Wisconsin Humane Society expects to see rescued Envigo beagles

You may have the opportunity to lend a helping paw to the Wisconsin Humane Society later this month.


The organization has reached out to the Humane Society of the United States to help take in some of the approximately 4,000 beagles being released from a medical facility in Virginia. The United States Department of Justice is working with the Humane Society of the United States after Envigo, which bred the beagles for medical research, violated several federal regulations, according to multiple news outlets. Last week, a federal judge ordered the beagles to be released, but animal rescue agencies only have approximately 60 days to find the dogs new homes. The Humane Society of the United States is already calling this a “historic operation” as one of their most extensive rescue missions ever.


Angela Speed from the Wisconsin Humane Society, which has a Door County campus, says they hope to have their newest arrivals by the end of the month. She adds that participating in large-scale rescues like this requires the support of foster parents willing to take in animals at short notice. It is even more important since some of the dogs making their way to Wisconsin are still nursing their litter of puppies. If you are interested in signing up to become a foster parent to help out these beagles and other animals, Speed suggests you contact the Wisconsin Humane Society or visit this link.
