Save a Beagle

A home just isn’t a home without a beagle.

So say the foster families of Triangle Beagle Rescue of North Carolina, who take in abandoned or mistreated beagles until permanent housing is found for them.

“We are in dire need of new fosters, so that we can save more beagles,” said Leann Tenbusch of Cary, who fosters Spanky as a volunteer with the nonprofit TBR. She and her husband began fostering in 2013, after losing their own longtime beagle friend, Taime.

“The beagles can stay anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, depending on the amount of work the dog needs,” Tenbusch said.

Triangle Beagle Rescue operates solely out of foster homes so that its dogs learn the skills they’ll need to be successful family members when they find that forever home.

The all-volunteer group has been rescuing beagles since 1999, with more than 1,500 success stories to date.
