It is no secret that beagles are awesome dogs. With their calm, docile nature, and eager to please dispositions, it is no wonder that they are currently one of the most popular dog breeds in America. But unfortunately, their popularity doesn’t stop there. Beagles are also the dog of choice for animal experimentation in research facilities. All across the U.S., beagles are used to test everything from household products to pharmaceuticals and prosthetics.

The Beagle Freedom Project is an organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming of America’s research beagles and their staff works tirelessly to ensure that these animals have a place to go, when the research facilities are “done” with them. So far, their valiant efforts have led to the rescue of hundreds of unwanted research dogs, deserving animals like this one, who is now free to enjoy a snooze in his new home.

This is where beagles belong … not in concrete labs.

Animal experimentation is a bit of a dirty little secret in the U.S., particularly as it pertains to dogs. No doubt, many people would object to the practice, if only they knew… In labs, beagles never get to experience what it means to be anything but a test subject. They are given numbers and treated as non-feeling objects. They never learn what kindness is like or even see the outdoors – let alone grass. Some dogs used in experiments have their voice boxes removed, so they are forced to endure this suffering in silence. Which is why we must be their voice.

The only proof I see is that Latrice Harrison is an anti-sicence propagandist.

All labs that use animals need shut down. Sorrowful what goes on in our society.
