The Atlanta Humane Society has taken in 27 beagles who were transferred from the Humane Society of the United States after being relinquished from a facility that breeds animals for animal testing.
On Wednesday, the animal welfare agency commented on the conditions the dogs had been living in:
They were born and living in confined, unsanitary spaces likely with little socialization from humans, and their care will be expensive and extensive.
The dogs are not currently available for adoption and no holds are being accepted. The shelter explains its policy:
We do adoptions on a first-come, first-served basis and do not place holds or pre-accept applications. If you are interested in adopting one of these dogs, you’ll need to sign up for pet alerts and keep an eye on our website.
