Heard about that on the news… what a terrible thing to do to so many innocent dogs.

I just balled my eyes out! I am without a doubt a gigantic dog lover and this made me extremely sad and happy at the same time. It’s a beautiful story<3

OMG. That’s awful. I’m not going to watch the video though because I am a beagle mommy myself and I will lose it. I hadn’t heard about this in the news at all. It makes me sick to my stomach.

My precious boy, Simon

I am involved in the animal rights community, and I’m Facebook friends with one of the leaders of this rescue effort!  In addition to leading the rescue, he is fostering quite a few of these dogs.  He has been updating his FB several times a day with little stories about the dogs’ progress, photos, videos, etc.  It’s AMAZING to see!

I am so happy this is making international news!  @MrsDrRose612: It’s so wonderful that you have been inspired to seek volunteer opportunities in your area!!  Good for you!

Thanks for sharing this story here!

Here is a FB update that totally made me choke up at work.  Dogs really are such amazing creatures, and I think their ability to forgive is so inspirational.


I spent yesterday & today with 18 Beagles. They were 18 of the 40 rescued from the testing lab in Madrid, Spain by Shannon Keith & the amazing Beagle Freedom Project Team. All 40 arrived in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

One of the volunteers who brought them from the airport to Shannon’s house told me that when he opened one of the crates to take out one of the Beagles, instead of coming out the pup just lifted his left paw, then turned his head & looked away. My heart sank because i knew exactly why he did that. When this little boy was being tested upon, all he knew was that when a person came to his cage then it meant only one thing, it meant that it was time to be injected. The workers at the lab would inject the ‘beauty products’ directly into the beagles bloodstream through a vein in their left paw.

I cannot even begin to comprehend the sheer agony, the excruciating pain and the constant vomiting that would then follow. For over 6 years these amazing, gentle & loving dogs went through this ritual 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and why? For make-up, for shampoo and for skin cream, that’s why.

The 18 Beagles are at Shannon’s house in LA, and it is quite the scene. They are not in cages but in pens so that they may socialize, something they had never done. The fact is they had never done much of anything until now. They had never walked on grass, never played with a ball, never cuddled up with another dog and never, ever had a hug, from anyone, ever, until now.

What struck me the most about these incredible dogs is that they bare no grudges & they have no chips on their shoulders. For reasons that i will never understand, they have already forgiven us for what we, as a race, have done to all of them. They just want to have a home, they just want to be loved & they just want to be dogs & that is the very least that we owe them.

I cannot watch those things (I can’t handle the stories about the dogs that won’t leave their owners sides at their funerals – tears me apart for DAYS). 


As the proud owner of two AWESOME dogs (a formerly abused Mountain Cur & a total girly girl Shih Poo), I just cannot imagine how someone can do this. I have had dogs my entire life. I have neighbors who leave their dogs out 365 days a year. It breaks my heart. They are so innocent & loving… I just cannot imagine doing that, let alone testing on them!!

Here are my babies:

Lucy the Mountain Cur

The video was sweet but that music was horrid. I had to mute it to watch it.

@summerteeth: Your dogs are beautiful!!  I’m so happy they’ve found a loving home with you.  My Fiance & I adopted a chihuahua about 4 months ago; she was rescued from a hoarding situation (the woman was hoarding 20+ dogs in her home).  We don’t think our pup was physically abused, but she sure was neglected & definitely not given enough love.  Now she gets plenty!  Smile

So, this is slightly OT, but in the spirit of rescue dogs, here is my sweet Edith:

(It’s hard to get a good pic of her because she always looks away when the camera is on her…  This is the best we have so far, even though she looks kinda mean!  Haha.  She’s such a doll.)

Thank you so much for bringing attention to this. 

We got our sweet Roxy girl form AZ Beagle rescue. She was 8 months old and had been a “lab puppy” for a perfume company.

I don’t know how people could keep such precious animals locked up and poisen them.

Ok posting pics they will be big. Sorry but I just love her so much and I have to share.

Also my vet said that part of her left ear had been sliced off at one point. He said probably during a c section. Can you imagine?
