All animal lovers surely know the story of Envigo beagles.
4,000 Beagles were bred for medical testing. They were held in appalling conditions until they were released in July by order of a judge.
Since then, Beagles have been sent to various animal shelters across the country. Now they get all the love they deserve. And some even managed to find a loving home and family.
Their story touched the hearts of many and spread around the world.
So recently, several rescued Beagles made the elderly happy by visiting a nursing home. One of the workers at this facility keeps some of these dogs at home.
And recently, these dogs have had a chance to leave the house and communicate with older people who also need companionship and love.
Nursing home workers welcomed the dogs and thought it was a great idea.
One of the workers said that they often look for entertainment for their residents, and there is nothing more fun than puppies.
The older people really liked the dogs. They held them in their hands, they said that these puppies are very warm, pleasant and the dogs really like it when they are hugged.
The purpose of this visit was also to ensure the socialization of the dogs and prepare them for future interaction with people and life in the family.
A friendly visit from these puppies can bring joy to lonely elderly people. So it was a great event for both the dogs and the residents of the nursing home.
One of the workers said that the staff was happy, the tenants were happy, the dogs were happy. So it was just a great idea.
