Ask friends to join you; think of projects and events you might do to help the dogs. Great group of 10-year old friends ran a lemonade stand and baked sweets and sold at a concert in the park - $300 - 2 days! Pretty amazing! Sky's the limit when you brainstorm and get creative.
Meanwhile please have a look at the volunteer information on this page, and do some of our recommended reading. This will get you in good shape for your time with the dogs, puppies, and people of B&B.

Beagles & Buddies
is proud to have rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed over 12,000 dogs in loving homes since it's inception in 1993. As a volunteer you can
do many things to help us continue rescuing dogs. We get phone calls from shelters
all over Southern California that have dogs needing rescue & many times
we don't have anyone to go pick those dogs up. We also need help transporting
sick animals from our kennel to our vet. Of course adoptions days are extremely
lend a hand at the kennel would be a special blessing. Willing to help? Tell
us your talents & we'll put you to work. Visit us & volunteer any amount
of time you have available and are willing to share. These doggies have needs
as simple as playing & socializing with people & also need bathing grooming
We know this work
can be a tugger on emotions, but one look in the eyes of a poor homeless dog
now happily catching ball or on its way to a new safe loving home makes it all
dogs are safe, we have committed to care for them & that's that. We have a terrific vet in Dr. Beeks at Bear Valley Animal Hospital. Our vet
bills are enormous & since we keep feeding these little guys, our collection
of do-do piles never ends & we are always scooping & washing.
See our list of volunteer jobs!
Please help us
adopt these woofers into real homes & open up more kennel space to accept
those others we are now forced to turn away. Little dumplings who are every
bit as sweet & deserving as these guys you see here.
"Special Friends Volunteer Program"
Some of our dogs, like our girl Leslie on the left, are looking for Special Friends – friends who will help them get
adopted! Leslie is our "poster girl" because she is our longest-staying dog right now, having been here at least 9 years, since she was just a pup. We are looking for volunteers who are willing to work one-on-one with a dog who could use a little "coaching" to help them get adopted. If you are interested, you must have come to B&B as a regular volunteer at
least 3 times before you can join this program.
B&B is a no-kill shelter. That means that sometimes a dog can be at B&B for years before the right person comes along to adopt it. The Special Friends program is all about helping these dogs find that special person a
little sooner. To learn more about becoming a Special Friend to a dog in need click here...
More Ways to Help
Adopt one of our dogs, or encourage friends to consider adopting a homeless
dog instead of purchasing a dog or puppy.
Become a temporary foster parent to a dog. We are limited in the number of dogs
we can house on our property so foster homes reduce the number of dogs we have
to turn away when the kennel is overcrowded.
We rescue hundreds of dogs each year because of the continued
support of so many of our friends. Every gift you send means so much because
it enables us to continue helping innocent doggies who deserve a second chance.
BIG THANKS TO THE GIRL SCOUTS!
A local Girl Scout troop donated blankets that they had made to help keep the beagles and buddies warm in the cold months. Many thanks to these young ladies for their hard work!
