LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington Humane Society is preparing for 15 of the approximately 4,000 beagles rescued from a mass breeding facility in Virginia to arrive Tuesday.

The dogs were kept in horrible conditions, and once at the humane society, the beagles will receive medical treatment before moving in with foster families.

“As with most animal shelters, LHS is caring for a very high number of animals this summer, and our resources are stretched to the limit,” said Susan Malcomb, LHS President. “Even with all of our challenges, our team categorically elected to help these Beagles. How could we not?”

Foster families for the beagles have already been identified. For updates on the beagles at Lexington Humane Society, visit LHS’ Facebook page.
