CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- This morning on Larry’s Look, we were introduced to the Beagle Freedom Project and two of the rescued dogs.
The Beagle Freedom Project began in December 2010 when Shannon Keith received information that beagles who were used for animal experiments in a research lab---were to be given a chance at freedom. Their mission to rescue and find homes for beagles used in laboratory research.
Beagles are the most popular breed for lab use because of their friendly, docile, trusting, forgiving, people-pleasing personalities.
The research industry says they adapt well to living in a cage, and are inexpensive to feed. Research beagles are usually obtained directly from commercial breeders who specifically breed dogs to sell to scientific institutions.
