Who are the Hedgesville Hounds? Although there is a Hedgesville, and we have definitely placed a fair number of hounds in homes, the term Hedgesville Hounds has become more emblematic than actual. It has its origins in one specific rescue that became quite inspirational to a number of volunteers. It has since captured in its scope the determination of many people with a common interest - dogs - and an uncommon commitment to helping them.
What began as an effort to help a single group of dogs in terrible need, gained momentum as these dogs were successfully placed in wonderful homes. The dogs became a kind of rallying cry, a challenge, and a cause. The Hedgesville Hounds 501(c)(3) group was formally established in 2003. We are an all volunteer foster based organization and we do not have a physical shelter. We have fosters throughout the Eastern Panhandle of WV, the DC Metro area (DC/MD/VA), and Baltimore, MD.
Hedgesville Hounds exist everywhere. They are dogs of every breed - every size - every age - who by circumstance, ignorance, or cruelty and neglect, were put at risk.
Our effort has been quite simple - to give them a voice. And a little help with arrangements. And then let these wonderful creatures do the rest.
We place dogs in homes throughout Maryland, Washington, DC, Northern Virginia, the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, and south central Pennsylvania.
