    "According to animal rescue officials, over 100 beagles were rescued from an abandoned cosmetics laboratory in Warren County, New Jersey earlier this week and they're now looking for new homes.

    The beagles were being used for pharmaceutical and chemical tests at the lab, officials said."

    Locals, can any of you tell us what cosmetics companies were using the lab?

    Oh, this is so sad. But, I'm thrilled that the beagles are finding new homes!

    My guess is that the lab was using the beagles to test the affects of "inhaling" mineral makeup. Hounds are super sniffers. There was an episode on Dr. Oz where this was discussed:

    http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/price-beauty

    excerpt:
    Mineral makeup is a big trend. Made from minerals such as mica, which are used for industrial purposes as well, these tiny particles are a thousand times
    smaller than predecessors from even 10 years ago. Their small size makes for a smoother, more flawless look, but it has one serious unintended consequence. The particles are so tiny they fall quickly through the air and can be inhaled easily into your lungs. When construction workers use mica in products such as spackle, they wear masks to protect their lungs from scarring over time.

    I am thrilled the beagles will be getting new homes as well, especially considering they have spent their ENTIRE lives in steel cages. Sniffing cosmetics.

    Thanks for the tip, Looking Up...I want to see if I can sleuth out what companies used them.

    I cannot WAIT to find out what cosmetic line this was.

    I swear, even if it is my favorite brand, I will never use it again!

    I meant for leaving the dogs behind after they had closed up shop. I am so glad that they are going to have a chance at living normal lives, bless their lil snoopy hearts.

    Loreal seems to be okay. I looked up Loreal and they have labs in Clark, NJ ... not Oxford, Warren County, NJ. So, if you are using Loreal products like I do, I believe we can continue to do so ... with confidence that a least Loreal is not associated with this case.

    Here is the Loreal link. Once there ... click on "Organization" then "Product Development Labs". http://www2.lorealusa.com/_en/_us/index.aspx?direct1=00004&direct2=00004/00001

    Below is an excerpt:

    The development labs utilize technology developed locally (in Clark, New Jersey, or Chicago, Illinois) or transferred from the L’Oréal Paris laboratories.
