SFBR earns Great Nonprofits Top-Rated 2022 badgeIt is with great pride that we announce that South Florida Beagle Rescue has earned the Great Nonprofits Top-Rated 2022 badge. With this designation, the work of SFBR to rescue animals in need will be amplified, paving the way for additional donor contributions and volunteer participation. The SFBR team is humbled and honored to receive this recognition, and grateful to all those who make it possible for us to continue with our rescue mission. SFBR is 100% volunteer and donor based, and all of our leaders and volunteers work full-time jobs. We rescue on our own time, without pay, because we know that it’s the only way for many pups to get a second chance at happiness. SFBR Virtual Foster program Want to help a rescue dog, but can’t physically foster or adopt? Well, SFBR is launching a Virtual Foster program, a unique and easy way to help save lives. Contribute an amount of your choosing - whether in monthly installments or a one-time payment - and help fund a rescue dog’s food, vet care, transportation, and more. Remember that fostering - whether physically or virtually - saves lives. Stay tuned to our website for additional details coming soon. Fab Fosters: It has truly taken a village to help one of SFBR’s most challenging rescue pups - Mango. The rescue could not have done it without the selflessness and generosity of Mango’s fosters, specifically Ben, Caitlin, Yeliana, and Karen. Thes four individuals have stood by Mango’s side throughout his many ups and downs, his frightening seizures, and his behavioral issues. They showed him love and the warmth of a peaceful home, despite sleepless nights, one scary visit to the emergency vet, and a recently diagnosed partial blindness possibly due to the seizures. Because of their devotion to Mango, whether through donating, transporting, or fostering, this pup has plowed through, and his tail has never stopped wagging. Now, Mango is settling into his new foster home, thanks to the generosity of another SFBR foster in Fort Pierce who has experience with dogs who suffer from seizures and has committed to help get him healthy and adoptable. Fostering saves lives, and Mango’s story proves it. Howlin’ Good TimesOur SFBR family, friends and supporters had a spooktacular time on October 29th during Royd’s Spooky Pooch Parade!

Happy Tales Finding forever homes for our rescued pups is our ultimate goal, and this month we have had tremendous success. Four dogs rescued by SFBR - Hitch, Ronnie, Poppy, and Amy - are now living their best lives with their new families. Hitch and his beagle sister Lilly are loving all the snuggles on the couch, while Ronnie (now Charlie) enjoys running around his gorgeous backyard overlooking a golf course. Poppy, who spent some time getting in shape at a foster home, takes daily walks on a golf course. Amy (now Peanut), well, let’s just say she’s embraced “condo living” with a beautiful balcony overlooking the river. We are so happy for our pups, and so grateful to their families for giving them a second chance.
