Last week about 40 male beagles raised in a European lab that conducted testing on animals arrived in Los Angeles to be prepared for adoption by Animal Rescue Media Education (ARME). The organization's Beagle Freedom Project says the breed is popular with labs due to their "friendly, docile, trusting, forgiving, people-pleasing personalities," and these 4 to 7-year-old dogs were kept in isolated cages from birth. This is the group's biggest rescue so far, but in case you're having trouble picturing the adorableness we're dealing with, check out the video of dogs ARME saved from a similar situation this summer.

(As for the weepy/inspirational background music, considering that we're looking at dogs seeing sunlight and putting their paws on grass for the first time, we're feeling weepy and inspired enough as is.)

I'll never understand why animals are used to test things meant for humans - completely different biologically, it makes no sense. Why aren't we using our ever-growing prison population to test things on??
