BEAGLE OF THE MONTH!
Our First Rescued Beagle of the Year --- Bashful!!!
The BOB FamilySometimes, it can be quiet on the Beagle Rescue front...we tended to our current beagles in January and February
with no new homeless howlers knocking at our door...until we heard about Bash (aka Bashful) from our old friends at Clarington
Pound. It was well over a decade ago we first visited this shelter when the staff asked for our help with an old hound we
named Elliot! Poor boy had likely been a hunting dog that had taken to eating rocks. His teeth were so badly damaged, they
all had to be removed. But ultimately, Elliot was a happy boy sharing a condo with his perma-foster-daddy. Fast forward over
10 years later and we're back to take on another possible hunting dog that didn't make the grade. But this time, our boy is
just a youngster! You can learn more about Bashful by visiting his Bio under "Beagles for Adoption". In the meantime,
we just thought it would be nice to not only feature Bashful as our Beagle of the Month, but pay tribute to the lovely staff
at this shelter. They knew in their hearts that Bash needed specialized care to help him gain confidence and be the beagle
he's meant to be. Without hesitation, they called us. The sweetest thing about them besides going above and beyond for the
animals in their care? They remembered Elliot!
Year 2017 was supposed to go down in history as The Year of Major Medical
Emergencies for this little beagle repair shop! But 2018 was a way tougher year! We incurred well over $60,000 in veterinary
costs. In 2017, we were under $50,000 in total. But that's why you support us. We want to be here for the beagles that need
us the most. We've been hit hard due to the costly medical care needed for our arrivals in 2018 and funding has been stretched
to the limit. But you stepped up during our Christmas campaign and we're slowly recovering! Its times like this that make
us especially grateful for YOU! Your ongoing support makes it possible for us to keep from closing our doors while we build
back up that funding in order to reach out to more beagles requiring expensive, live-saving surgeries. The more money we raise
in tough times like this, the quicker we're back on our feet and the more beagles we can save. It's that simple and that's
why it's never too late to lend your support. We're asked to come to the rescue of abandoned beagles practically
on a daily basis. Please help us continue to reach out to beagles throughout 2019 and beyond. You can make a gift to
our beagles for yourself or in honour of a loved one for a special occasion! We'll send them a card on your
behalf so they know the impact you've made in their name. You'll be making twice the difference for that special
someone AND for a rescued beagle!
