Bucks for Babe was started as a way to honor Crisco’s beloved dog Babe and support him after she passed away unexpectedly last June. With the help of SPIRE Credit Union, Secondhand Hounds, and of course KS95’s wonderful listeners, we were able to turn this terrible loss into a tremendous positive that helped save thousands of pets in the last year. 


We are so incredibly grateful for all the listeners who were touched by Crisco’s love for Babe and donated in Babe’s memory a year ago! Last year we laughed, we cried, and ultimately, WE RAISED 94.5 THOUSAND DOLLARS for the Bucks for Babe fund! And that money has meant Secondhand Hounds was able to say yes to saving rescue dogs just like Babe. Thanks to Babe, so many dogs and cats were transported from shelters into loving homes and families... and it's time to do it again!

This year, we want to continue saying yes to thousands of animals in memory of Babe and beloved rescue pets just like her. We’re raising money in memory of her and all of our amazing pets. Join us in supporting the Bucks for Babe fund again this year and say yes to saving a pet's life in honor of your pet!

On June 17th and 18th, our rescue volunteers are heading to all over the country to pick up dozens of dogs in need. Let's honor Babe by rescuing as many as possible! You can help by donating below- no amount is too small. Every dollar will go towards saying yes and saving lives this weekend and for the year to come!

With your help, the legacy of Babe and pets just like her will live on.
