I am adopted. Woohoo!!

Kingston was rescued by Beagle Freedom Project after he was a victim of “pound seizure“, which is still legal in 32 states across the U.S, in which he was sold to a laboratory facility from an animal shelter. From there, he was subject to having a car hit him in a laboratory facility in order to break his bones so they could repeatedly put him back together.

Kingston has an energy that is quite unique. For all the pain he has been through, he attaches quickly to his person once he bonds to them. He would do better in a home with a calm setting so he has time to slowly

Kingston's tail of freedom

I am so happy to be in gorgeous North Carolina.

I just moved here and I gotta tell you – a lucky dog like me can really get used to all these trees ‘n’ open space.

Because I haven’t always lived in a place this beautiful. Before, I lived in a waking nightmare.

I was sold to an animal testing lab by the shelter where I was held captive. At the lab, they used me to study broken bones – my broken bones – after I was hit over and over again by a car on purpose for their research.

I have only ever known this misery until you helped free me from this nightmare. I didn’t think I would get out of it alive. But I did.

It’s because of you, I now have….


P.S. Shelters selling dogs like me to animal testing facilities is legal and more common than you think. The horrific practice is called pound seizure and needs to stop. Learn more here and help BFP to end pound seizure once and for all.
