It's been a busy summer! More beagles have shown up in Arizona's shelters in the last few months than any time we can remember. And every day we are asked to take in dogs who have been abandoned or neglected or whose owners can no longer care for them.
So far this year we've saved 94 wonderful beagles and gotten them ready for their new forever homes. But saving all of these lives has come at a cost. AZBR's funds have been severely depletedby this summer's vet bills. Our resources are so low that we are temporarily limiting vet visits and
medical procedures for foster dogs. We may also have to limit intake of new dogs until the financial situation improves.
How can you help? Here's how:
Donations: Every dollar you're able to give goes directly to the medical needs of these wonderful dogs and prepares them for adoption. And donating to AZBR is a great way to 'pay forward' the happiness you get from your own beagle. You can mail a check (payable to Arizona Beagle Rescue) to: P.O. Box 61193, Phoenix AZ 85082-1193, donate to the general fundthrough PayPal or to medical campaigns for specific dogs such as the three emergencies we had recently:
Grocery store rewards: Is your Fry's Food and Drug card linked to benefit Arizona Beagle Rescue when you shop for groceries? Last quarter we received $630 from Fry's. Read more about this HERE.
AZBR Coin Banks: Do you own or know a local business that will let us place our cute little heart coin banks near their cash registers? If so, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org today!
Holiday Gift Wrapping: Last year we raised an amazing $4,000+ through wrapping holiday presents at Barnes and Noble locations throughout the valley. It's a fun and easy way to help the dogs. The schedule of available shifts will be out soon. Please help when you can.
As always, no beagle would get saved without the active support and hard work of every donor, foster, and volunteer who makes AZBR happen. We truly appreciate your help and your compassion for Arizona's beagles. Thank you for your time.

is in desperate need of loving foster homes. We have beagles coming to
us from the shelter's e-lists, owner releases, and all sorts of other
places regularly. We often have beagles in boarding that need the
attention they would receive in a home.
We could also benefit from foster homes that have no other dogs for a couple of the beagles in our care.
Please help us place all our beagles in temporary homes until they find their forever homes!
