We, unfortunately, had to give up our eight year old beagle (Ginger) after we had to move in with our elderly mother-in-law and Ginger's food aggression became unmanageable around other dogs. The B&B team was informed, compassionate, and professional while we went through the emotional process of giving up the dog we love. Ginger has a new home more suitable for her personality, and we feel much better knowing that even though we no longer have her, she is loved and cared for. B&B provides a valuable service that is humane to both pets and their human family members!
Thank you Beagles & Buddies for doing what you do. We adopted our Blue Tick Cooney. Aroo is such a wonderful member of our family.
Four of our six rescues we have adopted over the years have come from Beagles and Buddies. Nora, our 15 year old beagle, was our first adoption from B&B when they were in El Monte. They moved up to our home town, Apple Valley, a few years ago. We adopted Hunter about 2 and a half years ago and when he passed we adopted Lucy. Then we recently adopted our big boy,Gus, from Beagles and Buddies, so our high energy Lucy would have someone to play with.
Connie does a great job finding homes for these hounds and buddies. Connie, the volunteers staff, and various service groups all help to keep this wonderful organization going.
Beagles and Buddies have helped so many homeless and unwanted dogs. She has always opened her rescue to help those no one else will.
Beagles and Buddies is managed by a strong and sensible woman, Connie Kramer. Her compassion along with her managerial skills make for a very successful, well-run dog-rescue facility with a high rate of placement for the dogs in her care.
I have been a contributor to Beagles and Buddies for over a decade since I adopted my first dog from them. I'm impressed that Ms. Kramer not only makes good use of her staff and volunteers, but also that she has the business skills to allocate the monetary donations wisely. Every donation goes toward feeding and medical care or upgrading the facilities to make the sanctuary a clean and comfortable living space for the dogs.
Some rescue shelters seem to do everything in their power to KEEP a person from adopting a dog. B & B takes the opposite position and devises strategies to help a person through the adoption and home adjustment process.
Staff and volunteers recognize the importance of "socialization" for animals and work with the dogs until they are ready to be adopted into their "forever home." They get to know each canine in their care and make helpful suggestions so that the placement will work for both dogs and people. All our Beagles and Buddies rescue dogs have been such delightful additions to our family.
Connie Kramer runs Beagles and Buddies. She is tireless and has devoted her life to the care of animals in need. I reached out to her when I saw a dog in another shelter that was in dire shape.
She stepped u to the call for help. Since then, I've come to respect and admire her as she has a relationship with dogs that is remarkable. I even started volunteering for Beagles and Buddies for several years because I felt I could learn a lot about what is involved in running a rescue.
Beagles and Buddies has been my sunshine on a rainy day.i started donating a couple years ago and fell in love with this rescue and the people in it.i have really been involved with the help heal center i recently lost my husband to cancer and this rescue gave me the strength to go on.the staff is great everybody is there because they are in it for the dogs love this place
I cannot believe how out of their way B&B goes to help out dogs who need it - they do everything humanly possible. They have saved THOUSANDS of dogs since their start in 1992. I have seen many dogs come in from terrible places and go out to a wonderful home. It's a beautiful place to be!
Beagles & Buddies has been rescuing dogs for many years. Their Apple Valley facility is large with plenty of room for the dogs to run and play. All types of dogs are rescued so if you are looking to adopt, you have lots to choose from. Many are rescued from the kill shelters just before their time is up. B&B is a no-kill shelter.
Exceptional hard work in finding just the most compatible family that will be able to live, love and respect the companionship of all in the household. Some dogs have special needs and some families have special needs. It is imperative that all aspects of the adoption process is followed so everyone is happy. Many dogs find these homes at Beagles and Buddies. It is a great adoption center and a sanctuary for many dogs who can live our their lives there. Lots of space and play areas for all.
