Southern Arizona Beagle Rescue asked that I put out their SOS for foster homes. Of course, I am always happy to do so.
Who is SoAZBR? SoAZBR is a non-profit animal rescue group that has been rescuing beagle and beagle-mix dogs for over 8 years and has placed hundreds of beagles and beagle-mix dogs in loving forever homes. This all-volunteer rescue group works hard toward the day when Southern Arizona no longer euthanizes adoptable dogs.
Where do these Snoopy lookalikes come from? SoAZBR works closely with all shelters in Southern Arizona such as Pima Animal Care Center and other animal rescue groups. Other sources of include strays or dogs that come from families who can no longer care for their pets.
How do these adorable dogs end up in shelters? Frequently they are strays and sometimes owners have to give up their dogs due to moving, losing a job and/or home, a death in the family or no longer able to care for a pet. Occasionally, it’s because owners don’t understand beagle traits such as beagles following their noses.
What’s involved in fostering a Beagle? SoAZBR places their dogs in foster families who will temporarily look after and feed a dog until a forever home can be found. All medical bills are paid by SoAZBR. Check out their website for the volunteer/fostering application . You can also, call 520-247-7720 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. They will do a quick home visit to ensure your home and yard are “beagle proof.”
Fostering is a chance to personally contribute to the day when Southern Arizona no longer euthanizes adoptable dogs. The Rescue is available for support and will pay for any medical care the foster dog may need.
The rewards of fostering a dog are great. Imagine that happy wagging tail walking off to a forever home because you gave a beagle or beagle mix a chance!
