During these times of crisis we are still providing shelter

Your help is urgently needed to ensure we can continue to provide the basic necessities of life for Beagles in need.  Your one time or monthly donation will help us to continue to operate our new shelter through these difficult times.  We are solely relying on donations from supporters like you. 

We understand that you are struggling like so many others in our community.  We can't thank you enough for making sure vulnerable animals aren't forgotten during this crisis.  We couldn't do this without you.

About Beagle Paws

Beagle Paws is a not-for-profit organization founded in 2003 by Sheila Lewis to rescue mistreated and abandoned Beagles. Since then, we have become Canada’s largest Beagle rescue, re-homing thousands of Beagles right across the country with the help of volunteer chapters and supporters coast to coast.

With Sheila’s continued leadership, our focus remains on advocating to bring the Beagle indoors and to be considered pets, too!

Beagles are the most neglected dog breed in Newfoundland and Labrador, and the number one breed surrendered to local animal shelters. On average, Beagle Paws has 50 Beagles in its care at any given time. This continued demand to provide shelter to one specific breed resulted in a need for a larger, more suitable facility for Beagle Paws.

Building A Better Future.

In 2013, Beagle Paws launched a capital campaign under the name "Building for Beagles" with the goal to purchase a larger and more suitable building.  With a big BOW WOW!, we are thrilled to announce that we have successfully secured a new building and are on the home stretch to reaching our final goal!

We are relying on the generosity of our supporters across the country to reach our final goal of raising $200,000, supporting the purchase and renovation costs incurred to convert our new Adoption and Education Centre into a safe and comfortable space for homeless Beagles waiting to be placed in foster care or their forever home.  

Some of the things your donation will be helping with include:
