The Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) is a service of Animal Rescue, Media & Education (ARME) that began in 2010. Their mission is to help the Beagles who are used in laboratories for animal experiments by rescuing them and finding them a loving, forever home.
In August 2015, BFP received a phone call about a Husky who was found wandering the streets by the Seal Beach Animal Care Center. His name is Nate, and he’s a purebred Husky.
When the center found Nate, his ears were cropped and his tail was docked–which is very unlikely for a Husky. They wanted to find out who could be responsible for this so they searched for a microchip. But when they found his microchip they discovered something dark about his past. It turns out, Nate came from a laboratory that is notorious for horrific animal testing.
No one knows what kind of horrible experiments Nate was subjected to. But the sad thing is, most animals that come from laboratories are dumped because some people find it hard to deal with their psychological needs. But thankfully, the Beagle Freedom Project are not giving up on Nate. They got him from the shelter and started rehabilitating him.
Nate got to meet and interact with other people and other animals. At first he was anxious, edgy, and jumpy; but thanks to BFP, Nate has learned to cope with his anxiety. They also gave him prescription medication to help calm his nerves.
Nate learned to love playing with the other animals. And he is very sweet and loving–kind and gentle with the humans who are now caring for him the way he deserves. And if this isn’t proof that a dog’s spirit can’t be broken, I don’t know what is.
Nate has come a long way and he is searching for a loving, forever home. And since Nate loves to play, he’d be a perfect addition to a home that already has a dog. That way, he gets a playmate too!
