BENEFITING: ANIMAL RESCUE MEDIA & EDUCATION

EVENT: 2015 LA Marathon

EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015

THE STORY:

The Beagle Freedom Project is a mission to rescue beagles used in animal experimentation in research laboratories and give them a chance at life in a loving forever home.

Why Beagles?

Beagles are the most popular breed for lab use because of their friendly, docile, trusting, forgiving, people-pleasing personalities. The research industry says they adapt well to living in a cage, and are inexpensive to feed. The beagles are usually obtained from commercial breeders who specifically sell to scientific institutions.

Help us Free the Beagles

When they are no longer wanted for research purposes, some labs attempt to find homes for adoptable, healthy beagles. Working directly with these labs, Beagle Freedom Project is able to remove and transport beagles to place them in loving homes. All rescues are done legally with the cooperation of the facility. 

A New Life

With time, patience, play, companionship, love – and most of all, freedom – these dogs will learn how to become dogs, and their transformation will be amazing.
