020: Beagles and Laboratory Testing
6 days ago
A lot of people are under the impression that animal testing only includes small rodents like mice and rats. And, that now a days it's only for necessary medical testing. This is what I thought too. But a number of animals including dogs, cats, and even horses, are still used today. Popular brands that are under our kitchen sinks, in our showers, or tucked in our purses are more likely than not involved in animal testing. But, if these animals are healthy (and lucky) they may get a chance at a forever home with the help of Beagle Freedom Project. Beagle Freedom Project negotiates with laboratories across the world to secure the release of dogs and other animals and give them a chance at a normal home life after everything they have endured for vanity and scientific curiosity. With an ambitious immediate and long-term agenda that is both political and pragmatic. The organization is working toward the release of more animals and an end to animal testing altogether.
