We have available for adoption 10 Adult Beagles:  Twiggy, Burkley, Lilly, Bertha, Jack, Cooper, Saweetie, Doja, Sandy and Tum Tum

4 Beagle Puppies:  Michelle, Jael, Gover, Doc

These heroic beagles are ready to leave a life of service and sacrifice. While they are extremely human social, because of their background they may need extra training to adjust to a home environment. Adopters will be opening their heart to these dogs, understanding that they may require additional health care throughout their lives, and may potentially have a shortened life expectancy.

They are both neutered males, current on vaccines, micro-chipped. 

You can come and visit them during our Adoption hours:  Monday – Friday 11am – 7pm and Saturdays 11am – 4pm!
