We've had many dogs come in with heartworms and the treatment is expensive. We're also short on foster homes and have had to board some dogs.
Please consider donating and fostering. DONATIONS ARE SO APPRECIATED! Thanks!
You may donate by using PayPal or if you prefer you may donate by mail. (Please note that donations are NOT tax deductible.)

Who we are........
Beagles and More Rescue is an all-volunteer group dedicated to assisting dogs, particularly beagles, in need. While we love all animals, beagles have taken ahold of our hearts and simply won't let go. Working with animal advocates throughout the area, we assist both shelters and private individuals in finding a new, loving home for their pets. Each of us do work full-time outside of the home and spend the majority of our free time helping pooches from far and wide! We'll try, with all of our might, to answer your e-mail inquiries in a timely fashion.
Foster homes needed
We are a foster-based rescue and are always in need of more foster homes. If you are interested in fostering or would like to learn more about fostering please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an application online at our website: http://www.beaglesandmore.net/. We will provide all veterinary care. We just ask that you provide the love, shelter, compassion and food!
Adopting a friend
Before adopting a beagle please research this wonderful breed. Beagles, like all other breeds, have their own unique qualities and needs. We're all fans of those tri-colored cuties here and work to rescue beagles, beagle-mixes and other dogs in-need with nowhere else to turn.
Please understand that our first priority is finding the best home for our foster dogs. Our decisions are based on what we feel will be the very best home for each beagle and your family. With many to choose from and partnering with numerous animal welfare groups in our community, we are dedicated to finding great homes for great pets!
Beagles are scent hounds, which means they are nose to the ground and off and running, so a fence is very important. If a beagle does not get the exercise and stimulation her or she both needs and deserves, then mischief tends to raise it's ornery head. We are not saying that we won't adopt to someone who does not have a fence, yet the circumstances have to be ideal for our little one's needs.
Adoption Process and Fees
If you see a Beagles 'n More pooch who looks like he/she would be a good fit in your family, please email us for an application or fill one out online at http://www.beaglesandmore.net/. We will be happy to begin the adoption process by checking veterinary references and performing a home visit to see if this is a great fit for both you and the dog!
Our adoption fees range from $150-$275, depending on the amount of veterinary costs incurred while in foster care. Unfortunately, many of the dogs we welcome into our program have lived a neglectful life, so we take them to fantastic vets to get them happy, healthy and ready for adoption into a loving family!
Adoption fees only partially cover the expense of caring for all of the dogs that are taken in, so donations are welcome and greatly appreciated. Some dogs require extensive time in foster care or lengthy medical treatment, running into the hundreds of dollars. Every cent of your donation goes directly to hands-on care of these dogs. Please e-mail us for more information on how you can help us to help them!
A Special Plea to help raise $1700 for Dori's vet bill!
Dori was rescued from a high kill shelter with little time to spare. She's a sweet girl that loves to play. Dori is a unique looking girl with her short legs and is full of life! We're guessing she's around a year old. Perhaps that helped land her in the emergency room late at night after getting into a bunch of raw hide chewies. Dori is doing great now but may need to get a job cleaning dishes to help with her doctor bill. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!!
You may donate to help with the cost of Dori's emergency room visit by using PayPal, the chip in page on our website: http://www.beaglesandmore.net/, or if you would prefer to donate by check please email us and we will send you the mailing address. (Please note that donations are NOT tax deductible.)
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog,"
or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog."
They don't understand the distance traveled,
the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog.
" Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."
Many hours have passed and my only company was " just a dog," but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog,"
and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it's "just a dog,"
then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."
"Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.
"Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of "just a dog" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
"Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man."
So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog." just smile, because they "just don't understand."
