The Awww Of The Day: Beagle Freedom Project

These beagles have known nothing except the confines of metal cages until they were rescued. Prepare to weep a little.

We have a beagle that was rescued from a puppy mill. She was caged, had litters that were taken from her as soon as they could, never let out and barely fed. Its taken nearly 3 years for her to actually come out of hiding and start to trust people. She has two people that she trusts and runs from everyone else. Still a little chub even though she gets long walks twice a day. Eats like shes never going to eat again.
Shes got a lot of issues from living in a cage for so long but nothing that she should ever have gotten put down for. Shes a sweet dog, never even knew how to play until we got a second dog who showed her how to be a dog.

"Draculya

If they were all truly raised 100% in a crate they will have severe cognitive and personality disorders and sadly need to be PETA`d humanely."

you make that determination from a 5 minute video about them? jack ass.

thanks fancy, you big fluffy ball of cuddlyness you.
to all the trolls out there - test a drug on a dog and all it tells you is how that drug affects dogs, nothing else (remember thalidomide anyone? it went through lots of animal testing)
jeez, IAB used to be enjoyable banter, now its full of sick fecks.

The song and the annoying bitches almost ruined it for me till George sang and then it was O.K.
They should have released some bunnies for them to chase.

@carmium. Animals are only suitable for testing up to a certain age. Once they reach that age, they are usually euthanised and the carcass incinerated as Biological waste.

However, some companies allow certain animals to go to adoption centres or centres where they can live out their lives in peace. This is done to create the illusion that the company cares about the animals they are testing on, similar to how PETA is ran.

I`m all for human testing. Use inmates who are in jail for life, may as well make them useful for something.

Unclear on the concept: were these animals swiped from a lab or did the lab give them up after using them for a few years?

@ Squrlz4Sale - I`m not trolling, I`m making a point.
Animal taste testing is okay, right?

Can we see a vid of people dying because nobody could develop a treatment for them because some people wanted to save these animals?

And I bet if we used iguanas for testing, nobody would want to save them, because they are not cute and cuddly like bunnies and dogs and guinea-pigs and such.

I do not like the idea of animal testing, but I do understand that in some cases it is necessary (mostly for medical reasons). I do not like that it`s used for cosmetic reasons though. A lot of my makeup comes from The Body Shop, where everything is made cruelty free.

For people truly concerned about animal testing, and who sincerely believe it`s wrong and cruel, I urge you to do your part...when you are sick refuse medications, they are a product of animal testing. And don`t allow doctors to operate on you either. Trials for new surgical techniques are carried out on animals.

When you`ve got cancer or some other disease let`s see if your view of the value of animal testing chanages.

@ Tibialis:

honey i know that, i was just making a point. it`s so much easier to say, "oh well, some animal testing is necessary" when you don`t have an emotional connection to the animal in question. i think about how awful it would be for MY dog to be treated like that, and i don`t wish it on other animals.

Beagles are smaller and more docile than many other breeds, making them easier to work with.

I wonder why research always uses beagles? I also wonder why people who are so pro animal welfare take any pharmaceuticals at all, since they are all based on research with animals like this.

Although I don`t agree with the use of dogs as research subjects, you have to keep in mind that important medical discoveries, like the use of insulin to treat diabetes, originated from experiments that used dogs. Testing hygiene products on animals is cruel, in my opinion; but really, not all research revolved around shampoo and hygiene. There`s some pretty important stuff going down at universities.

@PsychGeek They are not taking your pet away or pouring shampoo in its eyes. The necessary animal testing described is the testing of medications and treatments to save lives. They use animals bred for the purpose and they are treated as humanely as possible during their lifetimes. It is necessary as sometimes only a whole animal/human will be able to produce the result required to move on to human testing.

The treatment of these beagles is not how most are treated and it is most certainly not ok to treat any animal like this for whatever reason.

@ dude21862004:

try saying that when your pet is taken away, shoved in a cage, and has shampoo poured in its eyes to see if it creates tears.

....Still think it`s necessary?
