An Important Message from our Fundraising Chairperson


To All Fauve Lovers,

The Basset Fauve de Bretagne Club of America will be offering auctions and raffles to help offset the cost of the shows we must put on to continue our quest to be AKC accepted. We will hold these auctions at the National Specialty Show in St Louis on 9/15–18 as well as online. The club is looking for donations to help with this cause. The money acquired will also be used for rescue and other club needs.

Here are the ways you can donate to the club:

  • Click on the “Donate” button at the bottom of every page on our website
  • Amazon registry (https://www.amazon.com/registries/gl/guest-view/2BDF5RJI0HO6P or go to Amazon.com, under “Your Lists” from the main menu, click on “Find a List or Registry.” Type out the club’s full name and you will find our name listed.)
  • Gift cards from Etsy (cards should be sent to Claire Stretch at cistretch@outlook.com)
  • Any other gifts, cash, or gift cards should be sent to Claire at the address below:
        2025 Wolf Creek Road
        Goreville, Illinois 62939

The club really appreciates everyone’s support in this endeavor. Any questions can be addressed to me at sakanter2@yahoo.com.
