We are a small 100% Volunteer run rescue located in Chesapeake, VA. We focus on small scale by 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 trail period to all of our adoptions. To get started fill out our Pet Match Form below and check out our Adoption Standards and Adoption Process.

Adoption Process

 Adoption Policies

  1. Beagles will be placed with adults to be kept as companion animals, not as guard or hunting dogs. They are to be accepted as family members and must receive proper nourishment, medical care and attention.
  2. All beagles will be neutered or spayed prior to adoption without exception. Dogs too young or not healthy enough to be spayed or neutered will be placed in homes on a “foster to adopt” basis until spay or neuter
  3. We discourage the adoption of puppies to homes with children under the age of 4 because of the nipping and chewing tendencies of puppies
  4. Young puppies will need someone able to come let it out during the middle of the day. This can include a dog walker, or doggie daycare.
  5. A fenced yard is a requirement for adoption because it protects the dog from roaming. BTTR can make exceptions depending on the beagle you’re considering to adopt. Dogs should never be left unattended for extended periods even in a fenced in areas.
  6. An invisible fence does not qualify as adequate containment for most beagles. BTTR can make exceptions depending on the beagle you’re considering to adopt.
  7. Chaining or tethering is not permitted. Dogs will not be placed in homes where they will be allowed to roam unsecured. Beagles must remain leashed at all times while outside the home, except in a secure, fenced-in areas.
  8. Adopters must be at least 18 years of age. All adults in the household must agree to the selection of the chosen beagle: including parents, relatives, roommates, etc.

  10. Beagles cannot be adopted as gifts. Beagles shall not be given away or sold to another individual. They must be returned to BTTR if the adopter can no longer care for the beagle properly, without requesting a fee. The adopter will receive a refund of the adoption fee if they surrender the dog to BTTR within the given trial period of the adoption (generally 7 days).
  11. All beagles must have collars with owner identification tags, rabies and license tags. If your beagle is lost, a tag may be the only way to have him/her returned to you.
  12. All BTTR beagles will have a microchip inserted. The microchip with be registered by BTTR; however, the adopter is responsible for keeping the information up-to-date and for any fees associated with updating
  13. Currently owned animals should be up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed and neutered and on heartworm prevention (Unless a medical condition prevents doing so). Your veterinarian will be contacted to verify your pet's health record.
  14. A BTTR representative will make arrangements to come to your home and complete a yard check to ensure your fencing is beagle proof
  15. All future veterinary care, including but not limited to vaccinations, city/county licenses, injures, and any genetic/pre-existing conditions are the responsibility of the adopter unless pre-arranged with BTTR.
  16. Due to state/local regulations we are unable to adopt out animals that are not spayed/neutered or that are heartworm positive beyond Chesapeake, VA and surrounding areas (90min driving distance).
