Time for Giving Thanks

The holidays remind me of all we have to be thankful for. Like so many curly tails across the country, our basenjis make their humans’ lives better, happier, and more joy-filled. They make our tiny corner of the world an infinitely better place to be.  When we count our blessings, is there any wonder who’s at the top of the list?

At an auction at the BRAT convention last June we were the happy recipients of a to-be-painted portrait of our basenji children. This basenji painting was at auction courtesy of the artist, Susan Bloom, who generously donated this painting to raise funds for BRAT.  She collected a lot of photos of our Munchkins and then sent us this lovely painting.
We adopted Ivan and Dasa from BRAT, and we are so appreciative of all the effort that made this possible. People contribute in a variety of ways, and this help and service links BRAT volunteers across the country in a safety net for rescue basenjis. Thank you to all the generous people who support BRAT both financially and with selfless service to make sure BRAT can help basenjis in need.

Thank you to everyone who makes BRAT possible, to everyone who evaluates, fosters, and transports, to all the people who give little curly-tailed miracles a second chance at loving  forever homes. Thank you to all the people who make it possible for rescue basenjis to fill homes with light and joy, the way the Munchkins do at our home.

Thank you to everyone who contributes time, talent, and financial support so every basenji has the opportunity to make someone as happy as Ivan and Dasa make us.
