Two Italian non-profits to oversee finding homes

Beagles freed from experimentation up for adoption

(ANSA) - Milan, July 23 - The 2,700 dogs confiscated last Wednesday by police from the controversial Green Hill dog breeding facility in northern Italy will be handed over to two Italian non-profit organizations that will oversee their adoption, a Milan court said on Monday. Authorities began inspections last week in preparation for the closure of the breeding center for beagles destined for scientific experimentation owned by the multinational firm Marshall Farms. Police said that three managers at the facility are under investigation for animal cruelty. The Italian animal rights association LAV and environmental advocacy group Legambiente will oversee their adoption process.
