As you've probably already seen and heard, there is a national organization with ties to the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) and animal rights extremist terror that has disguised itself as a group seeking adoptive homes for dogs and cats used in research. Make no mistake: this is not their ultimate objective. They have used these animals as props in the media to vilify lifesaving animal and veterinary research and as fundraising tools to fund their expensive lobbying campaigns as they pursue anti-research legislation across the country.
There is, however, thankfully one group who makes it their mission to find homes for former research beagles after they have helped in the endeavor to improve human and animal lives. The Beagle Rescue League's Labs to Leash Division works tirelessly, day-in and day-out, without a political agenda to place the right dogs in the right homes. Last week, the Foundation for Biomedical Research (FBR) interviewed Carolyn Sterner, President of the Beagle Rescue League, and discussed the Labs to Leash Division's valuable work to assist research institutions' adoption efforts.
