Helping Hounds Dog Rescue gives dogs a new 'leash' on life

Seven even-tempered, gentle beagles were destined for certain death until fate intervened on a cold January night. Thus was born Helping Hounds Dog Rescue. With the assistance of Leah Pekarsky at The Dog Gone Inn Doggie Day Care in Manlius, these dogs and dozens of other four-legged friends have journeyed north, all with new "leashes" on life.

Puppies are cute, but they eventually grow up. Helping Hounds knows the wonderful qualities of older dogs. They are generally housebroken (or at least crate-trained). While still full of life, they are less mischievous and better behaved. They are eager to please.

The group's mission is to take unwanted, neglected, abused, stray or homeless dogs and provide them with emotional, medical, behavioral and physical support so they can be adopted into loving permanent homes.

Helping Hounds Dog Rescue is dedicated to giving beagles and their hound cousins new beginnings, because second hand doesn't mean second best.

More than 200 dogs have been rescued through Helping Hounds.

Helping Hounds Dog Rescue Inc. is a state not-for-profit corporation. If you would like to adopt, foster, volunteer or donate, go to HoundsRescue.com
