Thank you for the update! I read about this a few days ago, and so happy they have arrived. I thought I saw a tail wag in the cage! This is both fabulous and heartbreaking, for so many years to be locked inside a cage without contact - not even with it's own species - horrific. I once met a dog, a Borzoi, who had been rescued from a horrible breeder. The dog lived for 5 years inside a crate in the garage. He was painfully shy of people and the other dogs but the woman who rescued him - an angel, took him everyday to walk in the park. I wish all these pups the very best new life!

Saw this on FB. Thank goodness the news is circulating. These poor, little creatures never were allowed outside their cages all their lives (4-5 years!)!! The scientists choose beagles because they are so sedate and submissive. When will animal testing STOP!!!!!!

I am so happy that these sweet dogs have been saved. Those big eyes, wagging tails and wet noses...the uncertainty in their eyes...I was in tears watching the too-short video. It breaks my heart to think of how many animals are languishing, abused, in labs all over the world. And for what? Nothing.

Please do check labels and buy only from sources who do NOT test on animals. That is one step to take. Lets also try to rid all labs of animals used for horrible experiments.

So happy for these babies, testing on animals needs to stop. What a horrible life they had, but a brighter future is waiting for them. Thank you to all who helped with the rescue.

Claudia is right. No products tested on animals and no experiments on them. Thanks.

There is no reason animals should be tested on. If we tested chocolate on animals, none of use would be eating it. We are missing out on cures because the drugs do not test well on animals.
