Re-Homing Your Beagle

Re-Homing Your Beagle

Arizona Beagle Rescue's primary mission is to prevent Arizona's beagles from being euthanized in the shelters throughout the state. Our goal is to find a loving new home for every adoptable beagle we save from an unnecessary death. We are often contacted by members of the public who must re-home their beagles for a number of reasons. In past years we were able to accept many such dogs. However, the ongoing recession and economic malaise has caused many more beagles to end up on euthanasia lists, and also led to a decrease in both donations and available foster homes. Our foster care spaces are reserved for dogs on the euthanasia list at local shelters.

We usually stay full with dogs that are in danger of losing their lives. As a result, we have found it necessary to severely limit the number of 'owner releases' we take in. If you are looking to re-home your beagle for a reason due to a new baby, behavior issues, allergies, or for similar reasons, the following sites have some excellent tips and resources:

In addition, we can refer you to experienced trainers who may be able to assist you.

On occasion, when we have available space, or approved applicants to match up with an owned dog, we will accept your beagle into our program. In order for us to do so, your dog must be spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations (Rabies, DHLPP and Bordatella) and be heartworm negative. All vet records, our surrender form, and a minimum tax-deductible donation of $50 must accompany your dog. (Of course, we will gladly accept larger donations, which will help us save even more dogs!)

If we are unable to take your beagle and you must still place him or her, please consider placing your dog at AZ Humane Society or Maricopa County Animal Care and Control (MCACC). Your dog stands the best chance at getting adopted by being seen by many people who are looking to adopt a new pet. If you take your beagle to a MCACC shelter, be sure to ask the shelter representative for your beagle's 'A number', the unique identification number given to every animal the shelter takes in. Please send the A# and a detailed description of your pet to

Arizona Beagle Rescue volunteers regularly visit the shelters to assess beagles in their care, and this information will help us identify your dog and possibly aid in the search for a new home. Please contact us at with questions.

Thank you for your support of Arizona Beagle Rescue.
