Tall Tails

Beagle Rescue

We are a small, volunteer-run rescue and are currently operating at a very limited capacity due to the pandemic/travel restrictions. 

About Us

Tall Tails Beagle Rescue is a 501c3 non profit that works to find homes for unwanted Beagles and Beagle mixes. We take Beagles from other states as well as local surrenders if we are able.


The rescue was founded by Chris Abbe in 2005. Chris began rescuing beagles back in 2000 with Nittany Beagle Rescue in Lemont, Pennsylvania following the tragic loss of his own beloved beagle. After years of working with other rescue groups, he relocated to southern Maine in 2005 and founded Tall Tails Beagle Rescue.
