*APPLICATIONS FOR BEAGLE ADULTS NOW CLOSED!* Thank you to everyone who submitted an adoption application for one of our grateful Beagles. Our staff will be in touch with you over the next couple of weeks as the Beagles start returning from their foster homes to go up for adoption! We do ask that if you are contacted by a member of the KHS team to schedule an appointment to meet your potential Beagle buddy, you reply promptly to our communications. Due to the large number of applications we have received, we will not be able to respond to individual inquiries regarding application status or timelines. We thank you all for your patience and your compassion!
The adult Beagles KHS took in from a mass breeding facility in early August are almost ready for adoption. The Beagles have spent the last few weeks in loving foster homes where they have been socializing and learning to be dogs for the first time. While a few of our adult Beagles are ready for loving homes now, some of the Beagles will need another week or so in foster care before they will be ready for their forever homes.
What to Expect:
It is extremely rewarding to give a dog who has experienced neglect or abuse a new lease on life. However, welcoming a dog who has been through these challenges into your home requires a great deal of patience and understanding. Most dogs rescued from situations like these have been under-socialized and isolated throughout their lives. They haven’t met many people, they’ve never walked on a leash or played with toys, and they are not house-trained. The Beagles are all individuals and their behavior varies on what they’ve experienced in life. Some will come out of their shells quickly and transform into outgoing pups despite their rough start. Others will need more time and patience as they learn to adjust to their new world. We ask that all families considering adopting one of our Beagle adults be prepared to take things slow and be patient with their new family member.
We are now accepting applications from interested families who want to adopt one of the Beagle adults in our care. We know many of you are excited about the opportunity to possibly adopt one of these deserving dogs! Due to the high volume of requests we have received from our compassionate community, we are limiting the number of applications we accept to 50. Once we have received 50 applications, we will update the page to say we are no longer accepting applications and the link will be deleted. In addition, only one application per household is permitted.
Applications will only be accepted through the application link below. We are unable to accept walk-in applications or adoption requests for the Beagles. Applications will be reviewed in the order that they are received, and completion of the application is not a promise of adoption. We are not taking applications for specific adult Beagles. If your application is approved, we will contact you and schedule a time for you to meet with one of our adoption counselors, who will help match you with an available Beagle. Please note: we expect the adult Beagles to come trickling in from their foster homes over the next couple of weeks as they become ready for adoption. Please be patient with our staff as we work to process adoption applications in the order we receive them.
About the Beagle Adults:
The Beagles range in age from 1 year to 10 years old but all of our Beagles are female. All of the Beagles have been spayed, micro-chipped, and they are up-to-date on vaccinations. Their adoption fee is $200.
