Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Medical schools and laboratories routinely use, harm, and kill dogs for research experiments. Researches use these dogs to test a wide range of subjects from cancer and transplantation to human drugs, food additives, beauty products, and even industrial chemicals.
According to the American Anti-Vivisection Society, Beagles are the breed of dog most commonly used for animal testing, and most of the beagles in labs are purposely bred for research, though many dogs are obtained from “unknown sources” such as shelters, ‘free to good home’ ads, and auctions.
Animals are proven to be poor models for human disease research because they are genetically different from humans. From the New England Anti-Vivisection Society (NEAVS), Dr. Richard Klausner, former Director of the National Cancer Institute says, “We have cured cancer in mice for decades – and it simply didn’t work in humans.”
Dogington Post launched a campaign to bring awareness to the 2.5 million weekly dog lovers the site reaches.
“Testing on Beagles is immoral, the results are unreliable, and it’s not regulated well at all. If it were, we wouldn’t have all these videos of scientists beating up Beagles,” said Dr. Kilstein, Top Dog at the Dogington Post.
The site published articles and videos about the suffering of the Beagles used in laboratory research and was flooded with comments of outrage and concern from readers who supported their efforts to stop animal testing.
“We are talking about living, breathing, feeling beings,” said Dr. Kilstein. “Who are reduced to data machines, being forced to suffer disease and injury, held all their lives isolated in cages, and then killed and tossed aside when they aren’t needed anymore.”
Dogington Post named one of the many suppliers in the U.S. for Beagles and Beagle parts for research and suggested readers ask this company to stop killing beagles.
The site also published links to several Beagle rescue groups who work closely with some laboratories to find suitable homes for Beagles that survive research labs.
Additionally, Dogington Post urged readers to only purchase products that are certified “cruelty-free” and provided resources for consumers to find products that are not tested on animals.
