Luna is an adorable "lemon"-colored beagle (tan and white), with soft, silky beagle ears! She was turned in to our organization because her owners found they did not have enough time to take care of a beagle. Luna is 3 years old, is current on all of her vetting, is housebroken and doggie-door trained. She gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home, loves to run, wrestle and play with the beagle friends, and loves attention from her human friends as well, so she would be fine as an "only" dog if given plenty of exercise and attention. She enjoys the company of children and would be fine with older children.
Luna is a really a character! She will make you laugh and she will bring sparkle into your life! Like most beagles, she'd LOVE to go to a home that enjoys a nice walk around the neighborhood so she won't get bored with her own surroundings. After all, a walk around the block is an opportunity to sniff out all the possibilities! Luna is a well-rounded gal and she likes the "couch-potato" mode, too!
To meet Luna or any of the other HBHR beagles, please visit our website and read the into on how to adopt: Houston Beagle Rescue
Many of the adoptable beagles will be at Paws Pet Resort at 3425 Couch St., Houston, 77018 on the 2nd Sunday of each month, or email us for more information!

Who We Are
We are a small group of friends who are committed to rescuing needy Beagles and occasionally other Hounds from shelters, abandonment, neglect, and other dangerous situations. We attempt to find loving homes for these dogs at risk. We have no shelter facility so the dogs are fostered in private homes, mostly in the Houston area. We are a non-profit corporation in the state of Texas.
How To Help
We are always looking for great foster homes. Also, we would love for you to volunteer to help with some of the driving (we do a lot of driving, picking dogs up from shelters, shuttling to vets, and sometimes even taking dogs to their new homes.) We also appreciate donations of any size, which helps us to rescue more needy dogs! See our Paypal link for sending monetary donations or email us for instructions on mailing a check.
We are a totally volunteer-run organization. There are always more dogs than there are volunteers and any help is appreciated to get more of these dogs out of the shelters and into their forever homes.
Adopting a friend
We require an adoption fee for adopting our rescued dogs. The fee may vary according to a particular dog, so please read the info listed below each dog's individual write-up for more info on adoption fees. (More is always welcomed and appreciated as we often incur very steep vet bills on the special needs and heartworm-positive dogs.) Our fee includes the spay/neuter, the vaccines, flea and heartworm preventative/treatment, any other healthcare needed to prepare the dogs for adoption, plus a new leash, collar, rescue ID tag, and some training!
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, THE FIRST STEP IN OUR ADOPTION PROCESS is to complete our adoption questionnaire here, please: Adoption Questionnaire! This is the way to get the adoption process started. If you would prefer to apply via email or FAX, please contact us for instructions on using that method.
We have been getting many, many inquiries on all our dogs, which is great news. Unfortunately, it may take us a few days sometimes to respond. Priority responses will be given to applications received online. Our volunteers must go to work during the day and phone inquiries are more difficult to respond to, in a timely manner! Thanks!
Our adoption fee does not begin to cover the expenses incurred on most of the dogs. HBHR volunteers willingly spend money out of their own pockets to help these needy dogs. Most of the dogs have been sorely neglected in their past and require some vet care to prepare them for adoption.
We want to adopt our dogs to "indoor" home situations. The dogs are fostered in indoor homes where we work on crate-training and housebreaking, and they will be happiest in an adoptive home of the same type. We do not have a "shelter." The adopters must agree to continue to provide responsible vet care including heartworm preventative medication, current vaccines and any other care which will assure the dogs of continuing good health. All dogs MUST be spayed or neutered prior to adoption, so we do not post the new ones on the list until all vetting has been completed.
Since we usually know very little about the backgrounds of these dogs, we cannot be held responsible for any problems which might occur after adoption. We will disclose anything which we have encountered while they have been in our care.
As always, we thank you for your interest in adopting one of the many wonderful dogs in our program. Check out our website for more information and to find out how you can meet the beagles in person!
