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

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife and I were hoping to find a beagle for adoption to love and share our home with. We found Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue when looking at the available beagles for adoption online at Petfinder. We looked at Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue's website and saw pictures of two beagle mix dogs, one named Emily and the other Francesca. We immediately filled out an application. We were contacted by Karen Philhower at Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue and set up a place to meet her with both dogs. We were introduced to Francesca and Emily separately and spent time with them. It was difficult to decide between the two dogs because they are both really lovable dogs, but we decided to adopt Emily. We came home with Emily (now named Maddie) along with a wonderful starter kit from Karen containing DVDs on dog training, her micro-chip, a heart worm pill, health records, vacination records, lots of literature, just to name a few things. Karen has always been available to us whenever we have a question, and we have kept in touch by phone and email. It is obvious to us that she really loves and gives wonderful care to the animals she rescues. We absolutely love Maddie (Emily). She is the sweetest and most loving dog you could ever meet. And she really makes us laugh. Thank you Karen Philhower and Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue for making our lives complete. Ian and Pat Goodman

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

our adoption of Emily (Maddie). It was a wonderful experience. When the time comes for us to add a friend for Maddie, we will definitely contact Karen Philhower at Safe Hounds Beagle Rescue. I can't say enough good things about them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do nothing to change it. It's perfect the way it is.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Karen has kept in touch with us to see how we are doing with the new addition to our family. She really cares.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

pleasant, informative, caring, honest and giving.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

rescue more dogs.

Ways to make it better...

I honestly can't think of anything.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I do not know this for a fact, but I would imagine they could use more donations for the care of these wonderful beagles. It must be challenging these days to get donations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

God bless them for the good work they are doing.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
