Many people do not realize that beagles are frequently used as laboratory animals. Known for their docile, sweet dispositions and loyalty, these animals are considered the “perfect” test subject and sadly are kept in labs across the world for testing; predominantly, beagles are used in the pharmaceutical industry to test the toxicity of the medications used by humans. These poor dogs spend their entire lives in metal cages, never knowing the simple comforts of a well-balanced diet, a proper bed or love. When the animals complete their trials, they are typically “disposed of” by the facilities that keep them.

Thankfully, Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) is working to end this cycle of abuse by arranging for the release of animals at the end of their trials. In this video, BFP successfully secures the freedom of 10 beagles from life in labs in South Korea. Traveling many miles to Los Angeles, these pups are right at the beginning of their journey to a new, happy life!

Seeing the dogs set foot on the grass for the very first time is sure to put a smile on your face. Enjoy your freedom, beagles!

I cannot imagine what these Beagles had to go through in 6 years in a country like South Korea who has dog/cat meat markets and who feel nothing for sentient beings like animals. Thank you Beagle rescue Project for what you do for these animals.
