Of the more than 100 beagles that arrived in San Diego on August 31, PAWS was able to help find two of these beagles in their forever home. The two beagles that PAWS cared for flew to Gillespie Field through the efforts of the San Diego Humane Society, then were released to foster families and other animal welfare organizations throughout the county.

PAWS employees Sierra Casey and Jennifer Stein with beagles brought to the Coronado Animal Care Facility.

This is where PAWS of Coronado took in a male puppy and a 3 year old female beagle. “We were thrilled and excited to partner with animal welfare organizations across the United States to improve the lives of these beagles,” said PAWS Veterinary Services Manager Dr. Daniel Barbour. The beagles were among 4,000 beagles rescued from a mass-breeding research facility, named Envigo, in Virginia.

Fortunately, unlike most of their incoming dogs and cats, PAWS had the chance to prepare in advance for the care of the beagles. PAWS was grateful to see the support of the community who stepped up to help welcome these beagles into PAWS’ care, allowing both puppies to be placed directly into homes after their medical evaluations. PAWS, along with shelters across the country, continue to struggle with overcrowding and complex veterinary medical cases, but remain committed to our mission of advocating for animal welfare. As such, PAWS welcomed the opportunity to impact the lives of these beagles.
