Main storySFBR currently closed for new intakesWe need your help to continue saving livesIt is widely known that these are desperate times for dog rescuing, especially in South Florida. Municipal shelters throughout the region are overwhelmed and even turning away dogs due to lack of space and resources. Meanwhile, local rescue organizations such as South Florida Beagle Rescue are being inundated with phone calls and emails asking for help.The volunteer team at SFBR is trying its best to open our doors to stray, sick and surrendered dogs but sometimes, the need simply outweighs our capacity. At the moment, SFBR is closed for new intakes – we have too many sick dogs in our care and not enough fosters. Four of our rescues are heartworm positive, one has cancer, and another is slowly recovering from a respiratory condition which is a lot for a new and small rescue to take on. While several are in loving foster homes, some must be boarded due to lack of temporary fosters. Most are still looking for their forever families. In order to ensure these dogs receive the best care possible, we simply do not have the bandwidth to rescue more dogs at the moment.But we can change this with the help of our community. Specifically, we are in desperate need of fosters willing to take in one of our dogs temporarily – a few days, a couple weeks, sometimes longer. That way, we can balance caring for our current dogs with helping those still out there who need us. We also need supplies to keep our foster dogs happy and comfortable - food and water bowls, beds, crates, leashes and harnesses. And, of course, monetary donations are always welcomed to help pay our vet expenses.Together, we can save so many lives! Please help us continue our mission!Howlin’ Good TimesFREE group training class and pup play dateJoin us for a day of learning and playing during our FREE group training class with Happy with Dogs this Saturday, February 25th from 10-11 a.m at Maurice A.

What a great reunion of old friends and some of the newest SFBR alumni who are now living their best lives with their furever families. w/photos of eventFab FostersThe generosity of our fosters never goes unnoticed, especially when they are willing to foster not one, not two, but THREE of our rescued dogs. Adrian and Daniela have opened their home and hearts to three of our pups needing temporary places to stay. First, they took care of Sophia, a sweet beagle we found. Then, when Buddy was surrendered to us from a home in Central Florida, Adrian and Daniela let him sleep over a couple nights before he joined his board and train program at Happy With Dogs. And most recently, these amazing fosters helped Paolo the hound get ready for his forever home. We are very grateful to Adrian and Daniela for helping our dogs and the rescue continue to save more dogs in need. w/photos and link to foster applicationMissing beaglesLucy, Max, Buddy w/photos - PulgaAdoptables Paolo, Niko, Smokey, Teeter, Riddle, Oliver.About SFBREstablished in early 2022, South Florida Beagle Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue and advocacy organization committed to re-homing beagles and beagle mixes – and any furry four-legged friends that come our way.Led by founders Yessy, Karla, and Irene, SFBR relies on fosters, volunteers and donors to make a difference in the lives of animals across South Florida.
