Today just for the heck of it my husband and I went to both the Norfolk SPCA and the Norfolk Animal Care Center. Before walking in both my husband said "We're not coming out with any dogs." I replied "As long as there aren't any Bassets." When we went into the Norfolk Animal Care Center in the second pen was a Senior Basset Boy named "Sadsacks." I immediately started crying and wanted to take him, but my hubby talked me out of it. We can't afford the potential costs of a senior right now, and our 2 "youngins" would probably drive the poor boy crazy. I've already written BROOD, but if you're in the VA area and interested in a rescueing (sp?) a houndie boy here's the contact info: 757-441-5505, [email protected], 5585 Sabre Road Norfolk, VA 23502. I don't have a link for him unfortunately. The shelter just got him on Wednesday/Thursday so he's not up on Petfinder yet. I really hope someone (or BROOD) gets him, it absolutely BROKE my heart walking out of there w/o him.
