Thousands of beagles saved from drug trials in US

Nearly 4,000 beagles are now looking for homes following what is believed to be the largest ever dog rescue effort in the US.

They were being raised in Virginia and then sold to labs for drug testing.

The company was shut down due to animal rights violations. Charities are now trying to rehome the dogs.

Envigo RMS sued Cumberland’s breeding facility for animal cruelty.

Inspectors discovered that some dogs were being killed rather than receiving veterinary treatment for conditions that could easily be treated. Some dogs were being fed food containing maggots, mould, and faeces while others were denied food by nursing mothers. 25 puppies also died due to cold exposure.

CBS News reported that the company denied the allegations and announced it would close the facility.
