Greenmore saves beagles

Greenmore Farm Animal Rescue has successfully saved a group of 10 beautiful beagles as part of a national rescue effort by the Humane Society of the United States. The Humane Society assumed responsibility for the beagle relocation following a lawsuit brought by the Department of Justice against Envigo RMS LLC, a company that bred dogs to be sold to laboratories for animal experimentation. Envigo announced it would close the Virginia breeding facility they were operating in June.

Repeated federal inspections at Envigo resulted in dozens of violations, including findings that some dogs had been “euthanized” without first receiving anesthesia, that dogs had received inadequate veterinary care and insufficient food, and that they were living in unsanitary conditions.

Milo is one of the 10 dogs that were rescued.

“These dogs have lived their lives in a massive breeding facility riddled with Animal Welfare Act violations,” said Miguel Abi-Hassan, chief animal rescue, care and sanctuary officer for the Humane Society of the United States. “We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with our shelter and rescue partners to give these beagles a new life.”

Greenmore Farm is part of the Humane Society’s shelter and rescue partner program, a network of more than 350 organizations committed to serving as a safety net for pets and mentors for overwhelmed shelters across the nation.

“We are very happy to be able to give these adorable beagles a second chance,” said Julia Altman, Executive Director of Greenmore Farm. “Thanks to our rescue friends at Priceless Pets of California and the Humane Society we were able to help these babies who arrived at Greenmore Farm Animal Rescue last Thursday. Transport was coordinated by Cindy Smith and sponsored by Deandra Jebril; our loving driver was Beth Rubin of Kentucky” said Altman.

Greenmore Farm Animal Rescue has been helping animals find their forever homes since 2010 and has rescued more than 3,500 dogs since its inception. These beautiful beagles have just been neutered and spayed and will soon be available for adoption. Anyone wishing to assist in rehabilitating these beagles is encouraged to visit to donate. Adoption applications are being accepted as well through their website.
