One of the biggest needs that we have is a place to keep the rescue beagles until we can find their new forever home. Since we don’t have a shelter, we depend on Foster Homes. The beagles stay in these homes until we can find a permanent home for them. If you have room for an extra dog, it’s one of the best ways that you can volunteer. The beagles can stay anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, depending on the amount of work the dog needs. Fosters select which dogs they are ready to foster and when they are ready to foster. Fostering is a big commitment, but a very fulfilling one! If you’ve thought about adopting a beagle, but aren’t quite sure if they’re the breed for you, fostering is a wonderful way to find out about the breed and whether it’s suitable for your lifestyle. If you think you’d be interested in fostering one of our homeless beagles, read our foster home agreement for more information and then fill out an application. Mention on the form that you would like to foster.
Adopt-a-thons and Special Events
We are currently doing adoptathons at both PetSmart (Brier Creek) and at AniMall (in Cary) once a month. If you have a couple of hours on Saturday or Sunday that you can give us, we can use your help here. All that’s required is going to the adoptathon location, helping to handle beagles, handing out literature about the rescue, and answering questions that prospective adopters may ask. We will also be doing special events where we’ll need volunteers. Check our home page often for upcoming volunteer opportunities!
Help with Application Process
Part of applying to adopt a dog from TBR is going through a phone interview and home visit and we always need volunteers to help complete these. When performing a home visit or phone interview, you are supplied with all of the questions that you need to ask and simply enjoy a conversation with an applicant about beagles and fill in the blanks!
Join our Google Group
The majority of our volunteer requests (including foster requests, transport help, phone interviews/home visit requests, and more) are posted to our Google group email list. It’s also a great place to hear amusing beagle anecdotes, ask or answer questions about beagles and experience beagle camaraderie. To join our group go to https://groups.google.com/d/forum/trianglebeaglerescue. The group is moderated so your request to join will need to be approved before you can post on the page.
