Four Thousand Beagles to Be Rescued from Breeding Facility

A rescue of more than 4,000 beagles bred for the medical research industry has been coordinated between the U.S. Justice Department and several animal welfare organizations, including the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). The suit alleged that Envigo RMS, a Virginia-based breeding facility, failed to meet the minimum Animal Welfare Act standards for handling, feeding, sanitation, veterinary care and other requirements. Under the transfer plan, which was approved by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia on July 5, HSUS will work with multiple rescue organizations for two months that will safely remove the dogs and eventually foster and adopt them.
