Tens of thousands of dogs and cats are used in cruel and deadly laboratory experiments in the United States each year. Each one of the animals behind this statistic is an individual who matters. Yet in laboratories they are assigned a number and treated as though they were laboratory equipment. When they are no longer “useful” for the experiment, they are usually killed, discarded, and forgotten.
Beagle Freedom Project believes that all dogs and cats deserve Names, not Numbers, and that they have a right to a home where they will be loved and respected as an individual. We believe that dogs and cats should have an Identity, not an identification number.
If it is your dream to adopt a laboratory dog or cat and you have been waiting for an animal to find his or her freedom to be their advocate, wait no longer. Beagle Freedom Project’s Identity Campaign will empower you to adopt a laboratory dog or cat while they are still in cages and work with us to fight for their freedom.
Here’s how the campaign works:
With your help, we can use this information to tell the stories of the dogs and cats who are languishing in laboratory cages at this very moment. Telling their stories will allow people to connect and empathize with these animals on an individual level. Fostering this kind of empathy is essential to realizing a future where every dog or cat has the right to be respected as an individual, and no animal ever has their worth reduced to that of a furry test tube with a number.
We need your help to realize the full potential of the Identity Campaign. Let’s get started.
