A Lump In the Throat, Tear in the Eye...

is what I get when I read the success stories of adopted pets.
Reading about the B.O.N.E.S. rescue/foster/adoption story of Lucy, I wish it could be the happy tales endings of every dog or cat waiting for the "forever home" of their own.

Lucy was the 500th Beagle adopted out to a forever home by BONES Beagle Rescue in a 2.5 year period as of Oct 2005...they have gone beyond that mark since! That is, Beagles Of New England States.
Dedicated volunteers have made such a success of this rescue group. But... they can never rest on their laurels. There is no rest as long as there are homeless animals in need.

Coming in October is the 3rd annual OCTOBER BEAGLE BASH that includes the wonderful BEAGLE OLYMPICS! It is the yearly adoption fest for BONES and, if you can judge by past pictures, a fabulous family day event.

You can visit the BONES site at for stories, pictures, Beagles available for adoption, and just a wonderful site to return to for updates on their good work!

Painted for BONES rescue are these items on Ebay: the above images is "BUDDY," a BONES Beagle...painting image copyrighted to Carol Chretien 2006.
