Beagle Freedom Project – Second Rescue – June 8, 2011

Please note that watching this video will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, having tissues handy is recommended for many… reading the information that follows, however, will likely get you feeling depressed and angry. But you should do it anyway.

Our second rescue from beagles who have lived their entire lives inside a research laboratory. These beagles have known nothing except the confines of metal cages. They have known no soft human touch, no warm bed, no companionship, no love. They have never been outside or sniffed a tree or grass.

Finally, after years of being poked and prodded, these beagles are FREE! ARME got the call that a facility was willing to release them to us after they had been used in several tests. We picked them up on June 8th and now they are all in loving foster homes, and one has already been adopted. If you are interested in adopting any of these special beagles, please email us at: shannon@beaglefreedomproject.org.

If you cannot adopt, but would like to help, ARME is a non-profit organization and we rely on your donations to continue this work. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation. You can donate here: http://www.beaglefreedomproject.org/donate.php

PLEASE DO NOT BUY PRODUCTS TESTED ON ANIMALS! You can see their faces now….. buy only products that have the cruelty-free symbol.

This was first noticed at this site by The Old American, the poster I learned of it from, which happened here.
Gridrebel added this to the discussion:

If one were to go to the www.thevegetariansite.com… which is listed in the “companies that still test on animals” tab, you would find this:

Many manufacturers of personal care and household items still test their products on animals, despite the growing number of alternative methods for evaluating product safety. The following list contains all such companies known and their associated brand names. This list originally was compiled from two primary references (cited at the bottom of this page). In addition, it is updated as new information is made available to us. We cannot fully guarantee its accuracy, so please use the list accordingly–and do let us know if you can offer any further updates. You may wish to print out the list and take it along next time you go shopping! Please also note that all over-the-counter medicines and/or their ingredients are extensively tested on animals, as currently required by the FDA.

Obviously, many many non-pharmaceutical companies in the above list. Lots of cosmetics though. Mop-n-glo????? Pledge?????? What else could they be testing in these products, since they HAVE BEEN TESTING those ingredients for years. The ingredients haven’t changed. If Triethanolamine for instance is dangerous, what difference does it make if it’s in one or a thousand products. Why keep testing the same products over and over again? Freakin disgusting!

That is quite an impressive and depressing list, wouldn’t you say? Damn. I find the note “as currently required by the FDA” not too reassuring. Despite the disclaimer regarding it’s complete accuracy, it is nonetheless comprehensive enough that it would appear on the surface to be rather difficult at best to avoid availing oneself of the products of at least some of these firms. This should not, however, prevent us all from trying our best at finding friendly products through research of course. Help in this matter is welcome, please post what you find as comments.

Remember… as Burgo1010 has informed us… “if it does not say on your shampoo, bleach, etc., “not tested on animals” then… it is.”

Peace.
