Triangle Beagle Rescue is a non-profit organization and operates solely on our adoption fees and donations that we receive. Some dogs cost less than the adoption fee, but others cost thousands for expensive surgeries and procedures.


If you cannot afford to pay the adoption fee in full, please reconsider the idea of adopting a pet. Pets are a lifetime commitment and they need you to survive. Emergency vet visits are inevitable at some point in time, and they are not cheap. If you cannot assume full financial responsibility you may want to reconsider owning a dog. A great way to get the benefits of dog ownership and companionship without the financial responsibility is through our Foster Program.
