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. To get started check out our adoption process and policies by clicking here.

4,000 Beagles From A Medical Breeding Facility Will Be Needing New Homes Soon.  

 We have had tons of calls and emails about these dogs. THESE DOGS ARE NOT AT BTTR. From what information has been released most of the dogs have not been released and will not be available for adoption for a few months. The Humane Society of the United States is working in collaboration with other organizations to eventually place these dogs. The dogs will be adopted from individual rescues and the adoption requirements will vary from group to group. As of now BTTR will NOT be receiving any of these dogs. For more information about fostering, adopting, and any other questions check out the HSUS's website below.

Where Are All Our Adoptable Dogs?

So many of our dogs get adopted off our ":Looking for Dogs" List before ever making it to this page! Since we only have a few dogs at a time that may mean this page is blank. If you are looking for an adoptable dog and don't see a match here fill out a Pet Match Form or Adoption Application below!
