Viral Video: Caged beagles get first taste of freedom
For nearly four years the Beagle Freedom Project said they have been transporting beagles from research facilities into loving homes.
According to the organization’s website, beagles are “the most popular breed for lab use” because they are cost-effective, adapt to living in a cage, and have ideal personalities. When research facilities release them for adoption, the Beagle Freedom Project finds homes for them “legally with the cooperation of the facility.”
In the beginning of May 2014, a group of beagles were introduced to a “new life, their new families, and freedom,” according to the organization.
“With time, patience, play, companionship, love- and most of all, freedom -these dogs will learn how to become dogs, and their transformation will be amazing,” said an organization spokesperson.
