Review for Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue Inc, Blairstown, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2008, I responded to a beagle that was posted on This beagle was from Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue. After being interviewed,they accepted my application and let me adopt my Mia. She is a very sweet,smart beagle and quickly made friends with my other beagle, Sammy. She went to classes to become a Pet Therapy dog. She does pet therapy at Wayne View Care Center, where I work. When I received Mia, she was very shy around other people but was slowly warming up to the residents. In April of 2010, I had her at Wayne View, when she slipped her collar and got loose. She was gone for over a week. During this time, Safe Hound Rescue was there every step of the way. Karen Philhower who runs the rescue, told me everything to do and set up a humane trap to get her back. But the most important thing she did was to keep my spirits up and kept me going. She went way beyond just a simple adoption. She truly cares about each and every animal she has and continues to care even after the adoption. She is definately an angel.
