Since learning of the Beagle Freedom Project back in December via elephantjournal, I have continued to be touched by the stories and the efforts of this group. The Beagle Freedom Project, located in Los Angeles, works with labs and testing sites to take beagles and place them in forever homes if and when they are no longer needed and used. Before reading the article I had no idea beagles were even used in testing.
I wanted to post this article to draw attention to the good work being done to give these animals loving homes. I don’t know the details of the testing, whys, or hows, but I feel warmed by the thought that there are people working to receive these animals and offer them lives and homes.
Here is the Beagle Freedom Project website with details of what they are doing and how people can help. If you live in LA, maybe you could even bring a beagle home!
