Shelter Spotlight: Beagles and Buddies

Located in southern California, Beagles and Buddies is a no-kill rescue facility dedicated to rescuing unwanted, abandoned and homeless purebred Beagles, mixed Beagles and other hounds. This organization provides medical care for these dogs, including vaccinations and spaying or neutering, and then works to find them loving, permanent homes. Since its inception in 1993, Beagles and Buddies has rescued and found loving permanent homes for more than 12,000 dogs.

While almost all of their adoptable dogs do find a forever home, they are committed to keeping and providing a lifetime safe home for any dog that is not adopted. Beagles and Buddies is a non-profit organization, and it relies upon donations to help fund their rescue work, and volunteers to care for and find new homes for their adoptable dogs.

Interested in adopting a Beagle or Beagle-mix? You can view adoptable dogs on the Beagles and Buddies website. If you see a dog you would like to adopt, your next step is to complete their online Adoption Form before visiting. Beagles and Buddies’ Apple Valley sanctuary is open Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays by appointment only.  Their El Monte sanctuary is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

If you’re not able to adopt, there are other ways you can help! There are a number of volunteer opportunities at their sanctuary, or you can volunteer to provide a foster home for a dog in need. Beagles and Buddies gratefully accepts monetary donations, which are tax-deductible. You can also donate much-needed supplies such as cleaning supplies, canned dog food, and collars and leashes. PetMeds was proud to help support Beagles and Buddies with a donation of pet supplies.
