Beagles are a popular breed among pet lovers but they are also popular for another, more somber reason. Due to their gentle nature, Beagles are bred as lab animals, and its something something the Beagle Freedom Project wants to change with a new campaign.

The Beagle Freedom Bill campaign is aimed at ending the plight of Beagles in testing labs. The organization is encouraging supporters to join them in helping end the use of Beagles for commercial purposes as testing animals. According to the Beagle Freedom Project: The Beagle Freedom Bill will ensure that tax-payer funded laboratories in MN offer up the dogs and cats for public adoption through rescue organizations like BFP at the end of research. Today, standard procedure is to summarily euthanize (destroy) all of these animals.
