BREW was founded in February 1999 by Laura Charles Johnson, in response to the growing number of Beagles in the Washington, D.C. area who need help.

Laura had worked in rescue for more than a year before founding BREW. As Laura became more involved in rescue, she learned most breeds were represented by local rescue groups; beagles were the exception. BREW became incorporated in February 1999, and received its non-profit determination from the IRS in April 2000.

BREW is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming Beagles. The main focus is Beagles in shelters who are faced with imminent extermination. BREW works with shelters and animal control facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic area. It adopts Beagles to local families and has also placed beagles in homes in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, to name a few.

In addition to its rescue efforts, BREW is dedicated to increasing public awareness of pet overpopulation and encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. Towards that end, no Beagle over six months of age is adopted from BREW without being spayed or neutered. BREW also works to alert people about the disadvantages of purchasing pets from a pet store.

BREW’s headquarters are located in the Washington/Baltimore area (northern Virginia); it has an affiliate that serves the Midwest region.
