find beagles in shelters

Most stray or abandoned beagles aren’t lucky enough to be taken in by a beagle rescue. As a result, there are thousands of beagles for adoption in shelters across North America. You can make a big difference to one of these hounds by giving them a safe, loving home for the rest of their life.

Before you bring home your beagle, though, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have a fully fenced yard with no holes underneath?
  • Are you able to exercise your beagle for 5+ hours per week?
  • Are you willing to change your lifestyle for this hound?
  • Do you love the sound of a beagle howling and baying?

If the answer to all these questions is yes, then a beagle just might be the right fit for you! We’ve put together links to the three most popular pet finder sites below.
