Poodle mix Odie featured in Wahl's 2020 Dirty Dogs calendar
Little 10 year old Odie, a miniature poodle mix, came into our rescue on May 21, 2019, frightened and matted. Three days later, a wonderful groomer named Jessica Meyer came in with a friend to look at dogs. She liked our rescue so much that
she offered to become a volunteer. Odie was her first project, and his makeover was amazing. His before and after pictures were submitted to the annual Wahl's Dirty Dog Contest, which judges grooming efforts
from rescues across the nation. Odie made it all the way to the Top Ten. This earned him a spot in Wahl's 2020 Dirty Dogs calendar!
He is the dog for October. The calendar may be bought
His fame also landed him on the front page of the local paper, The Daily Press.

Special Adoption Day
"Snoopy, Come Home" DVD Debut
On March 26, 2006 B&B hosted a gala premiere screening of the 'Snoopy, Come Home' DVD for over 40 Beagle guests of honor to coincide with the unveiling of a renovated space for adopting families at our Red Cloud Ranch facility.
Thanks to Paramount Entertainment and Paradigm Shift Worldwide for the gift of transforming our ugly garage to a beautiful Snoopy Doghouse Adoption Center! We'll all be enjoying our "extreme make-over" for a long time and it'll surely facilitate visiting and adopting our Snoopies and their pals.
HomeAgain donated permanent pet identification and recovery services to adopted dogs at this event. Charlie Brown and Snoopy costume characters were on hand, and in spirit of Lucy's kissing booth, a
smoochy Beagle booth provided even more fun!

Beagles, Doxies and the Opera!
The Los Angeles High School for the Arts' Full Circle Opera Project performed The Marriage of Figaro at the Luckman Theatre on the campus of CSULA in March of 2006. Two dogs from Beagles and Buddies had their operatic debut in this production. Dot, a 2 year old beagle girl looking for a home and everyone's friend, Tinkerbell, the therapy dachshund with a disability and emissary of good.
Tinkerbell was given to B&B by her "family." She was disabled due to a back injury and only had half of her hair due to excessive amounts of fleas and mange. The $20 check donated by her family for caring for her for the rest of her life even bounced! B&B fitted her with a doggie cart and she was adopted. Since that rescue 6 years ago, she has become somewhat of a celebrity. She is certified through Therapy Dog International and visits classrooms, retirement homes, the local Children's Hospital and Ronald McDonald houses, bringing a message of hope and love. She has been in newspapers, in a book (Rescued Tails, Vol.1 - scroll down for more info) and her first feature length film comes out this summer, "The Man In The Chair" with Christopher Plummer and Robert Wagner (she's a pound puppy extra!) Keep an eye out for her childrens' book coming out soon, "Weiner With A Heart."
Hi, I'm Dot! I'm a two year old girl who would love to play and go exploring with you. My original family moved to another state and they left me at the animal shelter. It was soooooo cold and scary there! I didn't understand why they weren't coming back for me. I was sad and lonely until one of the nice rescuers from Beagles and Buddies saw me and took me to their "Red Cloud Ranch." I'm making lots of friends here. I wish I had my own forever family, though. Please come meet all of us beagles and buddies. There are all kinds of breeds, sizes and playfulness levels here who just want to love and be loved by you... then, all of our stories will have happy endings!
B&B and 'Rescue Railroad" in the news...
The rescue railroad broadens the reach of the animal-rescue community. It allows adopted animals to be delivered to new owners hundreds of miles away, or gives animals facing euthanasia at a county shelter a second chance at a private shelter. We were recently featured in a great article in the "Fresno Bee" which shed's more light on the "railroad".
