36 Beagles rescued from lab will be adopted.
This is a very sad news report, I simply don't understand the need on these dogs.

The Humane Society was a big help in this rescue. This chemical company is vile for purposefully injecting poison into these beautiful dogs. I hope they all eventually have a healthy recovery and a safe, loving home.

Buy products that are not tested on animals.

So what you're saying is that you don't want to be an experiment.

Guess what? The beagle doesn't want to be, either.

I've never had a problem buying such products. They're still tested before going to market and completely safe to buy.

Yes. I wonder if anyone saw the PETA spokeswoman on Tucker Carlson last week? I just happened to catch that segment and was amazed that Tucker agreed with her. She mentioned that animals are cheap and plentiful and a huge money maker, not to mention they get to write papers on what they did to the animal.

Now this is an old argument, but having it bought out on a news show gives me a tiny bit of hope. Tucker was open minded and said that researchers should apologize. Iím not a fan of PETA, but the woman presented her side well. Kudos to Tucker.

You can't. The FDA requires a whole category of products to be animal tested - but once they are, the companies that also sell those ingredients don't have to retest.

Anyone who comes up with NEW products, they have to be tested before being put on the US market.

So companies who state they are "cruelty free" and don't use animal testing, are basically saying we're using products other companies have invented and brought to market and tested on animals.

I agree. It’s the best course of action. Not perfect but better then the alternative. So sad that animals are still treated this way.
