Beagle Paws Rescue has aided in animal welfare practices since January 2003 by helping to save abandoned and neglected Beagles. Historically, an over population of the Beagle breed exists in Newfoundland and Labrador due to myths within the hunting community that if a Beagle is spayed or neutered it will ruin their ability to hunt. Beagle Paws Rescue has been working hard to prove these dogs are wonderful family pets who should always live inside. In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, while many other rescue organizations closed their doors to intakes, Beagle Paws Rescue did not. With the help of our dedicated staff, we continued to accept and intervene to rescue unwanted Beagles in our province and bring them to a safe shelter to be cared for, spayed or neutered, and then onto foster homes.
