4,000 beagles saved from facility that bred them for drug experiments


In what’s thought to be one of the biggest dog rescue efforts in the US, nearly 4,000 beagles are looking for forever homes after being saved from a Virginia facility that bred them to be sold to laboratories for drug experiments.

Animal rescue organization volunteers started moving the first batch of dogs late last month, the US Humane Sociality reported. As of Tuesday, just over half of them had been removed, the non-profit reported on its website.

“I was able to bring out the very first puppy and it gets you. To know what these dogs were destined for and where they are going now, it’s indescribable,” said KittyBlock, president and chief executive of the US Humane Society.
