Animal testing rescue charity brings survivors cross-country to step foot at new Rescue + Outreach Center;
First steps of freedom on the east coast

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

BEAGLE FREEDOM PROJECT RESCUES ANIMAL TESTING SURVIVORS
AND BRINGS THEM CROSS-COUNTRY TO NEW EAST COAST SANCTUARY

Eight pigs, six goats, three rabbits, and two alpacas spent their lives in an animal testing facility but were released to Beagle Freedom Project so that they could be free to live the life they were always meant to live.

All 18 animals have been on a journey from California to Beagle Freedom Project’s brand-new sanctuary, ‘the ROC’ – a 17-acre wonderland for animals in Lincolnton, North Carolina.

They will arrive tomorrow on September 26th to take their first steps of freedom on grass and into the loving arms of those who work each day to make sure they get to live after the testing.

WHAT:
Witness their arrival and reaction as they experience their new home of lush pastures, a lake where they can cool off, swim and mud bathe, rest in a state-of-the-art barn, and play in the great outdoors – something they have never had or ever known before.
