Midwest BREW's volunteer program is the lifeline for our organization. We are always in need of volunteers in different capacities that are willing to share their time, energy and expertise to help beagles in need. Listed below are descriptions of various volunteer opportunities:

Foster Homes – Urgent Need

Provide temporary care for adult beagles, puppies and special need beagles while Midwest BREW works with adoption applicants to find a new, permanent home. Midwest BREW is looking for a special person/family with a strong commitment, patience and time. Duration of stay varies depending on the adoption process. An interview and home visit by another Midwest BREW volunteer will be conducted before a foster beagle can be sent to a new foster home. See our fostering page for more information.



Midwest BREW takes in beagles throughout Western Pennsylvania, Ohio , Michigan , Indiana , Illinois and Wisconsin from shelters, animal control officers and owner surrenders. Beagles need to be transported from one location to another. Sometimes these transports involve many volunteers and many legs of a trip. Sometimes overnight stays are needed. Time, patience and a vehicle are a must for transportation of the beagles.


Home Visits

A Midwest BREW volunteer screens each prospective adopter's home and new foster home by means of a home visit. The home visit consists of a trip to the prospective adopter's home or foster home and an interview with the family. After the home visit is completed, the volunteer relays his/her information to the Adoption Counselor by completing and emailing our home visit form.


Fund Raising/Special Events

Assist with community awareness and fund raising events such as our monthly adoption events, booth coverage for Pet Expo’s and Community Events, Beaglefest, Carson’s Community Days and help write and publish Midwest BREW's newsletter.


Clerical Duties

Assist in writing thank you notes, mailings, stuffing envelopes, data entering, etc.


Please complete our volunteer application and one of our volunteers will contact you. We hope your volunteer experience with Midwest BREW will be a rewarding one and we thank you for your interest in helping the beagles!
