All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, current on required vaccinations, heartworm-negative (or successfully treated for pre-existing heartworm infection), and microchipped before they go to a permanent home.
BRSM is operated completely by volunteers, and all of our dogs are fostered by volunteers in private homes (we do not have a shelter or kennel). Many of our beagles had unhappy lives before they came to us, and their well-being and quality of life is important to us. Toward that end, we require prospective adopters to submit an Adopter Profile, and dogs are placed in permanent homes that meet our Standards for Adoption.
It is our goal to give our beagles the best opportunity to find loving forever families. We do our best to ensure that they are ready for their forever homes, and that those homes are well-prepared for their new family member.

Please Note: BRSM is an all-volunteer organization; we do not own a kennel or retain employees. Our volunteers work in the "real world" and care for our foster-beagles in their own homes. It may take a few days for us to respond to your adoption request. We understand how exciting the adoption process can be, and we appreciate your patience!
Most of Winston's senior canine friends are unlikely to be adopted --- but we rescue and support them anyway. BRSM will provide them with veterinary care and find a permanent foster home to love them. The permanent foster takes care of their daily needs and routine vetting, but BRSM provides any extraordinary vetting that is required (although in this case, forever fosters must use a vet willing to discount their fees for BRSM).
Please consider opening your heart and home to one of Winston's elder beagle friends. They don't require the non-stop attention of puppies or younger dogs; they'd rather cuddle with you when movie time rolls around. And they're fine with spending their day home alone --- that means they can sleep undisturbed! It may be difficult to think that they will be gone sooner than a younger dog, but the rewards and peace of mind you bring to the elder beagle make it all worthwhile.
If you are interested in fostering a Friend of Winston, please contact us though our Website, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can make a difference!
Please Note: Friends of Winston are always available for regular adoption! In the event that they do not find a forever home, though, we support them in living out their lives with a loving foster family.
Our foster and volunteer network extends throughout Maryland and into Delaware, Virginia, Washington D.C., West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Along with fosters, we need transporters to bring beagles from outlying shelters to vets and foster homes, and from foster homes to Adoption Days and back again.
To volunteer, contact us at email@example.com --- we'd love to hear from you!
