Lucy Hytha 4/20/2011 - 2/16/2024

Lucy rescued us in May of 2017 at the age of 6. She quickly let her new brother Macky know that there was a new sheriff in town. She also quickly stole our hearts and filled a void in our lives that we never knew existed.
In September of 2022 Lucy was diagnosed with bladder cancer. We were told her prognosis was 6-12 months. Our little fighter proved them wrong. This summer they found a spot on her spleen and we were told this was more serious and had a much worse prognosis of 3 months. We were blessed to more than double that time.
She loved going to Cape May and laying on the warm sandy beach with her brother Macky, steak dinners, duck treats, stealing couch space, day-long naps and barking at every delivery person like they were coming to rob us.
The pain in our hearts and the void left in our lives will be forever. This little girl brought more joy and happiness to our lives than we could have ever imagined. We were Lucy's 3rd family but we were so blessed to be her furever family. We miss her so much. Our lives will never be the same.
-Joe, Jean and Macky Hytha


Carrie Berry 2023


Carrie's adventure began in Alabama, and she came all the way to Philadelphia to find her forever home. She quickly won the hearts of everyone she met with her southern charms and her favorite things were treats, belly rubs and naps. She may have gone to the rainbow bridge but will always be in my heart.


Astra Jaycox 2023


Astra Jaycox of Brooklyn (2010-2023) was a loving family pup who had many favorite sunny spots in the backyard, a nose for treats and nuzzles, and an adventurous spirit, traveling across the countryside to romp in beaches and apple fields alike. Her big heart and sweetness will be remembered forever.


Callie Passaretti 2023


Callie was rescued November 2013 and crossed the bridge 8/9/2023. She gave me ten years of love, laughter and loyalty. Her favorite thing was walks through our neighborhood where all the neighbors knew her and gave her treats, even some who didn't own dogs! She will be missed more than words can say
-Kathy Passaretti
-Tim Calhoun and Jim DePaul


Molly Kintner 2023


Molly, aka Susie, jumped in Joe's lap 1-15-2012 and it was love at first sight. She was a sweet, good, loving girl and we miss her so much.
-Joe Eichhorn and Mary Kintner

Bradley Paciotti 2023


Bradley was the best !! He was well loved by my three kids, Chris Delia and Jack and my husband and I, as well as our other two rescue dogs Lilly and Rose, and also his good friend our cat Felicie. He was always happy and loved his treats and people. He will truly be missed. It was a blessing to have him in our lives.
-The Paciotti Family

Trixie Wigglebutt Almony 2023


The joy and laughter you brought to this world in your too small life can never be measured. You stayed by Gram to her last breath bringing her such comfort. Your all knowing eyes that can reach into the soul will be terribly missed. We will always love you.
-The Almony Family

-Teresa and John Brandinelli

Lenny 2023


We met our sweet Lenny at NJ Beaglefest in 2011 and for almost 12 years he brought only joy to our world. He is missed more than words can express, but we are so lucky that he picked us to love him.

In loving memory of dear, sweet Lenny, his spots and his awesome ears! We miss you, Lenny!

-Loved by Bill and Jill Stuart

Pepper Vo 2012-2023


Pepper lit up our lives in 2012 and passed away in February 2023 at the vibrant age of 12 years old. She had a big personality and was well-known in the neighborhood. Every dog was a friend and every human had a treat to give. Pepper was beyond loved.
-Sheena & John Vo

Max Grassi 2012-2021


Max was a good dog and had a short life due to his seizures. We all loved him from the first time we saw him, despite his energy. He loved playing with Merlot and his big yard. We still miss him every day but know he is with our Portergirl.
-Teresa, Ken, and Eric

Elliott Smith 2022


Elliott came into our lives on February 27, 2015. He was a stray in Brunswick, Virginia. The rescue worker noted on his intake sheet that Elliott is a "sweet beagle, he has no enemies." From that first observance of his personality, he lived up to those very words. We are forever thankful for him being such a big part of our lives. We miss him every day.
-The Smith Family

Bess 2010-2023


On 9/2/2011, Bess chose us. William was down on one knee and she bolted over. He was smitten. On the drive back to Brooklyn, Peanut became "Bess" - future subject of countless drawings and photographs. She was our first girl dog, famous for her pearls and a big sister to Winston. We were lucky to have been part of her life for most of her thirteen short years.
-Jeff Dreiblatt and William Walker
In Memory of Bess - her royal highness of beagleness.
-Susan Kneeland
-Fran Markover

Lucky Kulkani - 2022


Lucky was a sweet and playful boy; he was always springy and energetic. He was a loving and caring dog. He was always there for anyone if they were feeling down. He has left a huge imprint in our hearts and will always be remembered with love.
-The Kulkarni Family

Stanley Kramer - 2022


Loved by Laurie and Philip and mostly loved but sometimes only tolerated by Oliver Kramer. Twelve years wasn't long enough.
-Laurie and Philip Kramer
-The Newman Family
-Jeri and Toby Ryan

Champ Rutan - 2021


Champ was very special. This little character was a true beagle and brought us much joy, even when he tried to escape ( and did 4 times ) and got into everything.
- Mara and George Rutan

Eleanore Roecker - 2021

Eleanore In loving memory of treasured friend and volunteer of SOS Beagle Rescue, Eleanore would give anyone the shirt off her back if you asked, was never seen without her lipstick and loved her beagles with all her heart. Rest in Peace, our dear friend.

Millie Ryan - 2021


In Memory of Millie, our "Best Girl." She was our "heart" or "soul" dog. We communicated where we knew what she was thinking and she knew what we were thinking. She was very smart but she loved to play the part of a dumb blond; she was so silly in her younger days. Millie is going to be an extremely tough act to follow.
- Jeri and Toby Ryan

Jax Ryan - 2021


In memory of Jax, a very sweet and silly boy.
Loved and missed by Jeri and Toby Ryan and Miss Millie Moo

Woodrow Boucher - 2021


We adopted Toby Keith from from SOS in 2008. I found him on PetFinder and immediately loved his face. He immediately loved his dad, though, and they became best friends. He was renamed Woodrow on our car ride home. When his human siblings were born, he was a perfect family dog - gentle and patient and only stole a few toys.

He was with us for 13 amazing years, and we're overwhelmingly grateful to have had him in our lives - from dating to marriage to babies and now a busy young family, Woodrow was a very loved part of our lives and we will miss him terribly.
- The Boucher family

Clifford Konopacki - 2021


We were nervous and excited when we adopted Clifford on 1/5/2010. He was a tremendous dog, very attached to both Josie and myself. He had a puppy face his entire life. We have no human children, but Clifford filled that void wonderfully.
Loved by Joe and Josie Konopacki

Madison 2004-2021

Madison -->

We said a heartbreaking goodbye to our favorite girl in February. She was truly one of a kind. She lived nine lives, beating every illness that came her way. The joy she brought to our lives cannot be measured—she was loved beyond belief. She lived an incredible life and is missed every single day.
- Jill and Peter

Dolly Celia Foote - 2021


Adopted in 2010, Dolly was originally a Jersey girl but moved to NC 9 years ago and has had a wonderful life with lots of love. Her coat was so soft and her ears were like velvet. We adopted another hound 8 years ago, Maggie. Dolly and Maggie got along well although Dolly was the boss or Queen as I affectionately called her.
- Christine and Andy Celia Foote

Lady Bug Fogel - 2021


Lady Bug was a free spirit, full of mischief and love. Goodbye sweet baby girl. Run-run-run to your heart's content.
- Fred and Linda Fogel - Eiderson Dean

SweetPea Zahn - 2021


Pea left us to rest at the Rainbow Bridge on 2/22/21. Pea was very shy and barely made eye contact with us when adopted. With love and caring she gradually learned to trust and be loved. Beagles are known to be "determined" and she was until the day she left us. Over the years, when her health began to decline she would carry on with her routine, sniff the grounds outside and taught us to be strong when health is not good. There was so many things that we will miss about her. She was a spark of light and will continue to be in our thoughts everyday
- Abby and Larry Zahn

Duke McCormack - 2020


Duke was rescued from a Louisiana kill shelter and came north to us in NYC to become a fine, snow-appreciating Yank. He was a wonderful, gentle, occasionally obedient gentleman who loved other dogs and humans, and we treasured our 7 years with him. We loved him very much and miss him every day.
- Maura and John McCormack

Tig Saad - 2020


In memory of Tig Beloved pet of Alyson & John Saad
- Jamie Saad

Billie Holiday - 2020


Our girl, Billie Holiday, came to us through SOS NJ in 2013 after a really hard year in our lives. She always knew how to make us smile. We couldn't have found a better dog to share our adventures with. After being a city dog for 4 years, she spent 3 years on the road with us finding the all the best spots from NJ to Alaska to Baja Mexico. Her favorite thing to do was hiking and exploring with her people (and rolling in smelly things). We are utterly heartbroken and we miss her every day but we are so thankful for the time we had
- Andrew and Sarah Leone

Aldo Briones - 2020


We rescued Aldo when he was 7 weeks old from an abandoned home in Memphis. He was only 9 years old when he passed. One day he was fine and the next he was receiving a blood transfusion and had IMHA and it took him from us within 5 days of being diagnosed.
- Mark Briones

Rocky Stoever - 2020


We were lucky enough to have Rocky with us for 13 years. He was a great member of our family. We have some great memories of him. Even though he will be missed, those memories help so very much.
- Marlene Stoever

Levi Orlando - 2020


In loving memory of Levi (2001-2020)
A pure and gentle soul, to know him was to love him. As Edith Wharton said of her favorite dog, "we really communicated ... & no one had such wise things to say." We are so grateful he chose us. May we all learn from his example and live as happily, as well, and with as much love and dignity.
- Emily and Nels

Tanner Daly - 2020


We adopted Tanner when he was 10 months old from a local shelter. The first time we met him, he melted our hearts and we all knew he was going to be part of our family. He was our "Best Buddy" and we miss him.
- The Daly Family

Luna Guss - 2020


Adopted from SOS with Bugles in 2011, Luna was so incredibly loved and lovable. Anyone who met her said they've never met a friendlier dog. She will be forever missed, especially by Bugles, her bonded companion and sister.
Thank you so much for entrusting us with the care of these two precious pups. We were newlyweds when they came home with us. They have made our lives so full, and we couldn't imagine two better dogs to grow our family with.
- Lauren Guss

Jake Lienert - 2020


It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to one of our boys, Jake as he crosses that rainbow bridge today, June 3, 2020. Jake came down with cancer a few months back and lost the fight today. Jake came to us through fate. As we attended a "bark and wine" event at a kennel, Jake waddled up to my wife and laid his head in her lap. Around his neck was a scarf that read "Adopt Me." It took her a couple weeks of wearing me down, but we eventually adopted him.
Jake was a well known pain in the ass. He would often get into the trash, chase down every rabbit or other animal that would get into our yard, he would bark at 2am if he wanted to be under the blanket or go outside. But he was good with the kids and through all his quirks, we loved him. He is survived by his two brothers Charlie and Dexter. I know he is somewhere barking to get under a blanket. We will miss him.
- Mike, Melissa, Maverick, & Violet Lienert

Buddy Barrios - 2020


We had Buddy 12 wonderful years. He was such a special and smart beagle. We loved him so much. Thank you, SOS, for everything that you do and for bringing us such a wonderful companion.
- Ben & Rita

Sugar - 2020


SOS foster was on the mark in describing this dog as "very special." We adopted Pumpkin (renamed "Sugar") on those words and her soulful picture. Sugar's easygoing, peaceful manner, and slow rhythmic tail wagging set on "constant mode," could defuse any situation from rambunctious children to overbearing dogs. Truly a gentle soul, loved by all, missed so much.
- The Tottenham Family

Lieutenant Dan - 2020


Born to Parkway Cutie Pie and Tequila Sunrise, Ltnt Dan was fervently chosen by Brian, to whom he gave pure love and joy for more than 15 years. Ltnt loved the sand, chasing squirrels and running alongside his best friend, BK. He ate delicious meals from mom, walked for MS, played, danced and gave unconditional love to his forever family. The happiness he brought to those who loved him will always be remembered.

Mitzy Goldberg - 2018


In loving memory of my 'velcro' dog Mitzy who began her journey to the Rainbow Bridge Saturday morning. She came to me as a foster via rescue in Miami-Dade, FL. Within 2 days I knew she wasn't leaving. I can't explain the joy she gave us for the 5 short years we had each other. She will live forever in my heart. Run pain-free now little angel, until we meet again.
- Sheryl Goldberg
- Karen Spivey


Lucy Kimmel - 2018


It was love at first sight when we met Lucy. She was such a sweet dog. She was happiest snuggling with us or keeping rabbits out of the backyard. She also liked sitting on top of the couch, watching for a cat to walk down the street so she could bark at him.
- The Kimmel Family

Tina Herig - 2018


In loving memory of my sweet Tina. For 15 years she was my best friend. Her loss has left a huge hole in my heart. However, I have peace now knowing she is pain free again. Tina was the best little girl to come into my life. Over the years, she brought much joy and laughter to my family. We went through a lot together and I wouldn't change a thing. She definitely rescued me even though in reality I rescued her. Tina will always be loved and missed. RIP my baby girl until we meet again.

Loki Powell - 2017


Loki went to dog heaven in December 2017. We are grateful for a wonderful 10 1/2 years. Loki was smart, playful, comical, stubborn - and enriched our lives in many ways. He never met a toy he couldn't destroy. Loki baby, you are in our hearts forever.
- Chuck and Paula Powell

Brandi - 2017


Our eyes met 10 years ago on 8/22/07, I knew you picked me to be your Guardian Angel, you were my heart, my soul. You trusted very few to pet you. You are lovingly immortalized on the internet as the "Beagle who leaped off the Burlington Bristol Bridge" and lived to tell her tale. Chemotherapy was no match to the Lymphoma that took you from my protective arms. Now you are my Guardian Angel. I love you.
- Alexis and Bob Lorenz

In memory of Bronco -- tragically lost when his retractable leash broke on his evening walk - and taking with him a huge part of our hearts.

Shilo in the autumn of her life at Stokes State Forest. I have been truly blessed by my four-legged companion.

-Jimmy Esposito

Lola "Bean" Ressa - 2017


In loving memory of Lola "Bean" Ressa: Aka "Beanie," "Weenie," and "Big Mama"... for nearly 12 years she warmed our hearts (and feet as we slept!).

You are forever in our hearts.
-Jessica Ressa

Rosebud - 2017


Rosie (Rosebud) was a sweetheart. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. Her favorite place was a sunny spot in the yard, especially near the rose bush. She loved our "cooking" lessons and was the perfect "mommy," cleaning her beagle sister's face every night. We miss you snuggle bunny girl!

Kylee - 2016


In June of 2000 my wife and I adopted a six month old beagle from you named Kylee. Sadly we had to put Kylee to sleep on October 5. She was just a few months short of her 17th birthday. There was just no cure for advanced age. The memories of the years of joy and happiness she gave to us will always be with us. When we first spoke to you about adoption you said of Kylee, "If you don't like this beagle, you 're just not beagle people." Well not only did we come to like Kylee, we came to love her and all her breed. We are definitely "Beagle People."

Thank you for giving us the greatest blessing in our lives that day in 2001.

-Lynn & Richie Pryor

Bobby Forrest - 2016


"Official greeter dog at SOS Beagles - Atco!"
Bobby was a rescue himself, becoming my travel dog when I'd bring dogs north to NJ before returning to the state in 2007. He took no guff from any of the fosters, letting them all know he was the grand master of the house. He slept under the covers every winter night, and on the pillow next to me in the summer.

In loving memory of Taffy. A beloved family member for 11 years. I rescued her when she was 6 weeks old. Life was never the same! She was quite a character. The love and fun she brought me was beyond words. She left me all too soon, but some things are out of our control. I will always treasure her silly ways and the way she had me "trained." I spoiled her and loved every minute of it. RIP Taffy. I will always love and miss you.

Daisy Vail - 2015


When we decided to get our first Beagle I couldn't wait to finally pick her up. The man we got Daisy from knew from the start that Daisy was not going to be a good hunting Beagle because of her timid, loving nature. Boy was he right. She was the perfect family dog. She was affectionate, cuddly, and the all around perfect companion. She was truly the best dog anyone could ask for. She is sorely missed. We miss you Daisy girl.

Louie Aycart - 2014


Louie was an amazing addition to our family. He filled our lives with joy for 10 yrs. He could manipulate you to give him that extra treat, just by giving you those classic puppy dog eyes. He was a true beagle, loved to eat, loved to howl at a every stranger that passed the house, a true guardian. Louie's passing has left a great void in our family. He was a true character, a true pal, and most of all a member of our family....

Freddie - 2014

Freddie Beloved beagle of John and Karen Forrest

Art Kessler - 2014

Art Kessler Art was always the first one to volunteer for Saturday beagle events, settling in his chair with a beagle laying in his lap like a baby. He would often stop by our Atco home to see what new dogs had come in in hopes of expanding his pack. We'll miss his "Well, hello there" greetings.
-Linda Forrest
Art had a way with beagles. We recall the time we brought our foster, China to an event. China didn't like unexpected moves and would snap. I lost track of where she was. When I looked up, I was shocked to see her cradled in Art's arms. The beagles loved him.
-Ginny and Bob Olsen
Whenever Art was at an event you could be sure there would be lots of laughs and good times. Art will be very much missed When I think of Art, I smile. At SOS events he came with his coffee cup and you knew there would be plenty of laughs! Art is the reason we adopted Ellie and I am so glad he "encouraged" (LOL!) us to do so. Thanks, Art, for all the fun times!
-Maureen and Bob Heiss
SOS events will not be the same without Art being there, holding a beagle. Art was such a gentle, kind, caring man, and his love for beagles was very obvious. The beagles and all of us are very fortunate to have known Art. We will miss him.
-Pat Wolfe
Chuck and I met Art at one of the fundraisers a few years ago. We continued to see him for the next 4 yrs at many more, and enjoyed chatting with him. It was sad to hear of his passing. He was a gentle man who had a love for helping beagles find their way to a new chance at life. I sure he was welcomed by many 4-legged friends, who may have been shocked at first by his presence, but none the less happy to see him!

Barbie - 2014


R.I.P. My Sweet, Beautiful Barbie. On 2/1/14 at 2:30PM we helped Barbie cross the Rainbow Bridge. She was 16 1/2 years old. We rescued her from SOS on 1/17/1999 at approximately 1 1/2. She has been the joy of my life. We have 15 1/2 years of memories and are going to miss her terribly. We love you baby; you were a great friend and companion.
- Vinnie Fattizzi

Doozer - 2014


We were the lucky parents of Doozer, an SOS Beagle who celebrated his 16th year with us in December 2013. After a long and happy life, he passed away on January 4, 2014 at the ripe old age of 18. We are grateful to SOS.

- The Schull Family

Phoebe - 2013

Puck - 2013

In memory of Puck, a wonderful friend and a family member. Puck was aptly named after the Shakespearean character. Great with the children, he was also into fun and mischief, having been caught at times leapfrogging up chairs and onto the kitchen island so that he could enjoy the cat's food. Sometimes, in time for dinner, he would hop up on a kitchen chair and sit up like a human - waiting to be served with everyone else. Puck was always full of life and inquisitive. We will miss you, Puck.
Alison, Caitlin, Valerie, and Joe

Jack - 2013

In memory of our sweet, lovable, and most special beagle boy. You came into our lives an unexpected gift-- little did you know you captured our hearts and forever changed our lives. The joy you brought into our lives cannot be measured. The smiles you brought to our faces cannot be counted. The years passed all too quickly. You fought a good fight for so long. We knew you were ready to let go. We were not. We could never have been prepared for the heartbreak of losing you. Not a moment goes by that you are not missed.
Jill and John

Cricket - 2013

In Memory of Cricket Alessi. Cricket brought us so much joy over the past 11 years! We was more than a pet to us! Instead like another child!! It was the hardest thing we ever had to do when we decided to put her to rest 5-6-13. We couldn't be selfish & make her suffer. She had a great life, & not a day goes by that we don't think of her & talk about her daily!

Helix and Betta
In memory of Helix and Beta, they were best friends and did everything together. They came into our lives and made everything better.

Tina, Fred, and Maleah Kaplan

Winnie Stoever - 2013

The moment we stepped out of the car when we came searching for a friend for Tigger you stood up and stuck your paw through the fence calling us over to you. We took you home that day and you became a cherished friend of all of us. You gave us so much love and happiness over the 14 years we had you it is impossible to let you go. You will remain in our hearts and memories for the rest of our lives. Thank you.
Jim Stoever

Trooper - 2013

We adopted Trooper when he was 1 1/2 years old through the help of SOS Beagles. He started out sleeping in his crate and within days he was up in bed with us where he slept every night until he passed away at age 17. We were often told how lucky he was to have us, but we felt that we were truly the lucky ones to have him. Trooper you will be in our heart forever - we miss you so much!

Tucker - 2012

In memory of Tucker who was happiest most on Maggie's lap.

Your memory is in the hearts of many and the world is a better place because of all the love you gave and received

Earl and Otis Dreiblatt-Walker - 2011

Otis and Earl We were lucky to share many years of joy with Earl and Otis from the time they came to us from SOS. Earl spent much of his 16 years focused on strategies to get food, no matter where it might be. His exploits were legendary and no edible item was safe from his single-mindedness. He loved us and his brother Otis very much.

Otis joined our family six short years ago and stole our hearts. He was a bundle of love and happiness. Every day he woke up excited to see what would come and set a wonderful example. William and Otis were studying to become a therapy dog team at the time of his death. He was a natural.

We lost both of them in the space of a month, but we will always treasure their love and companionship.

Jeffrey Dreiblatt

Mike and Terri D'Angelo are donating in memory of two beautiful beagles from this organization, Otis and Earl. Our friends Jeffrey and William recently lost these two wonderful friends and we'd like to offer a donation in their honor.

Scooby Neal - 2011

Scooby Scooby wasn't just a pet, he was a friend, family member and form of entertainment. He quickly won the hearts of his family with his big brown eyes and puppy charm. Through the years, he made us laugh... and sometimes cry through his mischievous actions. But it just made us love him more. His 15 years with us went by quickly, but his memory will last a lifetime. Thanks Scooby. We love you.

Janice and Joe Neal and the rest of the Neal Family

Love, Janet

Trouble - 2010

Trouble The Torbik Family
You were mine from the day I saw you attack my shoes at 7 weeks, and you were never really any "trouble," despite beating the odds for several illnesses over the course of your 13 years. We will miss you but you will not be forgotten.

Daisy - 2010

Daisy The Beeby and Scenti Family
Our Daisy had a unique personality, larger than her twenty pounds belied. While she marched to her own drummer, she was always an integral part of our family. We loved her funny face, her beautiful markings and her Beagle pitch-perfect antics. If she were a person, she’d have been a timeless Hollywood icon. Thank you Daisy, and SOS, for enriching our lives, Beagle-style.

Lainey Viviane and Irv Pescov Farewell to Our Southern Belle Lainey
I look at the old sofa where you often sat, scratching my arm for love and a pat.
You would climb on my lap, and at times, after Jay Leno's traditional monologue,
Pushed our backs till we moved and went to bed!
Jay Leno is back but you're gone, my smiling Southern Belle.
You gave us joy, now it's sorrow! The memories linger from our eternal friendship.
My tears will follow you wherever you'll go at the Rainbow Bridge where our beloved friends will welcome your smiles!

Michele, Brian and family
Missing you, Lainey
