Thank you for your interest in fostering a beagle. 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 does not know the history of the dog.

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

  • All foster dogs actively remain up for adoption while in foster care.

  • If you are considering adopting a beagle we ask that you complete the adoption application.

  • 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, etc.  Hunting with a foster dog is not permitted.

  • Foster dogs 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.  Changes to a dog’s environment may cause the dog to have accidents.  Being patient and taking the time to work with the dog through this adjustment stage can help in successfully integrating a foster beagle into your home.   

  • All applicants are subject to a screening process.  We do this to ensure that the health, wellbeing and happiness of each dog can be met while in foster care.  As part of our application process a visit to your home may be required.

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

  • Beagle Paws reserves the right to decline any applicant.

*Please note: We appreciate your desire to want to foster 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.
