Beagles & Bricks
Did you know that nearly 70,000 dogs are TESTED on YEARLY basis in the United States alone (information provided by PETA)?
Due to their docile, loving and forgiving nature, Beagles are the preferred breed to utilize for research.
Beagles are used in a wide range of research procedures: fundamental biological research, applied human medicine, applied veterinary medicine, and many others…
Dogs are a favored species in toxicology studies. In these studies, large doses of a test substance (a pharmaceutical, industrial chemical, pesticide, or household product) are pumped into animals’ bodies, slowly poisoning them.
Dogs are also abused in human disease studies, including studies of heart and hormonal disorders. In one University Study, researchers forced surgically manipulated dogs to run on a treadmill until they collapsed from a heart attack. The dogs were killed, and the damage to their heart tissue was studied. In another violent experiment at a separate University, puppies were bred to have a degenerative eye disease that culminates in blindness. During the study, 3-week-old beagles had their eyes cut out and were killed, according to PETA.
What Is Beagle Freedom Project?

states. 135 beagles, 15 mixed breed dogs, 8 rabbits, 2 cats and 3 pigs have all
been saved, treated, rehabilitated, and rehomed through Beagle Freedom
How Can I Help?
As of September 2013, Beagle Freedom Project is projecting a land and building

a timely manner, a possible spring ground breaking is planned.
