After each animal is adopted and named by his or her new human, Beagle Freedom Project will send out an adoption kit, which includes a tag engraved with the animal's ID numberand information on how to contact the lab where he's being held, so that the new forever family can advocate for that animal.
Meet and greets are for adoptions only.
According to the Humane Society, dogs used in experiments are sometimes plucked from shelters or rounded up off the streets.
Thanks for understanding and your interest!
To date, it's helped more than dogs and two dozen cats transition to life outside of labs, finding them forever homes where they get a chance to know what it's like to be loved and cared for.
Therefore, it is most often the case that you will need to have another animal in the home in order to foster or adopt. Sacrificed for science, they're used in experiments until they're no longer needed, at which point they're often euthanized - no chance for a loving family, no sunlight, no belly scratches.
Email Comments Life is awful for a dog used as a subject in laboratory experiments: The only home he knows is a stacked metal cage in a basement lab, the only light he sees is fluorescent, he's never felt a gentle touch or a belly scratch and he associates humans only with pain.
BFP animals have traumatic pasts, and as a foster or adopter, a lot of patience and understanding will be required.
There will not be a meet and greet for potential fosters, as fosters are often asked to home an animal directly from the rescue site, with little to no knowledge about the animal.
