In 2012 the Animal Control regulations were finalized with the government of Newfoundland and Labrador. To view the new regulations for the standard care of dogs CLICK HERE

In this new act there are many changes on how outdoor beagles and dogs in general should be housed. If you know of a beagle owner who is not in compliance with this act please contact your local municipal government, your local SPCA or Beagle Paws at 738-7297

Photos of Neglect


LOCATION: Conception Bay North 2013 – Casper lived a life of neglect along with another little beagle. Sadly the other beagle did not survive and perished in the winter cold. Casper was the lucky beagle and as you can see he is now warm and safe and loved very much by his new family.



LOCATION: St. John’s 2012 – Marsha used to spend her days tied to this poorly built dog house. Now she is the most loved family pet and is featured in our 2013 Beagle Paws Calendar.


LOCATION: Paradise 2012 – Lexi used to live in this terrible outdoor pen, now since coming into the care of Beagle Paws she has been adopted to a very loving family.



Beagles in photo above located in Conception Bay North – the only access they have to outside is in these raised pens with no shelter on a cliff overlooking the harbour, with no protection to the elements (2011).


Two female beagles rescued by the Clarenville SPCA (2011).

During Rabbit hunting season it is not uncommon to see sights like the above. Beagles being transported in a plywood box on the back of an ATV.

The above photos were taken at a property last winter. On this property there were 2 beagles, the young male shown above and a senior female beagle who lived in the pictured dog house with no floor.  When the owner was asked if he would give up the senior female beagle, he stated “No, I lend her out to my buddies for hunting”

LOCATION: Paradise Newfoundland (2009)

In response to a complaint that Beagle Paws received, the SPCA investigated this horizontal structure with a grey tarp covering it to find a 9 year old beagle named Max. This poorly built dog pen was full of dog feces and unfit for any animal to live in.  Now that Max has been rescued he has to learn everything from scratch after spending his whole live without socializtion and little stimulation everything is new to him.  However, we are pleased to say that Max is doing wonderful, he is loving life to the fulliest and even enjoys his daily trips to the dog park where he can run free.  There is always hope for these animals that haven’t had the best start at life and the volunteers of Beagle Paws are here to make sure we give them this HOPE!

(Max now enjoying his new life)

Beagle Trailer

This trailer from ON was spotted at a rest stop in NL. The beagles are in plastic tubs with holes punched in them for air. They are wrapped in plastic to secure them to the ATVs
