Belle was rescued from a lab in 2012 as a part of the NorCal 11 group. She was tragically used in experiments that required her to be impregnated and her puppies tested on in-utero. A lucky lady, BFP secured her freedom and a couple of her puppies!
Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there - whether you're a beagle mom or a mom to a non-beagle ;) Thank you for your love and compassion! #beaglemom#mothersday
#BFPWhereAreTheyNow: Rosie was one of 38 rescued as part of BFP's Summer of Freedom rescue in 2015 and has been free from a research lab for almost 2 years.
Most of the dogs from this rescue were very young and we were shocked to find that Rosie was only 11 months old. Still a baby, she only weighed 19 pounds but she had spent enough time in the lab to be traumatized as we would discover later.
See all the cute pics and see how Rosie is doing today: bfp.org/rosies-story
Maddie from BFP's DC7 rescue is considering running for Congress!
When you hear the name George Washington, people don’t usually think about a 7-year old beagle with long, silky ears and a penchant for getting rowdy at mealtime! George Washington? People ask. That’s a big name for a little pup.
George was part of Beagle Freedom Project's DC7 rescue in July 2013. Like his buddy, Hamilton, his name is in honor of our Founding Fathers. Read the full update and see how he's doing now: bfp.org/georges-story
November 26, 2015 is the day my life changed forever! While I was happily sleeping I was awoken to “Jennifer, Jennifer, Jennifer, look, dogs!” I drowsily opened one eye, trying to decide if it was worth waking up for. Rubbing the sleep from my eyes, I watched with joy a program about shelter dogs, a cause I have been passionate about for years. My happiness quickly ended when the next segment began... “The Beagle Freedom Project “(BFP) the announcer spoke, as images began to be shown on the screen. Cruel, horrible, images crossed my eyes that had now begun to fill with tears. The statistics were shocking: 70,000 dogs, were unwilling victims in the practice of animal testing.

In November 2011 Beagle Freedom Project undertook a historic rescue of 40 beagles from a pharmaceutical lab that was closing in Spain. This group of dogs endured some of the most traumatizing experiments and many of these survivors struggled with adapting to a new life of love and freedom.
One of those 40 was Charile. Please read Charlie’s story: bfp.org/charlies-story

@ryanmoore: On May 07 2014 I was able to go rescue 7 rabbits from a laboratory on behalf of Beagle Freedom Project. I was told they were only a month old and had already been used for experimentation. Several of them died within a month after leaving the lab. I decided to adopt two of them and named them Jack and Marilyn.
#BFPWhereAreTheyNow: This past December, two new rescues joined the BFP family. They’re cute, cuddly, and they are pigs! Now, four months later, Albert and Mendel are enjoying their new found freedom with mud baths and hay snuggles.
Almost three years ago, Beagle Freedom Project’s Summer of Freedom 38 rescue took place. Traveling from coast to coast, BFP was able to rescue 38 beagles who would soon be placed into the arms of their new forever families. Among the group, there was a shy, adorable beagle who traded in his number for the name Romeo! #BFPWhereAreTheyNow
Read Romeo's story and see how he is doing today: bfp.org/romeo

Peyton and Woody’s Story #BFPWhereAreTheyNow
In every rescue there is usually one dog or two that emerge a little more cautiously, carrying a little more emotional baggage. Like people, some dogs process trauma more slowly and need extra time, patience, and care. Peyton and Woody’s struggles did not end when they left the lab. As you read this very candid and touching update from their adoptive family you'll see they did heal and are remarkable individuals: bfp.org/peyton-and-woodys-story
Beagle Freedom Project has joined a coalition of animal protection groups to sue the USDA over the removal of its online animal abuse registry. This unprecedented move destroys transparency and makes it harder for BFP to rescue animals from laboratory experiments. @kalieshorr
Beagle Freedom Project has partnered with @kissmyfaceusa to save more animals with lots of cruelty-free love!
Kiss My Face was founded on the principal that there is no need for animal testing and it is ethically wrong. Beagle Freedom Project’s mission is ethical as well, so we couldn’t be more excited to announce our Partnership in Compassion! Kiss My Face is BFP's @crueltycutter app sponsor through mid-March! *Special Deal - App users will receive a coupon for 40% off their entire Kiss My Face purchase when they earn 25 Doggie Dollars and redeem by March 17 so grab your phone, start scanning, and help save the lives of laboratory animals! #bfp#kmf#kissmyface#animaltesting#crueltyfree
#BFPWhereAreTheyNow: Cate came to us from her foster family a month after her release. She was part of Beagle Freedom Project's Summer 38 rescue and was only 10 months old. Despite the shorter amount of time in a lab compared to others, her behavior left us breathless at how much damage was done in 10 months.
The “Animal Welfare Accountability and Transparency Act” S 503 has just been introduced in response to the USDA removing its online database and hiding violations of the Animal Welfare Act. Senators Wyden and Menendez along with Reps. Earl Blumenauer, Susan Davis, and Don Beyer have filed bills which would require USDA to repost this information on its website and increase accountability for those who treat animals inhumanely.
Beagle Freedom Project, in concert with others, has already filed suit against USDA, and we are heartened by this additional Congressional response. Whether through litigation or legislation, we will prevail! But your help is needed.
Support BFP’s lawsuit against the USDA with a tax-deductible donation. All contributions in the amount of $23 will be dedicated to this alone: On our Facebook or Twitter (it does NOT work on IG). Comment “#donate” + any amount (ex: #donate $23) and we will reply with a short one-time registration form for you to complete! Or donate at bfp.org/donate.
You may know the name from your U.S. history classes, the $10 bill or most recently, the eponymous Broadway phenomenon… but at Beagle Freedom Project, the name Hamilton conjures up one image: that of an adorable little DC beagle.
Hamilton was rescued in 2013 as part of our DC7 Rescue. Read the full update on how Hamilton is doing now: bfp.org/hamilton
#DonutAlert: New York City head out to @cinnamonsnail all this week and grab a fantastic #vegan rum spice glazed donut filled with rich peanut butter chocolate ganache! Proceeds donated to Beagle Freedom Project!
Just tell them you want the donuts that support Beagle Freedom Project (BFP)
#BFPWhereAreTheyNow: Baxter was the bad boy of the Beagle Freedom Project Midwest 10 Rescue. He had difficulty getting along with other dogs and went through 3 foster homes. The day he arrived at my house he peed at the front door, wandered through every room, peed at the back door and then took a nap in the sun. He was HOME!
