Nittany Beagle Rescue

West Decatur, PA

Our Mission

Nittany Beagle Rescue is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the lives of beagles, beagle mixes, & hounds in central Pennsylvania. We accept dogs from shelters and from owners who can no longer keep them, and we work to find them loving, permanent homes.

Adoption Policy

Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue dog & Nittany Beagle Rescue!

We are a foster-home based rescue. We hold showings on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month at Lyons Kennels in Bellefonte, PA from 11am - 1pm. You can meet some of our dogs then! Please email or send a PM on our FB page if you want to know if a particular dog will be at the showing.

If you are interested in a particular dog, or a type of dog, please submit an application to foster or adopt (it's the same application form). Once you have an approved application for a dog, we will connect you with the dog's foster parent. Typically the potential adopter & foster talk on the telephone first. Then if the dog seems like a good fit, we arrange a personal meet & greet.
