About

Beagle Rescue, Education and Welfare of Northern Virginia, Inc. (BREW) was founded in February 1999.

BREW is dedicated to rescuing and re-homing beagles. The main focus is beagles in shelters that are faced with imminent euthanasia. BREW works with shelters and animal control facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic area. We adopt beagles to local families and have also placed beagles in homes in VA, MD, WV, DC, PA, DE, NY, NJ, and MA to name a few.

In addition to our rescue efforts, BREW is dedicated to increasing public awareness of pet overpopulation and encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. Towards that end, no beagle over six months of age is adopted from BREW without being spayed or neutered. BREW also works to alert people about the disadvantages of purchasing pets from a “pet store.”
