Tall Tails Beagle Rescue is a 501c3 non profit that works to find homes for unwanted
Beagles, Beagle mixes and occasionally deserving pups of other breeds that are in
need of rescuing (we call them "honorary Beagles!)
The rescue was founded by Chris Abbe in 2005. Chris began rescuing beagles back in
2000 with Nittany Beagle Rescue in Lemont, Pennsylvania following the tragic loss
of his own beloved beagle. After years of working with other rescue groups, he relocated
to southern Maine in 2005 and founded Tall Tails Beagle Rescue.
Beagles are a member of the scent hound group. They vary between 13 and 15 inches
at the shoulder and usually weigh between 20 and 30 pounds. They possess a short
coat and are easily groomed. Beagles often live to 15 years.
Our rescue dogs have all been examined by a veterinarian, brought up to date on their
shots, spayed or neutered and have had their temperament checked.
