Nearly 4,000 beagles are looking for new homes after one of the largest dog rescue operations in US history. “… it’s going to take 60 days to get all of these animals out, and working with our shelter and rescue partners across the country, working with them to get these dogs eventually into ever-loving homes,” Humane Society head Kitty Block said. Although most of the dogs were spread around the US, 200 of them were accepted into new homes in southern California. A Virginia-based business was breeding the dogs, and it eventually sold them to drug testing companies. Organizations are currently working to rehome the dogs after the company was forced to close due to animal abuse. The beagles are receiving medical checks and vaccines before being made available for adoption.
