Join WCI in our newest Spirit to Serve initiative as we help sponsor the rescue of dogs and cats in need of life-saving assistance.
Almost a month ago, news broke of 4,000 beagles being rescued from a mass-breeding facility in Virginia that bred dogs to be sold to laboratories for animal experimentation. The facility was riddled with animal welfare concerns. Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is one of the many agencies that have partnered with The Humane Society of the United States to rescue these dogs and help them find homes.
Staff traveled to Virginia to pick up the dogs. Upon arriving at the Pet Alliance, the dogs received their initial doses of preventative care and were tested for heartworms. Each dog’s unique personality was apparent as the staff weighed, fed, and examined them. A blend of sweetness, curiosity, and nervousness was a common theme for all 15 beagles.
The Pet Alliance is proud to be one of the agencies helping to give these animals the lives they deserve.
Please consider donating to help Pet Alliance care for the beagles we were able to help with and many other animals like them. Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for further pupdates!
