Beagles of New England States (B.O.N.E.S.) developed the Sensational Senior Beagles (SSB) program over a decade ago to ease concerns about adopting senior beagles. B.O.N.E.S. was founded in 2003 for the purpose of rescuing beagles and placing them in forever homes and is registered in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a nonprofit organization. Their mission is to rescue, rehome, spay/neuter and provide necessary medical care to beagles in need in the New England Area. They endeavor to improve the quality of life for beagles in New England through outreach and education programs. B.O.N.E.S. is an all-volunteer organization, comprised of dedicated people who want what is best for beagles in their area.
Funded in 2019
How we help:
The Grey Muzzle Organization grant will help B.O.N.E.S. increase public awareness about Sensational Senior Beagles (SSB) through a robust marketing campaign via print, broadcast, social and digital media, mass mailings and outreach events, resulting in more immediate placement of senior beagles into their forever homes and allowing B.O.N.E.S. to take in additional senior beagles needing homes—dogs just like Happy. Happy came into the SSB program as a severely neglected stray. His teeth were in such poor condition that he was passed over for adoption at a local animal shelter time and time again. B.O.N.E.S. took Happy into their program where he underwent dental surgery and had most of his teeth extracted. A facial growth was also removed and Happy went to recuperate at his foster home. The 15-year-old soon convinced his foster mom, who couldn’t resist his infectious personality, to formally adopt him. “He hopped on my couch as a foster and decided he was home,” she said. “He truly lives up to his name.”
