When we think of animals used for research and testing, mice, rabbits and monkeys come to mind. While these animals are most commonly used in cruel experiments, many people do not realize that cats and dogs are also subjected to harmful tests. In the pharmaceutical industry, beagles are sadly regularly used to test for toxicity in drugs.

Because most people are outraged to learn that beagles, animals they consider beloved pets, are subjected to this cruel life, labs don’t openly disclose their use and are quick to euthanize the dogs after testing to keep it under wraps. However, Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) is working to change this by fighting for the release of animals after testing. This video features one of the amazing rescues that BFP helped to make possible.

These 10 beagles spent the last five years in labs, never knowing what life outside of these concrete walls could be like. According to BFP, South Korea uses 8,000 dogs annually for research and the majority are never released. But thanks to BFP and three Korean organizations, People Defending AnimalsNabiya Cat Shelter, and Irion Animal Hospital, these 10 would escape that sad statistic.

Now that they have been rescued, these pups get the chance to experience a whole world of new, exciting firsts. For the first time in their lives they will get to learn what love means, they will be given names and they’ll even get to feel the warmth of grass under their feet.

We could not be more thrilled to see these 10 dogs free to start the amazing life they have always deserved! Good luck, beagles!

South Korea is an advanced nation.They need to show more humanity towards animals.
Their taste for dog meat is another horror story.
Modern societies need to be more humane.Quality of life is for animals also.

Good to see also in Korea animals are getting some rights and freedom. We need t stop vivisection and all animal slavery NOW. Testing on animals is truly outdated practice that does nothing good for humans.
