Our Mission

Check out our updated website and our Facebook Page for up to date info about new arrivals, and events here at Beagles to the Rescue!

We are Beagles to the Rescue a non-profit animal rescue located in Chesapeake, VA. BTTR was founded in 2008 and has placed over 1,000 dogs and counting since then.

Our beagles come from shelters, hunt clubs, stray pickups, and families across south eastern Virginia and north eastern North Carolina. We are a no-kill organization placing dogs as indoor pets in a home that matches them perfectly.
We are a 100% volunteer run organization and we are funded solely by donations.

We are not a traditional brick and mortar shelter, our dogs live in foster homes or at an open boarding kennel (think giant dog park). The kennel has acres of fenced in grassy fields for the dogs to run and play on while searching for a new home.

Adoption Policy

We are a small 100% Volunteer run rescue located in Chesapeake, VA. We focus on small scale but quality adoptions. We generally only have 1 or 2 dogs at a time which allows our volunteers to get to know each dog. Our goal is to find the perfect match for each family. We offer a trial period to all of our adoptions.

You can read our Adoption Requirements and fill out an application on our website. Click the "Adoption Application" link.

We also keep a "Looking for Dogs" list of people searching for the perfect beagle. Go to our website and fill out a Pet Match Form.
