Helen Woodward Animal Center rescues 43 Beagles from lab-testing breeding facility

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – 43 beagles were just dropped off at the Helen Woodward Center after a huge rescue and they are now looking for foster families.

In total, 4,000 Beagles were rescued from the Virginia testing facility, and are now being sheltered at dozens of animal centers across the country. Helen Woodward is one of only two animal centers on the west coast that took these dogs in.

The cute, floppy-eared dogs were rescued, treated medically and now are looking for fosters! Out of the 43 beagles at Helen Woodward, 38 are females who had been used for breeding. The rest are adult breeder males.

KUSI’s Hunter Sowards spoke with officials from Helen Woodward Animal Center, who said most of these dogs have never even seen grass. That’s how bad their living conditions were at the lab-testing facility.
