A monetary donation is appreciated because it enables us to pay release fees for beagles in pounds which is one of our biggest ongoing financial commitments. In Victoria beagles are not given to rescue groups for free. By law each dog that enters a pound/shelter must spend 8 days waiting for their owner to reclaim them; if not reclaimed they are then tested for suitability to be released into rescue or adoption pens. Under Victorian law no animal can leave a shelter unless they are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped, all of which the pound performs and we (rescue groups) pay for.

We also assist people whose circumstances have changed and can no longer look after their beagle. Many of these beagles also need all their vet work done before we can rehome them.

Other ongoing costs associated with beagles that come into care are heartworm testing and treatment, flea and worming treatments, checkups, booster vaccinations and other on going medical issues, emergency vet visits, food, transport and bedding to name a few. Every beagle that comes through BRV is desexed microchipped, vaccinated, flea, worm and heart worm treated.
Approximate costs associated with responsible rescue are detailed below:

• Desexing depending on size and age - $150 - $300
• Vaccinations - $30
• Microchipping - $25
• Flea/Worm and Heart Worm Control: - $35 (approx.) per month plus heart worm test ($35 approx)
These costs don't include food, emergency medical care, transport etc.

Every donation made makes it possible for us to continue to help and rehome beagles of good nature and temperament who have sadly ended up in the pound system, generally through no fault of their own.


BRV is currently looking for families / couples / individuals who would like to assist us by becoming involved in our foster care program.  

All our beagles are temperament tested, desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm, flea and worm treated prior to going into foster care.

Each beagle comes with a starter pack of food, lead, collar, bowl and bedding (when available).   

BRV will cover the cost of any medical treatment required to the foster beagle whilst that beagle is in care. Please note that a representative of BRV must be notified immediately in the case of an accident.  

BRV is available 24/7 to assist you with any questions and to offer support should you require it. We also have trainers and behaviourists available to assist us should the need arise.

BRV endeavours to match each beagle with a like-minded foster carer. 

If you are interested in assisting us as a foster carer, please call Tam on 0409 535 930 or email
