Houston Beagle and Hound Rescue, Inc. (HBHR) is a non-profit 501-(c)-3, all-volunteer organization dedicated to beagle and hound rescue. We are a small group of volunteers who foster dogs in our homes. There is no shelter facility. We provide placement assistance to shelters and individuals who need to find homes for hounds which, for various reasons, have become stray or homeless.
HBHR is incorporated in the state of Texas and our federal EIN number is 75-3113421.

Most of our animals come from high-kill animal control facilities where they were scheduled to be euthanized. Our goal is finding homes for the dogs with families who want to continue our mission of giving the neglected dogs a second chance. We want to place the dogs with adopters who come to us because they are interested in doing their own part in giving the rescued dogs a better life and a second chance.

Our long-term goal is to educate the public regarding the tragic pet over-population problem in the U.S and around the world so that rescue will one day no longer be needed.
