We recently learned about how the wonderful non-profit advocacy group called Beagle Freedom Project and their amazing rescue of 38 dogs from laboratories, but this story proves what incredible things they are continuing to do. According to their website, beagles account for 96% of dogs used for testing in labs. Beagles are an easy target for testing because of their easy going nature, their ability to trust humans and their size. These all sound like positive qualities in a dog, and they are, but it is unfortunate that these dogs are being abused and taken advantage of because of the very qualities that make us love them. Sadly, man’s best friend isn’t safe from being locked away for life, even right here in the United States. Shocking. The big companies guilty of employing these barbaric practices would surprise you.
Being locked away in a laboratory is exactly what happened to the three sweet dogs in the following story from BFP. At 14 years old, these senior dogs were on their last legs after spending their life caged in a horrific laboratory in South Korea. After months of negotiation, BFP successfully brought the three musketeers, who they lovingly named Alvin, Simon, and Theodore to the United States and let them run free outdoors for the first time in their lives.
Let us know what you think about this video in the comments. We’d love to hear from you! Please share this horrific story with a happy ending on Pinterest to raise awareness for such barbaric practices happening all over the world.
