WATCH: Beagles Rescued From Spanish Research Lab Land in California

Beagles Rescued From Spanish Research Lab Land in California

Forty Beagles that were used as test animals in a laboratory in Spain that went out of business have been saved with the coordination of many groups and made it safely to the California-based Beagle Freedom Project.

In total, 72 beagles were rescued from the lab, but 32 were adopted in Europe. One was picked up by new owners and the rest were taken to the home of north Hollywood animal rights attorney (and founder of Beagle Freedom Project) Shannon Keith for a special Thanksgiving.

The Beagle Freedom Project will set up foster parents for the dogs until they can find permanent homes.

Beagles are the most popular dog breed for lab use due to their “friendly, docile, trusting, forgiving, people-pleasing personalities,” the organization’s website says. The project works with university and other research facilities to legally remove and transport the canines to loving homes.

If you are interested in fostering or adopting any of these wonderful dogs, please click here for more information.
