10 Lab Beagles' Lives Saved
An Animal Rights Article from All-Creatures.org


Beagle Freedom Project (BFP)
February 2013

BFP rescued 10 beagles this week from a mid-west laboratory. All of the dogs were taken into the rescue center in Los Angeles on Wednesday after our new friends at www.comfort-carriers.com made the two day ground transit with this precious cargo. All 10 dogs are male, at least 4 years of age, and in varying degrees of emotional health.

This group of beagle is going to need some extra TLC. Four plus years in a lab is long time and additionally many of these beagles have been kept in isolation for at least their last three years of life. As with most lab rescues, the details of their tests and standard of living is kept purposefully vague and what has been learned by BFP is kept legally confidential as per condition of their release. All of the dogs are currently receiving veterinary care, emotional rehabilitation, and are just in the preliminary stages finding foster and permanent homes. The other job of telling their story, and that of all animals in labs, begins immediately and doesn't stop.

In April BFP will be coordinating with all national volunteers for a dedicated day of outreach to expand this support infrastructure. Stay tuned for details.

And as with all rescues... you know these efforts do not come cheaply. Please contribute what you can to help with these costs.
