I bring Duffy in to be taken care of and I like it when Duffy grabs me by the bottom of my pants rushing me in Beagles and buddies. He loves it here. Thank you for your great care!

I got my first dog at a pet shop, not knowing any better. I came to Beagles & Buddies with a neighbor and was informed greatly just how big of a difference there was between buying and adopting. I am grateful for this facility, they helped me find my newest family member. :)

We adopted a 10 week old Beagle from Beagles and Buddies for $750. We were very excited to have this beautiful dog join our family. Unfortunately the next day we had to take our puppy to the vet because he was not feeling well. He would

My wife had washed our dog and was washer her collar and our dog managed to get out. We made daily trips to the local shelters and checked the lists of dogs in shelters outside our area. My wife went to Beagles and Buddies with the hope

On June 3, 2010 around mid-day, a locked van filled with 18 dogs packed in plastic airline crates was discovered on a South El Monte street. When Animal Control agents from SEACCA took the temperature inside the van, it was 100 degrees. Those dogs had been in that heat for at least 2 hours.

The dogs in the van belong to Beagles and Buddies Rescue. They were most likely in the van in order to evade an inspection of the Beagles and Buddies Rescue kennels, which routinely has 3 - 4 times the number of dogs they are permitted to keep (3 - 4 times the number they have the resources to care for). Hiding dogs in vehicles (and inside private residences, and their groomer) is a common practice whenever Beagles and Buddies anticipates an inspection.

Anyone who would stack dogs inside a hot van on a June day for whatever reason is more concerned about their own agenda than they are animal welfare. Adopting dogs from here would be the best thing you could do for those dogs. Unfortunately, it will also enable the hoarding going on at Beagles and Buddies to continue. If you visit Beagles and Buddies and witness unclean or unsafe conditions, REPORT IT. If LA County Animal Control gets enough reports they will be forced to take action. THAT is the best thing you can do for all the dogs unfortunate enough to find themselves under Beagles & Buddies control

Beagles & Buddies Facts:
1) June 3, 2010, a locked van was found in South El Monte with 18 dogs crammed into airline kennels. Dogs had been inside at least 2 hours when SEACCA (animal control) responded to an anonymous tip. They tested the air temperature inside the van and it was 100 degrees. SEACCA removed the dogs and took them to their shelter in Downey.

An investigation revealed the van and dogs belong to Beagles & Buddies Rescue of El Monte. On many occasions volunteers and employees have witnessed the "Director" of Beagles & Buddies ordering dogs to be placed in vans whenever an inspection was scheduled because Beagles & Buddies regularly has over 100 dogs at one time. They're only permitted to have 40. They only have the staff for half that.

18 dogs in a hot van on a June day. Does this sound like "rescue" to you, or like hoarding?

2) Beagles & Buddies advertises that they are a "no-kill sanctuary." This is very appealing to people who donate money. Several times a year Beagles & Buddies takes multiple dogs to be euthanized to make room for more dogs. The dogs sent to be killed are not necessarily sick dogs, either. Many people witnessed this happening at the Pasadena Humane Society. Since they were called out in the press for this, they've used private vets.

Beagles and Buddies is not "no kill" they are "selective kill." The dogs that won't get $700 in adoption fees only get to live there for so long. Eventually they will be killed by lethal injection at the "Director's" discretion.

3) Beagles & Buddies non-profit status with the State of California is "suspended." They continue to solicit donations.

4) Monetary donations to Beagles & Buddies pay for the food, the housing, the clothing, the entertainment, the automobile, the gas, etc., of their "Director."

I hope after this latest incident with the dogs in the van it has become abundantly clear to everyone that there is a problem at Beagles & Buddies. The organization is rotten at the top. There are many wonderful, selfless volunteers doing all they can for the dogs, but they are unable to do anything about the corruption and hoarding. It's time for a change of guard at Beagles & Buddies. For the dogs' sake.

Pros: They finally got caught red handed.

Cons: Dogs are sick, have behavior problems, run by a hoarder

Who on earth would have anything negative to say about this wonderful place? Ms. Kramer and her staff are loving, caring individuals who give their all every day for dogs that people neglected or abandoned. Each dog is taken for a walk daily and has opportunities to socialize with people and other dogs. We have adopted several dogs here over the years. Each one has been a delight for our family.

This place is awesome! They have all breeds of dogs coming IN and OUT for ADOPTION. They charge higher prices to cover their older dogs. this is A NON-PROFIT organization so they have to depend on their donations of money,blankets,cars,towels,dog toys and other stuff the wish list is at the website. world wide web dot beaglesandbuddies dot com. they adopt OUT elderly dogs. Please visit! and see for yourself!

Pros: Lots of dogs

Cons: Not enough volunteers

The City of El Monte has been holding hearings about the horrible conditions at Beagles and Buddies for at least the last 2 years.
Connie Kramer, the woman who controls the day-to-day operations and lives off the donations and adoption fees, is a hoarder. There's no other way to put it. Many, many volunteers have confronted her about the fact that she has at least 100 more dogs at any given time than she has the resources to properly care for. There are dogs at "Questover" and "Red Cloud" that have lived on that property without ever leaving their concrete jails for YEARS.
Yes, you would be doing the best thing in the world to get a dog out of there, but Kramer will only get 4 more to replace it.
If you want to do something, go and tour the facility and then then complain to the LA County Animal Control and City of El Monte about the hoarding going on there, and the suffering of hundreds of animals in the care of a mentally unstable woman.
As long as Beagles and Buddies is run by Connie Kramer it will be the source of horrific suffering by the animals who aren't cute or desirable enough for Kramer to sell (yes, sell!!!) for $700 or more.

Pros: City is shutting them down

Cons: Dirty, adopts sick dogs, keeps animals in cages for years.

Beagles and Buddies is a great place to get a dog! The dogs there are well cared for and there is much effort to have the dogs socialize so they are friendly with other dogs and people. I got 2 dogs there 7 years ago. They were both Beagles, but they have lots of other types there too. The male Beagle (Wally), I got has been the joy of my life, but at 17&1/2, he died a year ago last December. Last January, I took my other Beagle (Bonnie), who then was 8 years old, up to Beagles and Buddies, to look for another companion for her and me. Together we picked out Buddy (who was 15 years old), and his "cell mate" Maggie (who was 8). Both dogs are absolutely wonderful and fit in well with Bonnie who is a wonderful dog too! I am so happy that a place like Beagles and Buddies exists so these animals can be saved. When I got the two dogs, I was given a deal of $150 for both, as they had some medical needs. I felt that was too cheap, as the rescue needs money to take care of all the dogs they save. I gave them $200 each, and was happy to provide the extra money! Taking care of older dogs is not cheap. They need to have their teeth cleaned on a regular basis (once a year is recommended). The money that you give Beagles and Buddies for a dog is not to pay for the dog, but to help take care of all the other dogs still there. I am hoping Buddy will live at least for two more years. He is doing well now and very happy in my house. I have spent more on his medical care than on his original cost, as I have spent over $3,000 on his medical needs. He is a great joy to my life, and his medical issues have been resolved, for now. Beagles and Buddies is a great place to get a dog, and when I am ready to get another dog, I will be going to Beagles and Buddies with my family (and my dogs), to pick out another one!

I also applaud what this rescue does. They do charge high prices for the pets, so they could cover the cost for dogs that stay there forever (literally). No pets get put down here, and some actually have health conditions. They have ALOT of animals here, and ALOT of beagles. But they have other breeds and mixed breeds too. I adopted my dog there, and couldn't be happier. I witnessed them do a child test on a dog who was potentially being adopted by a family with small children, so they try to match the pet to the family. The place does smell like urine, which is expected, especially since some of their dogs get to rome free in the court yard.

Their cause is great and all of the people mean well. They overcharge for rescues (more than a puppy from the pet store would cost!). The premises is dirty and stinky, but what can you expect from that many dogs. I like the website and got two dogs from there.

PROS: Website is great, a lot of doggies to choose from
CONS: Stinky location and overpriced dogs.
