You could soon be able to adopt one of the beagles recently rescued from a Virginia medical company. The Wisconsin Humane Society announced late in the day Tuesday that it has brought 62 of the approximately 4,000 beagles housed at the Envigo facility for future adoption. The number of beagles includes nine mothers and 53 puppies. The Humane Society of the United States coordinated the mission after a judge ruled that Envigo, which bred the beagles for laboratories to use for experiments, violated several animal welfare laws. The 62 beagles are staying with foster families before they are old enough to be available at Wisconsin Humane Society locations, including its Door County campus in Sturgeon Bay. The Wisconsin Humane Society is asking for donations to help care for the beagles and for potential families to keep their eyes on its adoption page if they would like one of the animals.
