What's Covered in the Adoption Fee?

People often want to know why we charge an adoption fee and what that fee is for. Below is what's covered.

For Adult Beagles:

  • Spay/Neuter
  • Boarding/Food (while being spayed/neutered)
  • Rabies
  • 4DX Heartworm Test
  • Fecal Test and Treatment (if needed)
  • Microchip implant (for id purposes)
  • Any treatment deemed necessary by our vet

For Beagle Pups:

  • Shots, until time of adoption
  • Deworming, until time of adoption
  • Spay/neuter, at 8 to 12 weeks *
  • Microchip implant (for id purposes)

As you can see, our adoption fee covers a number of costs. Your dog will be covered for all the necessary inoculations for the first year. We will send you copies of all paperwork related to any service provided to your beagle.

* Puppies that cannot be spay/neutered at 8-12 weeks may have the procedure done by one of our authorized veterinarians at an appropriate age or you may elect to use your own vet (at your own expense). Puppies will have all shots/treatments suitable for their age.

The $300 and $275 adoption fee also includes a $40 deposit, refundable upon completion of an obedience course within one year of adoption. Simply send a copy of your contract and a copy of the diploma/certificate and BREW Midwest will send you a check for $40.

We believe very strongly that obedience training is KEY to a successful adoption and we encourage all of our adopters -- even the ones who consider themselves to be dog-experienced -- to take their rescued beagles to an obedience class. Taking one class can:

  1. Help you bond with your beagle;
  2. Teach him (and you) basic commands;
  3. Instill a sense of confidence in a shy dog or teach a dominant beagle that you're the boss, not her.

We recommend positive reinforcement as the best training method for beagles. Most Petco and PetSmart stores offer these classes. Clicker training has also been successful with beagles.
