Back in 2002, ABC Basset Hound Rescue was looking for someone to run a small online store to help raise money to pay for ongoing vet bills for the bassets in the rescue's care. I offered to do it as my parents own a gift shop and have retail experience. My husband and I had just adopted our first basset, Doc, and we were looking for a way to give back and help future bassets. I was given a budget of $500 to buy products for the new store. The store started with a bumper sticker, a shirt and a drool towel.
Today, The Slobber Shoppe has over 350 products, many exclusive to us! We have shipped over 15,000 orders worldwide since we started!
The store is run exclusively by my husband, Don, and myself. We are both volunteers; we do not take a salary, so all the profits go right back to ABC and helping the basset hounds.
This store is run daily in memory of our first 2 store managers...Doc and Dudley.
Today, the store is run by the third generation of Gordon bassets, Diesel, Dazzle & Flash.
Thank you for shopping and helping the homeless basset hounds! Shelly Gordon
