Welcome to Beagles to the Rescue!

About Us

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.

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.

Adopting a BTTR Beagle

BTTR is a small rescue run by volunteers. We usually only have a few dogs at a time and we focus on getting to know each dog and matching them with the perfect home.

We also keep a "Looking for Dogs" list for people searching for a new pet. If BTTR doesn't have a match fill out a Pet Match Form to be added to our list. Many of our dogs get adopted off this list before ever making our website.
