The adoption fee for most of these dogs is $200, puppies are $250, seniors $150; if a dog is not spayed or neutered we require a $75 deposit, which is refundable once surgery is performed.

Please consider adopting one of our sweet seniors! Read the top ten reasons to adopt an older dog here.

The page is updated regularly, please scroll to the bottom of the page to see all of our available dogs.

Also, [Application Pending] means the dog does have an application, but backups are welcome and [Adoption Pending] means the dog is in an adoptive home on the trial period, but has not yet been adopted so we will still accept applications until the adoption is finalized.

Sherman

Sherman is a sweet one! He loves to go for walks and runs, wants to be outside whenever possible, and loves to be rubbed. He gets along great with other dogs. He is house trained and perfectly happy sleeping on his own bed, so his foster family has had no need to crate him. Sherman is a few pounds overweight but his foster mom has had success getting a lot of the extra weight off with constant walks and quality food. He also enjoys a good bath as well!

Sherman would be a great family dog.

Poochie

Poochie is an 8-year-old beagle mix who was surrendered to a local shelter because her elderly owner was no longer able to care for her. Poochie is brand new to the Hound Rescue program as of this writing, so we still have to learn about her. Initial observations while she was still at the shelter were that she seems like a gentle soul, and while responsive to attention, was primarily interested in getting out of that shelter! She also seemed friendly towards other dogs. Poochie rode quietly on both legs of her “freedom ride.”

Check out those sweet brown eyes with her face encircled by the surgical collar. How can you resist?

Manny

Hi! I'm Manny. I've had a tough go at life but luckily Hound Rescue found me and gave me the medical care I desperately needed. I am now fully recovered and feeling great. Although I have adjusted well to living with other dogs in my foster home, I am ready for a permanent home of my own.

I love to go on walks and sit on the couch so my foster mom can pet me. I just started being interested in squeaky toys but not too sure what to do with them yet. I like other dogs but am still a little shy around new dogs I meet. I don't like when the humans leave without me and I bark for a bit when we are separated . I don't destroy anything and I know to go potty outside. Please consider adopting me if you're looking for a laid back guy who is just looking for love and willing to love you back.

Scout

Scout is a typical beagle - high energy, super friendly personality and very loving. However, unlike most beagles, Scout loves to play fetch. And yes, he actually brings it back! This guy loves to cuddle and will not turn down a massage, really loves to be petted. Scout is a pack dog and will need a canine companion; he seems to get along best with dogs his size or larger. He has functioned well in settings both with and without dog doors. He is crate-trained, although he fusses when you first put him in. He walks great on a leash and loves to sing the song of his people. AROO!!! He is also a great car rider.

Scout would be willing share your favorite chair or your bed if you let him.

Sam

Sam is a gorgeous young dog, very striking. He was a big hit at Dogtoberfest in October. We believe his breed to be Colombian fino hound, possibly a mix. Sam looks like a beagle-basset mix, only 3 times as large as a typical beagle! He is very friendly and good-natured and absolutely loves everyone. He seems to do well with other dogs.

Sam is very strong and still has a lot of young dog energy, so needs lots of outlets for that energy, especially considering his size. He still needs training and will do best with an experienced dog owner who can handle a strong and energetic dog. Sam will reward your attention with all his exuberance and love!

Joey

Joey is a 11 years young beagle/cocker mix looking for his forever home! Don't let his age fool you; he's still an energetic dog who can chase a ball for hours. Joey's previous owner raised him since he was a puppy, but unfortunately had to go to a nursing home when she could no longer take care of him. Joey craves attention, loves to snuggle, and is an excellent lap dog. He's used to being the king of the castle and will need a patient and loving home willing to work with him and his strong sense of ownership over toys and treats. He is house trained, walks well on a leash, gets along well with dogs and cats, and would do best in a home with no children.


If you're looking for an energetic and lovable dog, Joey might be the guy for you!

Julie & Faith

Sometimes we come across a dog that pulls on our heartstrings. In this case it was a bonded pair of girls, Julie and Faith. These ladies were owner surrendered by an owner that could no longer care for them. Faith and Julie are a team; where one goes the other follows! These sweet girls love to just hang out and chill. Food, water, soft beds and some cuddles are all these gals need. However, couch privileges are appreciated. These seniors are heartworm positive and too aged for typical treatment. We are hoping to find just the right place for the lovely ladies to spend their remaining years. Oh, no cats please.

Lacey

Lacey is a friendly, easygoing 8-year-old beagle. She was an only dog in her previous home, but gets along great with the four other dogs in her foster home, as well as the two cats. Lacey loves playing with her stuffed toys, and likes to walk around the house with one hanging out of her mouth – so cute! Lacey is quite hefty right now, but is already losing weight. Despite the extra pounds, this girl can get around – and has even proven to be a bit of a door-dasher! She loves walks (although we have to keep them short right now) and enjoys checking out the backyard, taking breaks for some vigorous backscratching in the grass. With continued weight loss, we expect her to become even more active.

Lacey has the sweetest face with large brown eyes that will just melt your heart!

Bentley

Bentley is a lovely, typical beagle boy. He is very mellow and loves to follow his people around and just lay about. When he's up and about, he loves toys and hoards them in his crate. He gets along well with the foster family's dog and loves to play. The only time he's barked was when he spotted a cat in the yard, we think he wanted to play! We are working on basic training with Bentley as he definitely inherited the breed's finer qualities! Bentley does have heartworms and Hound Rescue will cover the cost of treatment. We would expect his energy will pick up a bit once he's out the other side of treatment.

Overall he's a fun beagle boy who just needs a second chance at forever!

Snoop

Snoop is a super expressive character that loves to interact with people and other dogs. He's very vocal with little grumbles when he's settling in for a nap and lots of classic beagle howling at play time. Snoop love's mixing it up with other dogs, especially playing keepaway and also loves a good cuddle. Couches and pillows are his favorite for napping. He does some adorable stretching and scratching routines when he wakes up in the morning. If you want a real show grab a laser pointer and watch him chase the dot around howling all the way. Like many a beagle Snoop is always on the hunt for something to eat and he's not afraid to pull something out of a waste basket if he can reach it so your house may need a little Snoop proofing. He's ok on a leash but tends to pull and get's excited when other dogs are around. Snoop does not respond well to harsh corrections or threatening behavior so you'll need to have some patience when he gets out of line.

All and all he's a sweet guy with a little mischievous streak who just wants love and to be a part of whatever's going on.
