Due to heavy rains in the forecast, the 2018 Beagle Bash has been postponed until Sunday, September 30.  The time remains from 11:00 - 3:00 at Countryside Kennels in Owings, MD.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but hope you'll still be able to join us!  All those raffle baskets will keep for another week!


 Adoption Donation Increase
While wishing it weren't true, BRSM must now request a minimum $400 donation for all new adoptions. But, if you're already in the queue, don't panic! Most adopter profiles received before August 13 will still be eligible for the $300 previously published. In the meantime, we hope you – our supporters, adopters, and advocates will understand why this is necessary.

Basic vetting for beagles transferred from shelters includes an intake exam, vaccines, deworming, blood work, and neuter/spay; usually some antibiotics for a tick-borne illness or two; and possibly some boarding while awaiting spay/neuter...oh and maybe a couple of x-rays for good measure. It adds up quickly, and oddly enough this is what we HOPE FOR when we take in new dogs.

Because BRSM is committed to rescuing beagles of any age and with any health condition, nearly 70% of our beagles need additional, more involved procedures such as treatment for heartworm disease, severe injuries requiring orthopedic surgery, vision problems – all costing far more than any adoption donation BRSM has ever requested!

BRSM is a 100% volunteer-run organization, so we REALLY DON'T CARE about the money...except that we NEED the money to continue our good work. This decision has been a long time in the making, and we thank you for your support; we couldn't operate this rescue without the beagle-loving community behind us!!


Join us on Saturday, September 15 for an adoption event at Bark! Pawsitive Petfood in Annapolis, MD. We'll be there from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.  The address is 2101 Somerville Rd.  (Same shopping center as Mission BBQ)  Come on out and join us!

 Don't forget shoppers!  If you're ordering from Amazon, this is a quick and easy way to donate without actually writing a check!
As a completely publicly funded rescue, we are always scraping the bottom of the barrel to come up with money for vetting.  we have an absolutely painless way for you to donate to the care and vetting of our dogs AND IT WON'T COST YOU A DIME!!!!!  While we'd PREFER for you to enter the Amazon site through the portal below (we earn WAY more money that way), Amazon has launched AmazonSmile:  (http://smile.amazon.com/)  It's easier to remember "Smile.Amazon" than it is to remember to enter their site via an icon on ours.  Secondly, you can select your preferred charity (which is Beagle Rescue of Southern Maryland, of course!) and it is SAVED.  Once you've selected BRSM as  your preferred charity, every time you go back to Amazon Smile (and we suggest that you bookmark it) you're already there.  Amazon will donate .05% of every purchase to BRSM.  (Although .05% is better than 0%, we'd still prefer you to use the portal below, as we then earn between 4 - 6 % AWESOME!!
Meanwhile, the iGive icon below will work to get you into such sites as Macy's, Target, Lowes,  etc.  Through this icon, those companies will also donate a portion of your purchase to us.  You're going to be shopping, anyway.  It couldn't be any easier to donate to a worthy cause!  Please remember us as you do your shopping!                                        



Dog Day Care and Boarding Kennel in Reston, VA
Lately there has been a plethora of good information for pet owners circulating on Facebook. 
If you have questions concerning HOUSE TRAINING, the following link may prove helpful.  We are sometimes questioned on the feasibility of housetraining an older dog, the presumption being that they are just too set in their ways.  This just isn't so.  Please have a read: http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2010/05/12/four-proved-principles-of-housebreaking-a-dog-of-any-age.aspx?x_cid=20150524_ranart_four-proved-principles-of-housebreaking-a-dog-of-any-age_facebookpets 
One trait of beagledom that can be panic inducing to the uninitiated is the REVERSE SNEEZE.  We've had adopters take their snorting and gasping beagles straight to the vet after a particularly lengthy episode, only to have the vet laugh and explain that this is a completely normal phenomenon.  "That will be $75.00, thank you very much."  You can read about it here: http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/06/22/pets-seasonal-allergies.aspx?x_cid=20150526_ranart_pets-seasonal-allergies_facebookpets
Does your dog suffer withSEASONAL ALLERGIES?  If Snoopy's scratching and wheezing keeps you up night, the chances are pretty good.  You'll find this article helpful:  http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2012/06/22/pets-seasonal-allergies.aspx?x_cid=20150526_ranart_pets-seasonal-allergies_facebookpets
