Sunshine Beagles is focused on making positive impacts within our community, both local and beyond. We seek to help animals in need, and raise awareness on animal welfare issues.
Our efforts are centered on two crucial practices:
Adopt Don't Shop & Cruelty-Free.
Adopt Don't Shop
There are thousands of pups across South Florida needing homes. Shelters are often filled to capacity with loving, adoptable animals. Despite the overwhelming number of pups of all kinds available, sadly only around 23% of dogs are adopted from shelters.
We strongly advocate for adoption for those seeking to bring another dog into their family, instead of purchasing from a shop or breeder.
Please help us fight animal homelessness by choosing to adopt!
We have beagles available for adoption who will give the right family lots of love - check out our list of available pups. Even if you don't see the kind of dog you're looking for, we could receive your perfect pup very soon! Please fill out an application to be on our waitlist, and we'll be in touch once we find a potential match.

Beagles make wonderful family members; they're friendly, docile, loyal, and generally healthy, but for these same great qualities, they are the number one breed of choice for animal testing. They make up a staggering 96% of the dogs tested on annually. Through these tests, they are tortured, burned with chemicals, horrifically injured, maimed, blinded, paralyzed, and indescribably emotionally scarred.
In order to fight the inhumanities of animal testing, we fervently promote using only cruelty-free products. Many of the cosmetics, household cleaners, hygienic products, and even some school supplies that you currently use could be tested on beagles. To check the cruelty-free status of a product, you can use the free resource, Beagle Freedom Project's Cruelty-Cutter App:

In consideration of our goals and values, our group does not allow any breeding arrangements to be done through our various platforms. Breeding practices not only contradict our animal welfare efforts, but are also highly regulated by law, requiring proper licensing. For the integrity and safety of our community, we ask that our members do not attempt or engage in any breeding discussions within our network.
We also ask that anyone interested in more pups consider adopting! There are many beagles (and other pups!) in need of loving homes. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with an inquiry about adoptable pups.
