Beagle and Dachshund Rescue Groups:

We don't have to support puppy mills by buying from pet stores or unscrupulous breeders. Every breed has a rescue group. Please show an unwanted dog that life can be good again. Please show your love by adopting from Rescue groups.

Beagle Rescue Groups:

BEAGLE FREEDOM PROJECT - This group does wonders. They work directly with laboratories, negotiating to find homes for their beagles (instead of euthanizing them) once finished with testing. While I would love to see the end of animal testing, I applaud the way Shannon Keith and staff work diplomatically with labs.

Rescue Resources, Safety Guides and General Information

Purebred Adoption Bulletin Board - located on this site, the list allows you to post information about a purebred beagle in need of adoption. It is one of the most popular pages on the site and has help placed many beagles.

Beagle-Mix Adoption Bulletin Board - also on this site is a list for the adoption of mixed-breed beagles (as opposed to purebreds). The dogs on this list resemble beagles more than any other breed. Mixed-breed beagles can be an excellent choice of dog for people desiring the size and general personality, but who are looking for a “toned-down” version of the breed.
