Gary Smith & Friends rescue laboratory beagles. Heartwarming video.
Just ran across this on a big blog, Daily What.
Gary himself blogged about this months ago, but it’s worth watching again and it seems many of the dogs still need loving homes. Luckily, this video seems to be going viral.
Our second rescue from beagles who have lived their entire lives inside a research laboratory. These beagles have known nothing except the confines of metal cages. They have known no soft human touch, no warm bed, no companionship, no love. They have never been outside or sniffed a tree or grass. Finally, after years of being poked and prodded, these beagles are FREE! ARME got the call that a facility was willing to release them to us after they had been used in several tests. We picked them up on June 8th and now they are all in loving foster homes, and one has already been adopted. If you are interested in adopting any of these special beagles, please email us at: [email protected] If you cannot adopt, but would like to help, ARME is a non-profit organization and we rely on your donations to continue this work. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation. You can donate here: http://www.beaglefreedomproject.org/donate.php
PLEASE DO NOT BUY PRODUCTS TESTED ON ANIMALS! You can see their faces now….. buy only products that have the cruelty-free symbol.
Heartwarming Tearjerker of the Day: Lab-raised beagles that have never seen the light of day are rescued and brought outside for the first time, thanks to the efforts of Animal Rescue, Media & Education (ARME) and their Beagle Freedom Project.
Happily, all the rescued beagles have since been placed in loving foster homes.
Information on adopting one (or all!) can be found on ARME’s Beagle Freedom Project website.
