BRAT's Final Rescue Report for 2010

I pleased to present the final BRAT Rescue Report for 2010.

During the year, our coordinators placed 260 basenjis in forever homes. That may just seem like a number, but when you look at the full list of the dogs placed you get some idea of how much work was involved.

This list below includes both the name of the basenji and the Coordinator responsible for all of the work involved in the placement.

We will soon be posting the complete list of 2010 fosters. Thank you to all fosters---BRAT wouldn't exist without your efforts. To learn more about fostering a basenji rescue, click here.

By far, our busiest coordinators were Debbi Johnson and Pam Hamilton. Debbi and Pam coordinated the placement of 36 of the Wimauma Field dogs in Florida. Many of you are familiar with that story but to read more about this remarkable rescue, click here.

Pam not only helped coordinate the placement of all of these dogs--she also fostered all 36 of the Wimauma dogs placed and continues to foster almost all of the Wimauma dogs still waiting for homes. And if that wasn't enough, Pam coordinated the placement of 13 other non-Wimauma dogs in Florida.

In addition to her coordination work, Debbi Johnson handled all of the Treasurer work for BRAT and served as both a Director and member of the Executive Committee.

We stand in awe of both Pam and Debbi. Thank you.

Other very busy coordinators include Jack Austin in Georgia, JR Key in Washington, DC, Liz Newton and Beth Schmidt in Illinois, Melissa Benda and Wendy Hodges in Texas, Roberta Kosek in New England, and Suzanne Sarlls-Hartwell in Michigan. In addition to these folks, dozens of volunteers helped place at least one dog. My most sincere thanks to all of you and to the many volunteers who perform "behind the scenes work" for BRAT.

2011 begins our 13th year of basenji rescue and it is starting out just as busy as 2010. We have more than one hundred basenji purebreds waiting for forever homes. To apply to adopt one of these dogs, click here. We always need more volunteers to help foster rescue dogs, coordinator placements, contact new applicants, and do administrative work. To become a BRAT volunteer, click here. And, of course, we couldn't sustain this organization without our wonderful donors. To make a tax deductible donation to BRAT, click here.

Thank you for your support of BRAT and basenji rescue! Since our founding in 1999, more than 3,500 basenjis have found forever homes due to your hard work and financial support!
