About Us

~Saving Beagles since 2001 ~

Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland, Inc., or Beagle MarylandTM, is a nonprofit organization founded in April 2001 and dedicated to saving beagles and placing them in loving homes. Our beagles come in as strays, from shelters, and as owner surrenders. Some come into rescue needing only current vaccinations, regular meals, and love; others may need extensive vetting, nutritional support, or even lifesaving surgery before they are ready to be offered for adoption. We do all we can to help every beagle in need who crosses our path.

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

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!
