Shy and Tina: Please adopt these beagles!

June 12, 2013 UPDATE: Shy the beagle was adopted over the weekend! Tina is still available for adoption at the Owensboro Humane Society in Kentucky.

First, an update -- 50 cats and dogs were adopted from Pasco County Animal Shelter in Florida over the weekend! While that's definitely good news, they need more help. Pets are still under the threat of euthanization. Consider checking out the shelter if you are looking for a pet. Their website is here.

If you are looking specifically for beagles though, I have two I want to put on your radar. If I could take them both, or even one of them, I would, but I can't. We need to find them homes.

This is Shy:

This is Tina:
Shy is 3 or 4 years old, Tina is 2 to 3 years old. They're both good with kids and other dogs, possibly cats too.

They both live at Owensboro Humane Society in Kentucky. The good news for Shy and Tina is the shelter is no-kill. The bad news is, it's starting to become their forever home.

In Kentucky, Tennessee, and into Indiana and Ohio, beagles fill the shelters. Why? Many people hunt with beagles. If the dog does not perform the way the hunter wishes, sometimes the hunter gets rid of them.

Bunny Allen, who works with Owensboro Humane Society and runs Carma Poodale.com, says it is very hard to get beagles adopted up there because there are so many, people have lots to choose from! It's sort of like pit bulls and labs in Florida (and other places, from what I understand).

This means we need to cast a wider net. I want to see these two adopted. They are too cute to be stuck in a shelter. They need loving homes and families.

Bunny says both Shy and Tina have sponsors, so their adoption fees are cheap: $40 to adopt Shy and $50 to adopt Tina. It includes spaying, meds and vaccines. PLUS Bunny says she will give six months of food to the adopter.

Please help me find homes for Shy and Tina. Tweet them out, share them on Facebook, on Pinterest, on Google+, email them to friends, whatever it takes. Here is the Petfinder information for each:

Owensboro Humane Society has lots of dogs and cats available for adoption, by the way. Here is their website.

By the way, if you don't live near Owensboro, it is always possible to find a way to get a pet to you. There are many groups now that help transport pets, even across state lines.


  1. They are both adorable - hoping the best for them!

  2. They are so cute and I love Beagles :-) Sharing.

  3. Beagles are awesome! Hope they find a home real soon. Thanks for joining the blog hop.

  4. Lulu, My dearest sweetest friend, I can not thank you enough for featuring my fur friends. With all the beagles that are in shelters right now , you chose my fur friends. Thank you from the bottom of my paws to the top of my floof for this.
    If anyone wants more information about Shy or Tina, wants to see more video, ask more questions please feel free to have them contact me or ma. We can be reached at Carmapoodale@gmail.com or Bunny@owensborohumane.org.
    I will also add that if they are adopted to a approved home that I , Carma Poodale, will donate 6 mths of food and treats to the adopter and ma will pay half of the adoption fee. Ma and I will also help with the transport to their new home if the adopter can't come to us. These little girls don't deserve to be in a shelter. They deserve a family such as you and I have.
    Thank you again. Many poodle hugs and love to you

    1. Hey Carma and Bunny -- Surprise!
