Scooby IV's Story...
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.
Poor Scooby...we don't know much of anything about his life before TBBR, but we know it was lacking in proper care.
Scooby's rescue plea listed many medical maladies including flea dermatitis (hair loss), an old embedded collar scar, multiple lumps and bumps, ear infections, and an ear hematoma that needed to be drained. He also needed to be neutered and is heartworm positive. Goodness. But he is on his way to healing now under the wonderful care of our rescue.
Scooby IV isn't exactly a beagle, either. We are just calling him a hound. And while our mission is absolutely beagles and beagle mixes, sometimes we step in where others will not, and Scooby is one of those cases.
He has shown himself to walk nicely on a leash, is quiet in his crate, and gets along with the other dogs in the house. He met the resident kitty through the baby gate, and neither one of them seemed to care less.
In his first weekend in a home in some time, Scooby can be found casually exploring his house and yard but also just soaking up some sunshine while he takes a nap.
Scooby is a special dog that will need a special home that understands his needs and pace. We would like to get his health further improved before sending him on, but don't let that stop you from meeting him or putting in your application.
On behalf of Scooby, we would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers and supporters who help make stories like his possible.

Our Adoption Process...
Steps to adopt a beagle from Tampa Bay Beagle Rescue:
Read about the beagle breed to be sure this dog matches your lifestyle and personality. While we think beagles are terrific dogs, we know that no one breed is perfect for every single family. Many people adopt or purchase beagles because they are small and friendly without ever finding out more about the breed. We encourage anyone who is considering adding a beagle to their family to learn all they can about these stubborn, playful hounds! Submit an on-line application. Just fill out the application on-line and we will automatically be notified. If you need to, you can save your application and finish it later. Choose to receive information from us. In your settings, you have the option to receive emails and regular mail from us. Click these options to receive updates about dogs available for adoption and upcoming events such as adoption days, special activities and fundraising events. Approval of the application is based on phone interviews and a reference & Vet check. It usually takes us 7-10 days to approve an application, but when we are very busy, it can take a little longer. Thanks for your patience! Visit with the beagles! After you are approved, you can visit with the dogs at adoption events, usually scheduled once or twice a month. Adoption events are open to the public, but only preapproved applicants will be able to adopt the same day. (We recommend submitting the application at least 10 days in advance to ensure it is approved in time.)
