About Our Rescue Group:

Atlanta Beagle Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit Georgia corporation. We are a small group of dedicated beagle lovers doing our best to match fabulous dogs with fabulous homes. We like to think of ourselves as more of a match-making service than a rescue, because we like people too! We all have day jobs so this is a part-time labor of love. We never take in more dogs than we can handle so we are never in rescue "crisis" mode.

Our Adoption Process:

Please fill out our online adoption form (http://www.atlantabeaglerescue.org/adoptionform.php) if you are even remotely interested in a dog. We work full-time jobs that are not beagle rescue so our priority in responding to emails goes to completed applications. Note: there are several required fields on the form and if they are not filled in you may get an error on submittal.

Our non-refundable adoption fee is $200. All dogs are spayed/neutered, dewormed, current on all vaccines, heartworm negative, have their teeth cleaned if they need it, and microchipped. We frequently spend the time and money to run bloodwork to check for thyroid issues if our vet feels it is warranted. All senior dogs (generally over 8-10 years) get a full senior blood panel work up as standard procedure. We generally foster all dogs for at least two weeks as well to make a solid assessment of behavior, personality and general health. We want our new beagle owners to have a dog that is ready to go "out of the box".

Our policy is "first approved, first adopted". Once you are approved we will set up a time for you to meet the dog. We do this to minimize stress on the dogs, and us. We all have full-time jobs and want to meet with people who are serious about adopting from us, not a "casual looker".

We will have some regular adoption events after the first of the year and will post them on our main website and also send out reminders in our email newsletter (http://news.atlantabeaglerescue.org).

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
