SNBRF Happenings: See what is new with us and with some of our alumni
One of the many people who have found the Southern Nevada Beagle Rescue Foundation a place not only to adopt Beagles (and other canines), Rob has found a community of individuals who have a common cause.Rob grew up in a house full of beagles.
Before retiring in the Vegas valley, he moved often with his job. He did not feel it would be fair to have animals to be home alone when his job which took him on the road most of the time.When he settled after retiring, his search for a companion began. Rob first found the Bassett Hound Rescue and adopted through them.
Soon something seemed incomplete; he knew a beagle was needed to make his home complete. A search on the Internet lead him to the Southern Nevada Beagle Rescue Foundation.He has adopted 4 beagles from the organization. Cleo, had cancer and was active until the end. She used to find diggable areas under the backyard fence, dig an escape tunnel and set off exploring. Neighbors would find her in the neighborhood and return her later in the day after she got tired of exploring.
Rob finds a solo beagle is not enough; they need company. His original beagle used to howl all day when he was off running errands. Two keep themselves amused and pretty much out of trouble – beagles staying out of trouble? Rob finds a solo beagle is not enough; they need company.

Rob has had at least five beagle companions since his retirement like Cleo; now Coco and Rosie are at his residence. Rosie also likes to escape and chase rabbits on the golf course behind his house. Sometimes the rabbit is not fast enough and is brought back as a trophy to show Rob.
Rob finds the beagle rescue as a place to find dogs in need of assistance. The dogs come from broken homes, abusive homes, being abandoned and being mistreated. He finds they need help and it helps him to create a loving home environment.Rob sees beagles bringing joy to so many. His beagles draw many to their antics during the Annual Pow-Wow in Rob’s community. It is hectic, noisy and fun. And all sorts of animals get prizes for a list of competitions during the day.
Asked why he choose to adopt through the So Nv Beagle Rescue, Rob relied, “It is THE PLACE for Beagles
Puppy Mill Dogs
Did you hear about the Puppy mill dogs?
You may know we work with National Mill dog rescue. This organization pulls dogs out of puppy mills. Any dog in that situation is lucky to get out, the conditions are usually horrible.
We recently got a group of 5 beagles and 2 yorkies. Most are shy and some downright skittish. They have not had much human contact, but they are learning to trust with patience and love.
All are in the process of getting vetted and will be looking for their forever homes. Look on our social media or website for more images
We also took 10 beagles in from a hoarding case where there were 150 beagles living in rabbit hutches and kennels outside. Many are in very poor condition and 4 of them have heartworm, a deadly disease if not treated. We are currently working on bringing them all to a healthy status. for some this will take months. They also are looking for their homes. Look on our website or social media for more images
