|Midwest Beagle Rescue, Education & Welfare|
Midwest Beagle Rescue, Education and Welfare, Inc is a 501(c)3 non profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to rescuing beagles from high-kill shelters. We adopt beagles to families within Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, western Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and have also placed beagles into loving homes in Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri. If you adopted from us as BREW Midwest, rest assured we are still here for you and will honor all contracts.
In light of the Canine Influenza that has hit the Chicago area, we have made the decision to POSTPONE Beaglefest. We are working with the Park Ridge Park District to secure a date later in the summer. We will make another announcement here as soon as we have a new date and will also update our Beaglesfest page. Please note, our Bucks for Beagles Raffle will be drawn on May 16, 2015 as originally scheduled and the winners will be notified.
We apologize for the inconveniece however, even though this is our biggest fundraiser of the year, we believe that the health of everyone's dogs is more important and it is best to not put any dogs at risk.
Sophie says she hopes we will see everyone on our new date!
Help Wanted: Foster Homes Desperately Needed
We receive pleas on a daily basis from shelters, animals control officers, vet offices and the general public asking for assistance in placing beagles in need. Most of the time, the request for assistance is the dogs last chance…and if we can’t help because of our lack of foster homes, the beagle usually find his/her life on the line. Unfortunately, we NEVER have enough foster homes. Please consider becoming a Midwest BREW foster home and experience the joy of saving one beagle at a time in your own home. What a wonderful way to teach your family and friends about giving back and making the world a better place. The average stay for a beagle in a foster home is two to three months. Some beagles take longer to place and some are placed shortly after arriving at their foster home. These sweet little hounds are depending on you to help them in their time of need…will you be there to provide a temporary home, love, and guidance until their “FOREVER” home is found?
Midwest BREW does not operate a kennel or shelter, so foster homes are critically important to the work we do. Click on the "Fostering" tab at the top of the page to learn more or email us at: email@example.com!

Senior Beagles deserve a great home too!
Please consider adopting one of our senior beagles!
Midwest BREW is proud and excited about our senior beagle program: Amazing Assortment of Retired Beagles or AARB for short. Our AARB program includes a reduced adoption fee for our available beagles that are age 8 and older and a newly instituted AARB Fund which we will use exclusively to help our senior beagles.
More information about our AARB program and our new AARB Fund, can be found by clicking the "AARB Senior" link located in the gray bar at the top of each page or click here for a direct link.
We have several special events coming in the next few months, in addition to our regular monthly adoption events.
UPDATE: Due to the canine influenza outbreak, we are taking a better safe than sorry approach and are cancelling our Gurnee Illinois and Merrillville, IN adoption events for this weekend, April 18 and 19, 2015. Please come and visit us in May!
