Adopting a BTTR Beagle



We are thrilled you are interested in adopting a BTTR beagle! Once you see a dog that you are interested in give us a call or send us an email and we can give you some more info about that dog and see if he or she might be a good fit for your family. If it seems like a good match we will have you set up a time to come out and do a meet and greet at our facility in Chesapeake. One of our staff will be there to answer any questions you may have about the dog and talk with you more about the adoption process. We will have you fill out our online adoption application and if you decide you want to go through with the adoption we will set up a “yard check” to make sure that your fencing (if you have a fenced in backyard which is preferred) is beagle-proof. Since we are a 100% volunteer run organization we do require that all adopters live with in 1.5 hour driving distance of zip code 23322 (Chesapeake, VA) in order for one of our volunteers to perform a yard check. All adoptions start out with a trial period to make sure that everyone people and dogs alike are happy with adoption.
