    They are so lovable even though they've spent their lives caged up. My heart melted when one kissed the man in the van. I'm so happy to see all of them doing well.

    I think, that you mean more animals are caged for experiment-

    then we know of?

    I sadly, agree.

    I watched this video-it brought me to tears.

    How many more? Probably thousands-if you include countries that do not even acknowledge animals as anything but property.

    SURPRISE: 99% of the United States considers mammals-(live birthing animals) as property.

    Kind of like a coffee table.

    So-There were a lot of coffee tables in those cages, for all of those years.

    God bless, the kind, brave people-who gave them a life.

    Yes, there are more. Where can I donate money to help the others?? I am SO ready to do so. Will check it out.

    Property to me is a coffee table-not a living breathing, wanting, loving, trapped mammal in a cage.

    To me- The people who have no compassion for animals-are NOT HUMANS.

    I am not a religious person, but I definately believe in Good and Evil.

    I am seeing so much evil. Babies, Toddlers, Wives, Dogs, Parents-I know I've only scratched a bit of the surface.

    Truly. What the hell is going on????

    Cruel slaughter of animals. Not only for consumption, but for cruel Sport.

    I am SO dissapointed in our race.

    Man, this kills me. I had no idea my dad's motherland still does animal testing. Shame on them!

    It's strange, I am horrified about cases where children are killed or abused but I can read about them. But, when it comes to animals, I can't bear to hear about it or think about it.

    I suppose that may have something to do with the fact that laws are there to protect children and the general consensus around the world is that they should be protected. It is not the same for non-human animals. They really have no voice. Or not much. And they are so pure of soul and heart, just like human babies.

    I cried -- especially when I saw those eyes looking at the grass and wondering what it was. No animal should NOT know what grass and freedom feels like.

    Bless the rescuers!

    That broke my heart. My own beagle is a spoiled princess. I think they should all be spoiled.

    I cried my eyes out watching this video, but it was a good cry.

    Beagles are such sweet, precious dogs.
    Our family had one named Gina and she lived to be almost 17 years old.
    I can't afford to adopt one of these guys because I already have two dogs and two cats and no fence, but I'll certainly donate $20 to help them out.

    Here is the link for adoption, sponsor, foster...

    http://www.beaglefreedomproject.org/involved.php#adopt

    Just click the one you'd like to do, and follow the directions. Even if it's only $5, or $10, that's food and care. It matters. Every little bit counts...it really does.

    Just wanted to post up and say there may be a foster coming to live with the herd and Gracie. We'll know more on Saturday, but they have one who is in need of some reintegration and seems to be not doing well where he is now. So, I volunteered to foster him and work with him for a bit, and see where that leads.

    I'll know on Saturday, I think. Just couldn't say no...just couldn't pass the chance to spread the love a bit further. There's plenty, so there will be enough to go around...and he seems to very much need some security and love and comfort at the moment.

    Just thought I'd mention it.

    Heartbreaking and hopeful, at the same time.
    May we all know such resilience.
