Help & FAQ
The decision to adopt a dog is one of great responsibility. When caught up
in the excitement of a new pet, it's easy for people to forget about the lifelong
commitment that pet ownership represents. By adopting rescue dogs instead
of making pet shops purchases you become an active partner in better solutions
to this devestating problem of thrown away animals. Loving trusting loyal
creatures who clearly do not deserve that fate. Your adoption fees help insure
the life & support of many deserving dogs who weren't lucky enough or
glamourous enough to get a second chance at a loving home and will live our
the rest of their lives here in the sanctuary.
Once a doggie makes it to Beagles & Buddies, she or he is safe for life. We either find him or her a great home or will keep the pooch for his or her lifetime. At Beagles & Buddies we attack the devastating problem of discarded creatures in the only way we know how, one little doggie at a time. Unfortunately lifetime commitments on over one hundred dogs costs a wad of money & we generate funds in any way we possibly can.
do you get out of adopting from Beagles and Buddies?
When you find yourself a doggie, before it goes home with its new family it
- Nails clipped and ears cleaned.
- Each dog is given a collar & ID tag.
- We prep your new doggie while you play w/ the other dogs or scooping some
kennel poop or
- Get a lesson in dog bathing or ear cleaning to help prepare you as a doggie
- Each doggie is spayed/neutered & fully vaccinated.
- Their appropriate booster shots are already given, Frontline is applied
as a guard against fleas and ticks & everyone has been wormed.
- To the best of our knowledge each dog is delivered to adoptive parents parasite-free
- Adoptive families enter into a written contract with Beagles & Buddies
which ensures the dog will be returned to us if insurmountable circumstances
are encountered. We fully expect folks to do everything they have promised
in their application & contract, including any necessary training if appropriate.
(We have a wonderful trainer who can help.)
Tax deductible donations begin at $150 dollars & will go up from
there. Puppies & premium purebred dogs help to support the older dogs
& will cost more. Adoption fees help cover medical care & housing
for senior dogs & all those less premium fellas who don't ever get successfully
adopted but will still be lovingly maintained for the remainder of their lives
here at Beagles & Buddies. Our little movie stars & premium purebred
fees will generally cost less than standard retail puppy mill perpetuating
Pet shop purchases ... But quite honestly we intend to charge the highest
possible fee we can for the more marketable & desirable premium dogs.
This really helps us pick up slack on that huge tab for all the others who
are less fortunate & not nearly as glamourous. We hope to squeeze every
single nickel we can out of any adoption. Adoption donations are never for
those dogs you get to take home. They cover all the others being left behind
& also go towards other little fellows who are hopefully lined up at our
back door waiting for a vacancy.
Please keep in touch with us & contact us with any questions or concerns.
If we can help we surely will & when we can't we can often still make
about the dogs that don't get adopted?
Leftover unadopted doggies are every bit as as loving loyal & deserving
as all successfully adopted animals. Quite naturally our puppies & glamour
dogs help support the rest of the gang by their adoption fees.
Your tax-deductable adoption
fee feeds a bunch of the other guys for months or may cover that vet bill
on some other little fellow's broken leg or ear infection. It may just be
that few extra bucks we need that month enabling us to open up the back door
& welcome another needy little guy over into Beagles & Buddies safety
& sanctuary for the rest of his life.
do I go to find myself a companion?
