It's all about the dogs
Guardian Angel Basset Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving Illinois, Indiana and the St. Louis, Mo. area
Welcome to our Bash & Waddle Navigation page which will direct you to the no charge registration, all of the forms, schedules of activities,
shopping, ordering pages and much more!  We hope you're all looking forward to the Basset Bash Roundup and the Wild West Waddle.  There are many
changes, so please check the schedules.  We don't want you to miss anything!  We want you to have loads of fun.  Just remember this is an annual fundraiser!  
Please set up your web page and get sponsors for your basset to walk (or ride) the 10 block Waddle route.  The homeless bassets rely on your help.

First of all, the BASSET RULE!  Bassets and Basset Mixes only!  We know many of you have non-bassets at home and have asked if you can bring them.  We
have this rule in place for the safety of the non-bassets.  The social bassets will be off leash on Saturday AND Sunday this year.  Intact bassets need to stay on
leash.  They have amazing noses and when a non-basset comes into the GABR Park, they know it!  They will bark and try to chase them.  It's no fun for the dog
or the owner.

This year there's no NASCAR Race in Joliet the same weekend so we have 3 Morris hotels who have blocked off rooms for a group rate.  Just check the Motel
page for details.  For those of you who prefer to park your RV or pitch your tent at the Park and don't need electricity, you just have to register with our Parking

In order for everyone to have fun, we need a lot of volunteers!  If you can only work an hour or two, that relieves another volunteer to eat, shop and watch the
activities.  Just go to our Volunteer page and choose a time to help.

Happy trails and see you soon!

Waddle Chairman
