Beagle Freedom Project's new campaign lets you be the advocate

Thousands of animals are in research labs across the country, many of which are in public facilities funded with taxpayer dollars.

Beagle Freedom Project has launched a new campaign where you become the advocate for a dog or cat in one of these labs, in the hopes of getting more out.
BFP's Identity Campaign  identified hundreds of dogs and cats through public records requests.

When you pay a $50 adoption fee, you get an adoption certificate, an engraved tag and everything you need to know about where the pet is and what has been done to them.

The hope is that people who adopt these dogs will become advocates and work to get them out of the lab.

The dogs and cats are in over a dozen universities, from University of Florida in Gainesville to Colorado State University. That means the chances are good there's a dog in need close to you. I was amazed at how many dogs were at the University of Florida.

  1. This sounds like a really awesome campaign! I hope that lots of people will get involved to try and make a difference for these sweet things! I'm definitely going to do it! Thanks for the great information!

  2. Recently a bunch of Beagles were rescued from Virginia Tech. It didn't even occur to me that Universities use lab beagles. Makes me sad ):

  3. Oh my goodness that's amazing that they've expanded like this. I still remember how touched I was when I heard about them originally (and that video....). I just looked up animals in my area ( just for curiosity ) and I'm quite shocked at how many Wayne State University has.. I love this campaign, thank you so much for sharing their wonderful work.

  4. What a great campaign! It’s a shame they still us laboratory animals but this gives them hope.
