Scrappy's Story...
Rescue is all about second chances. Sweet Scrappy the Beagle came into our rescue quite unexpectedly. We were down at Chicago Animal Care & Control and when leaving, came upon a gentleman and his dog in the parking lot. The man was visibly upset, and of course we had to stop to talk to him. Turns out there were some very unfortunate circumstances and he was going to have to give up Scrappy. Those of us who love our dogs can't begin to imagine the unimaginable thought of giving up our dog, but sometimes life deals you a bad hand. This gentleman tried many avenues to find a new home for Scrappy with no luck. It was very clear that his heart was breaking. Fate put us together that day and we knew couldn't stand by and see this sweet little senior to be brought into the shelter as an owner surrender, knowing that it was unlikely that he would make it out alive.

We put a plan together and got Scrappy to his foster home and allowed this gentleman who loved him dearly to be able to take a deep breath and know that his little boy would have a second chance at love.

Well, guess what? We have fallen in love with this wonderful dog! You would never know that he is 13 years young. He passed his medical exam with flying colors, his heart, kidneys, liver functioning just as they should be. He is up-to-date on his shots, neutered, heartworm negative and on preventative. He will be microchipped so that everyone will always know where his home is.

He gets along with kids and other dogs and is quite "Beagley", with the joie de vivre that Beagles are known for.

He's peppy and fun, but equally happy to curl up and take a snooze. We think he'd pretty much fit into any family, be great for a single person or even terrific for an older individual looking for a cuddly confidant.

Scrappy is ready to start his new life…might he start it with you?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scrappy, a Palos Hills Beagle dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Beagle for sale in Palos Hills, or seeking a Beagle dog from a breeder in Palos Hills.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Palos Hills already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Palos Hills breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Beagle breeders who help with Beagle rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Palos Hills paves the way for another one to be saved.
