Six beagles going home with adoptive families

Posted: Updated:

ENCINITAS (CNS) - The first six beagle puppies out of 35 brought in last week to the Rancho Coastal Humane Society are scheduled to go home with their adoptive families Wednesday.

The puppies were selected by their families last week, but they couldn't go home until they were spayed and neutered, Humane Society spokesman John Van Zante said.

The beagles were handed over to an East County dog rescue group last week by an unidentified woman who was overwhelmed by their numbers, and they were delivered to the Humane Society. Another five canines were given to a pug rescue organization.

Van Zante said four more puppies, and adult beagles without puppies, are also available for adoption.

The mothers of the youngest puppies will be available for people to select, but they won't be able to go home until their puppies are weaned -- in about five or six weeks. Still other adult dogs are pregnant, and they won't be available for about two months, he said.

He said the RCHS is accepting donations to help cover the cost of the Beagles' care and medical treatment. Some have ear infections and a few adults need some dental care.

Online adoption applications are available at www.sdpets.org.
