How to Adopt

Thanks for your interest in adopting a rescued hound from Hound Rescue. Below are the steps we need you to take in order to adopt one of our hounds.

  1. Please read BREW's "So you think you want a beagle".
    NOTE: This will open in a new window and you will be leaving the Hound Rescue site - Do NOT complete BREW's application (if you are asked to pay a fee you are completing the wrong form). Our application is linked from the bottom of this page (scroll down on this page)

  2. Please review the beagle breed info online at Beagles On The Web to learn more about the breed and whether a beagle will be a good match for your family.

  3. Check out our Available Dogs. If none are available, please e-mail us to let us know what you're looking for so we can add you to our waiting list.

  4. If there is a hound(s) you're interested in, please complete our application (there is a link at the bottom of this page). We evaluate applications in the order they are received.
    NOTE: We make every effort to keep the website up-to-date, but be aware that the specific dog you're interested may not still be available. In this case we encourage you to consider other hounds listed on our site.

  5. Once we have received your application we will review it and contact you at the e-mail address you provide. Then we work with you to determine if the hound you're interested in will be a good fit for your situation or suggest ones that might be a better fit. Note that we also require a home visit prior to adoption.


    The adoption fee for most dogs is $200. Puppies are $250. Seniors are $150. ALL animal are spayed or neutered. If the dog is too young we require a deposit which will be refunded when we receive proof of surgery.

NOTE: If you are interested in a specific dog the quickest way to get information is to complete the application, not to email first.
