue hound of his or her choosing.  We will provide updates to the Angel regarding the hound's progress so he or she can see the drastic improvements in the health of the pup that the donation helped make possible.  Unless otherwise  requested, each Angel will have his or her name posted on the hound's Web page indicating that he or she is assisting in providing care for the basset.

How much money should I send?
There is no minimum or maximum amount - every donation helps to save a hound.
Our basset babies are all-too-often suffering multiple medical problems when we pull them from the shelters.  Each hound generally requires several hundred dollars in medical treatment, especially if the basset has heartworm disease. We can spend anywhere from $300 per dog to upwards of $2,000 or more depending on their initial condition when entering our program. Every dollar helps. No amount is too small.

Can I be an Angel for a hound who already has an Angel?

Absolutely!  As the costs of caring for some of these hounds can reach $2,000 or more,
the more sponsors the better!

How do I sign up?
It's simple!  On each dog's Web page you will find a link underneath the hound's picture that reads "Sponsor This Pet."  Click the link and you will be taken to that hound's sponsorship page where you can enter a one-time or recurring donation. In the space provided to enter a note, be sure to mention the Angel Program. After entering your information, you will be transferred to our secure donation site, Paypal, where you may make safe online donations via credit/debit card or check. You don’t need to have a PayPal account. Simply click on the Credit Card option to make your donation.
Or if you prefer, you may mail a check or money order directly to our rescue
with a note indicating which hound you wish to sponsor.  As soon as your donation is received, we will update the hound's online profile to reflect his or her new Angel.
