New Beginnings for Beagles

AM1_8778
All 18 of the HSSC's beagles have found their furever home! 

HSSC received 18 beagles from a partnership with the Humane Society of the United States, which took possession of 4,000 beagles from Envigo, a mass breeding facility that has received multiple violations for issues such as inadequate veterinary care and insufficient food. Many of these dogs were bound for animal testing laboratories across the country. You can learn more at: https://www.humanesociety.org/4000beagles

We are so excited to be able to give them a home life, something they would have previously been denied.

Anna Gonce, HSSC's Executive Director

HSSC received over 400 adoption applications for the Envigo beagles. Applications came in from all across the country. Everyone wanted to do their part to help. 

It was a monumental task for staff to comb through each application and find a home that was best suited for each individual dog, but each dog was successfully placed with their new family. There were lots of smiles and quite a few tears for those adding a family member to their pack.

All beagles were neutered, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested, current on vaccinations, and flea, tick, and parasite preventatives.
