About Our Rescue Group...
Please visit our website before emailing... most everything about the adoption process is answered!
We hope this material will help you decide if a Beagles & Buddies canine companion should be in your future. If you're considering a "rescued companion", you will need to know that all dogs that enter our rescue are screened before they are available for adoption. They are checked for temperament problems, given all required vaccines, spayed or neutered and are socialized. A donation is requested as well as a signed adoption contract.
Donations range from $150 - $750 depending on the age and breed. We support our non-profit and no-kill sanctuary from funds generated by these donations, therefore, puppy and pure-bred donations, which are higher, help keep the older, less adoptable dogs from harms way. Our older dogs often require dental care, blood work and other attention. We also have a great track record at finding our older canine companions great homes, as well!
We are looking for serious people and families who will be responsible canine companion adopters; which means making the dog part of your family, providing inside/outside homes, quality food, veterinary care, attending training classes and making a commitment to the dog for the rest of its' life, through good times and bad.
If you fit this description, we look forward to helping you find a canine companion suitable for your family - because that's what we do best!
ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION:
Beagles & Buddies is a no-kill sanctuary for unwanted or abandoned dogs, established in 1992 as the official breed rescue for Beagles and other hound dogs.
We specialize in purebred and mixed Beagles, but we also rescue Basset, Blue and Red Tick, Plott, Black and Tans, Tree Walker Coon Hounds, Dachshunds, and (mostly small) dogs of other breeds.
The kennel is a member of H.A.R.T. a nonprofit animal welfare and social service agency serving Southern California.
Beagles & Buddies volunteers work tirelessly to find secure, happy new homes for as many of the resident dogs as possible.

3. Come visit in person, bringing your entire family, other dogs, extended family, friends -- not mandatory in all instances, but recommended.
4. Plan to spend at least one hour here at our facility(maybe as much as 2-3 hrs). We'll try to do our best to help you as quickly and efficiently as possible. Sometimes it is pretty busy and we're shorthanded and sometimes it just takes awhile. You may often come in with ideas of what dog you want to meet; we may be able to recommend other dogs that would be good matches for you.
