BRIARCLIFF MANOR, New York (WABC) -- Nearly a dozen beagles will soon be up for adoption at the SPCA Westchester Animal Rescue Center in Briarcliff Manor.

The SPCA welcomed the beagles from a facility in Virginia that bred dogs to be sold to labs for animal experimentation.

An investigation found there were 4,000 beagles housed in the mass-breeding facility, living in inhumane conditions.

The facility was shut down in early July.

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Dutchess of Sussex, are some of those who adopted a beagle afterward.
