Thank you for your interest in adopting a beagle into your family.  Before you complete the application, please read the following:

Beagle Paws does not warrant the health, fitness, or temperament of the dog and it makes no representations as to its health, fitness, or temperament.  It is important to realize that Beagle Paws may not know the history of the dog.

  • You must be at least 19 years of age to adopt.

  • A Beagle Paws rescue dog is not suited for any type of off leash activities outside of a secured fenced area.  This includes such things as off-leash walking/running, hunting, etc.

  • Beagles can live up to 15 years or more.

  • Adopting a dog brings with it a financial commitment and possibly unexpected veterinary expenses, which is something you must consider and be prepared for.

  • An adopted dog may require housetraining, basic obedience and socialization.  A gradual introduction to children, pets or visitors to the home may be necessary.

  • It can take several days or longer for a rescue dog to settle into a new routine.  Please know that changes to a dog’s environment may cause the dog to have accidents or possibly exhibit other behaviours within this adjustment period.

  • All applicants are subject to a screening process which can take several weeks to complete.  We do this to ensure that the health, wellbeing and happiness of each dog can be met.  As part of our application process, a visit to your home will be required.

  • There is a non-refundable adoption fee of $400 (adult dogs and puppies) due in full upon final approval of the adoption.

  • Completion of this Adoption Application does not mean you are obliged to adopt.

  • False information will lead to an automatic rejection of this Adoption Application.

  • Beagle Paws reserves the right to decline any applicant.

*Please note: We appreciate your desire to want to adopt a beagle, but not every home is suitable for the dogs in our care.  As such, we will only contact those applicants that we feel can support the needs of our rescue dogs.
