Thank You for visiting our beagles for adoption! A picture may speak a thousand words and a sad beagle tale might pull at your heartstrings but...how do you know which beagle is the RIGHT beagle for YOU? By submitting an Adoption Application, of course! By filling out an application, we learn more about you and what beagle would suit you best! Keep in mind, too, that the beagles posted here are those lucky enough to land foster families with us. We hear about other beagles in need practically on a daily basis. Sadly, there are never enough foster homes to take them all in. So, even if you're not sure if you see the Beagle of Your Dreams posted on our site today, don't let it stop you from sending us your application! Perhaps, fostering a beagle in need interests you. If so, we welcome your completed Foster Application as much as we do receiving adoption inquiries! Whether you're looking to adopt, foster or simply learn more about our special work on behalf of homeless howlers, give us a HOWL today! We're always wagging our tails in anticipation of your heartfelt messages!!!

All About Rudy...
 
 As of Dec 21, 2009:
It seems I never got around to telling Rudy's story. Rudy had heart disease and we knew eventually, it would get worse. So Rudy went to live up country with a very special foster parent of ours. Catherine of Sheba's Haven runs a very extraordinary rescue. She helps dogs with terminal illness fulfill their bucket lists! And lucky for us, Catherine has a weakness for beagles. She always seems to find room for at least one BOB beagle like Rudy.
Rudy came to us from the Quinte Humane Society just after Christmas last year. He was a stray so he needed a name. Given the time of year, they named him after the most famous reindeer of all! But the kind staff at Quinte had a bad feeling Rudy wasn't in the best health. They were right. He was an older boy too and there were the telltale signs of heart trouble. But Rudy had such a charm about him. He also had a favourite toy. His stuffed rabbit. When we said we could take him, they insisted on packing his bunny. We weren't expecting his bunny to be 10 times bigger than him!
This morning, I received an email from his earth Angel Catherine. Rudy's health had deteriorated in the last few weeks. When I saw that message, I knew it wasn't going to be good news. At least not for us. But for Rudy...he's spending Christmas in heaven. And like I wrote back to Catherine, he knew heaven on earth over this last year thanks to her. There is no better gift than love.
There's an extra twinkle in the sky now. Safe journey home, Rudolph.

Rudy is what we're really all about.
 
On Saturday, after our incredible post-howliday meetup at Pawsway, we welcomed into our family a little beagle boy named Rudy. We'll be telling you his tale of woe shortly. For now, we just want to say thank you for making it possible for us to take Rudy. On Saturday, our BYOB members generously gave to the cause to the tune of $500. It practically paid for Mortimer's vet bill. And that meant, there was money left in our BOB account to do everything we can for Rudy. Beagle after beagle, you help us save lives. There are no words good enough to explain what that means to us
