Rescued beagles await new homes in Oklahoma

TULSA, Okla. – 4,000 beagles were rescued from a research facility in Virginia earlier this month and are now finding new homes.

The Humane Society of Tulsa helped bring more than 200 of these beagles to Tulsa on Thursday.

Many of these dogs were bred for research and pharmaceutical testing before being rescued by the United States Department of Agriculture.

Now rescue groups across the country, including the Humane Society of Tulsa, are working to rehome the dogs.

2 News asked how they could accommodate so many dogs when other shelters in the area were packed.

“Yeah, we’re going to have beagles to adopt, but we’re also kind of a transportation partner and big logistical plan to get them transported across the country from this Cumberland facility within 60 days,” says Rachel Ward, the director. for the Adoption Center.

Each beagle will undergo a comprehensive series of tests, vaccinations and medical care before being adopted.

If you would like to care for and adopt one of the beagles, you can complete an adoption application on the Humane Society of Tulsa website.
