Watch beagles take their first steps to freedom
This incredibly moving video was made by just one of the wonderful organisations short-listed for this year’s Lush Prize.
The Beagle Freedom Project is a mission to rescue beagles used in animal experimentation in research laboratories and give them a chance at life in a loving forever home.
Beagles are a popular breed for lab use because of their trusting, forgiving and people-pleasing nature. Testing on beagles in university and other research facilities includes medical/pharmaceutical, household products and cosmetics.
In this video two beagles take their first steps to a life free from torture – a reminder of just how important it is to fight animal testing today.
Join us on 13 November, or tune into the live stream on this site, to learn about dozens of other inspiring projects at the forefront of this fight. We’ll be awarding £250,000 to groups and individuals who work on lobbying, public awareness, science and training. During the afternoon we invite you to join us at a free event where you can learn more and meet the people involved.
