Final update: Dog breeding facility closing after years of violations!

Envigo, the company behind the medical dog breeding facility under fire by federal investigators, announced its Cumberland County facility will close. The announcement came late Monday night, just hours after the company’s legal team expressed willingness to ‘wind down’ operations according to a federal court filing.

“The required investments to improve the facility and the lead time to achieve these improvements have recently increased. As a result, we have decided we will not be investing further in this facility, and it will be closed,” according to an online statement from Inotiv, which brands itself as a provider of “nonclinical and analytical drug discovery and development services.”

The breeding facility has been marred by federal complaints and animal welfare violations cited by the USDA and exposed in 8News investigative reporting as well as an undercover operation by PETA.

The news comes after a federal judge slapped a temporary restraining order on Envigo in late May after Inspections found dogs malnourished, sick, injured and kept in excessive heat.

Since initial complaints, hundreds of dogs have been turned over.

Much of the thanks for this goes to the dogged (sorry!) investigating team from WRIC, Richmond.
