Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We adopt our dogs throughout New England. ALL of our dogs are based in MAINE. We have a kennel on site and also use local foster homes to house our pups.

About Our Rescue Group:

Tall Tails Beagle Rescue is a 501c3 non-profit, breed-specific Rescue that works to find homes for unwanted Beagles and Beagle mixes.

Beagles are a member of the scent hound group. They vary between 13 and 15 inches at the shoulder and usually weigh between 20 and 30 pounds. They possess a short coat and are easily groomed. Beagles often live to 15 years.

All of our rescue dogs have all been examined by a veterinarian, brought up to date on their shots, spayed or neutered.

Our Adoption Process:

Anyone interested in adopting one of our pups must fill out an Adoption Application. We require personal & veterinary references. Once approved the adopter must sign an Adoption Contract. One of the stipulations in the contract is that the Beagle will be kept as a house pet and must be returned to Tall Tails Beagle Rescue if the adopter can no longer keep the Beagle.

Our adoption fee is $200. If the dog is not old enough to be spayed/neutered (puppy) - there is also spay/neuter deposit & contract. The deposit is returned upon proof of spay/neuter.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
