Some of our Arizona Beagle Rescue fosters are on "medical leave". Meaning they cannot be put up for adoption until their medical conditions are given proper attention. It takes medication, surgery, physical therapy and sometimes, a long retraining and recovery time before they can be medically cleared and available for adoption.
The cost of some of the medications and surgeries can be extensive and at times, AZBR does not have enough funds to cover the charges right away.
This is where we need YOUR help! Your donation helps us fill in the medical gaps where and when needed. It also helps us raise the funds needed ahead for non-life threatening treatments.

Thank you for your contribution and generous heart.

Major Lewis needs $2,640 to cover the costs of his tail surgery and to improve his overall health.
Major Lewis was found wandering the busy, scary streets of Phoenix, Arizona. He was severely overweight, limping, and had a big mass at the base of his tail. He found his way to Arizona Beagle Rescue, and the quest to get Major Lewis healthy began. Major Lewis needed to lose about half his body weight to become a healthy dog again, surgery to remove his tail mass, and both his knees have torn ACL's and will most likely need surgical repair. He has already lost 30 pounds due to his thyroid medication, and underwent surgery to remove the mass on his tail. His veterinarian will have to reevaluate his knees to see if they have improved since the weight loss to determine the proper treatment. Major Lewis's prognosis is excellent and once he heals he will have many years of happiness ahead of him in a forever and loving home!
I'm Duke, and I'm looking for a new home to share with my sister, Belle J! We are both beagles who lost our home when our family had allergies that couldn't be treated. So, the nice people at AZBR are helping us to find a home.
Here's what my foster mom has to say about me: Duke certainly lives up to his name: he has a regal air about him. He won't "lower" himself to begging but he will certainly let you know he is ready and waiting for you to pet him. He does love having his ears rubbed and will close his eyes and lean into it. He doesn't seek out attention as much as other dogs though.
Duke is on a heartworm treatment plan and cannot be fully adopted until treatment has been completed. However, Duke is available to meet and be fostered by his new potential adopters until treatment is complete. AZBR would cover the cost of treatment. Once Duke has finished his heartworm treatment plan, he and Belle would be fully adoptable as a bonded pair!
