Laboratory Animal Testing

Giving Freedom and New Homes to Beagles from Testing Labs!

BFP in actionBeagle Freedom Project

According to BFP  …  “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. Research beagles are usually obtained directly from commercial breeders who specifically breed dogs to sell to scientific institutions.

A project of Animal Rescue, Media & Education ARME), BFP reaches out to organizations conducting testing on beagles in university and other research facilities includes medical/pharmaceutical, household products and cosmetics to rehome them.

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.

BFP is working to build the Rescue & Outreach Center (ROC) to provide the temporary care for laboratory dogs and animals as they transition and get the veterinary care, love, and psychological assistance they need to begin their new life.  YOU can buy a brick and help them make the ROC a reality!
