ANN ARBOR – More beagles are about to have another chance at a happy life in Tree Town.
The dogs have been removed from a research and breeding facility in Virginia and are heading to Ann Arbor on the Humane Society of Huron Valley’s Love Train.
Trained program staff bring the animals to the Cherry Hill Road facility using a specially equipped van. He has already brought a group of former research beagles in the area, which were quickly adopted by enthusiastic families.
“If all goes as planned, the beagles (all male, 10-11 months old) will be ready for adoption on Friday. They are unsocialized and in addition to loving forever homes, they will need a lot of patience,” HSHV officials said. wrote on Facebook.
The dogs are part of a group of 4,000 animals that made headlines when they were rescued from an Envigo farm. It was alleged that the company violated federal animal welfare regulations and that the dogs were living in unsanitary conditions.
Those interested in adopting one of the young puppies can join this virtual queue from 9 a.m. Friday.
HSHV also accepts donations to help pay for dog care during transport and assessment. Cash donations can be made here.
