The Seattle Beagle Rescue is putting their paws into a new adventure – rescuing Beagles from Korea!  In about 5-6 weeks we hope to be able to bring 11 beagles, ages 1-6, from a small rescue in Korea to the Seattle area, but we can’t do it alone.  We desperately need your help through monetary donations to save these Beagles!  We don't have a lot of information at this time on each individual Beagle, however, we do know that they are coming from a puppy mill which bred puppies for sale to research labs. The owner of the puppy mill has a terminal illness and is getting rid of all the dogs (not just Beagles by the way) by selling them, unfortunately, for the Korean meat market. We have been extremely lucky to work with this Korean rescue who now has custody of these lucky Beagles.  The Beagles are now awaiting travel to the United States, hopefully arriving around mid-May.

Each Beagle will be vaccinated for rabies prior to travel, per airline regulations. They will all be tested for heartworm as well and we know that many of these Beagles will test positive due to being infected by a bite from an infected mosquito.  This is a curable condition, but it is expensive and very time consuming for each dog (potentially $4000 per dog and 7 months of treatment).  Each Beagle will need a “plane” ticket to get here and that can be up to $785 per dog for the ticket, a travel crate, a required overnight quarantine and a veterinarian-issued health certificate.  Once these adorable Beagles arrive, they will then get a full medical by our veterinarian and further treatment for any other medical issues, such as fleas, tooth problems, skin issues, and even eye issues due to their living conditions and lack of regular medical care. And of course, as a breeding dog, they will all be spayed or neutered once they arrive.  All of this will cost money, and some Beagles will require more than others.  We WILL make this happen for these lonely dogs, but your help is so greatly needed and appreciated.

These Beagles have lived in wire cages all their lives with barely enough room for two.  They have had no exposure to positive human contact, regular health and medical care, or even running on grass or rolling in the dirt.  They haven’t played with toys, run around together as a loud rambunctious Beagle pack or slept on a soft bed at night.  We know that helping these Beagles will take much time, coordination, patience, love and lots of money, but that is what we do, because we love Beagles (and dogs in general) and know that each dog deserves a loving home to live out their lives.  Will you help us?  Please…for each Beagle is awaiting a start to a new, happy and safe life.

We know that transportation is at least $500 per pup on Korean airlines. Little red is hanging on and eating with now neurological signs of distemper. Brown had low antibodies, so although no symptoms, is being treated as distemper and isolated. Green had corona, but recovered and is back with the other beagles. We know seven of the eleven are heartworm positive and cannot be treated till in the USA

We have found out that little red has distemper as well as heart-worm positive and another has corona and also heart-worm positive. They are currently under the care of the vet and we are hoping they pull through. Both of these could have been prevented had these pups had proper vet care and vaccinations.
We will keep you posted as we receive more information.

As we are still do not know total medical and transportation costs, we are trying to fund-raise for worst case. We are 501c3 so these donations are tax deductible.
