Dog Breeder Fined $35 Million for Animal Cruelty as 4,000 Beagles Saved


A company which bred dogs for research will pay out $35 million in a record settlement, after failing to properly care for thousands of beagles at its facility in Virginia.
The Department of Justice said in May 2022 that Envigo RMS was failing to provide humane care and treatment at its facility in Cumberland, with over 4,000 dogs rescued.
Inspectors had found the animals living in unsanitary conditions, with animals euthanized without anesthesia and nursing without adequate nutrition. On Monday, the parent company Inotiv pleaded guilty to breaking animal welfare laws.
