I've been volunteering with ARME/BFP since 2011. This organization keeps growing and finding new ways to improve the lives of animals. Their passion is contagious and their commitment is unwavering. I'm honored to donate my time and my money to this life changing organization.

I work in biomedical research and whenever possible I work to see that animals are adopted out to loving families after a study. These studies are reviewed by institutional animal use boards, and are done for the medical benefit of humans and animals. If animals have been killed in a terminal study (i.e., cancer surgery research) I have worked to get the bodies donated to wildlife rehabilitators to feed injured and orphaned wildlife. I really like to see life celebrated and not wasted.

Unfortunately, this non-profit makes adopted animals into ambassadors against biomedical research, causing research labs to stop adoptions. This group's work had led to the needless killing of many animals that could otherwise have found homes. This group creates intimidation, scaring the laboratories that adopt out animals... in response the labs don't cease animal research, they stop adopting to avoid getting attacked publicly for doing valuable research.

Shameful that animals needlessly die because this group has had a chilling effect on adoption of retired research animals.

Brody has been a gift to my home. This sweet, frightened young Terri-poo came to join our family thanks to the loving care of the ARME Rescue and Foster Project.
This organization came to complete a home inspection; making sure the conditions were optimal for this scared, 4 year old pup. We checked out and the adoption moved forward.
The work ARME does transcends placing animals; they walk the walk, in living a cruelty free live and advocate for animals world wide.
thanks you for the work you do,

Lisa and Brody

I've been volunteering with Beagle Freedom Project for over a year now. I also adopted my sweet Charlotte from them. The work the organization does to bring awareness to animal testing and attempt to eliminate unnecessary euthanasia is extraordinary. Keep up the great work BFP!

I adopted my beloved beagle, Charlie from the BFP. Without going into detail about how horrendous it is that beagles are used in laboratorys in the first place, I just want to highlight what a wonderful organization the BFP is. The process to adopt was so easy and seamless because of how professional and organized they are. They are in it for the long haul with these precious pets. Not only do they do a great job screening potential adopters, they are there to support these families after the ink has dried. These dogs deserve loving homes and BFP sees to that. They are so worth it!

This is an amazing animal rescue group. They go above and beyond to rescue animals. I followed and supported them for over 5 years. in the last year i have had the opportunity to adopt two of their lab rescues. It changed my life. And it certainly changed those two rescues lives. Hands down the best rescue group i have ever had the pleasure of working with.

We adopted Manny from Beagle freedom project who is an amazing charity. Manny spent 12 years in animal experimentation and we owe it to BFP for having him in our lives. Wonderful people who fight for a great cause to end animal experimentation

I adopted my bunny from ARME. They were easy to contact and responded promptly to specific questions I had; my experience with out shelters was that I would ask specific questions about the personality of pets I was considering and they would send me a generic response and I would have to call sometimes a couple times to follow up. After I was chosen as his new human, at my request they kept him for me an additional two weeks so I could have time to get everything he needed. They dropped him off and made sure he had everything he needs at his new home. And best of all they ask for updates on our new life together and have even helped me when he was sick.

ARME dba BFP is a wonderful organization. I am a kitten foster for ARME, and they are extremely professional and attentive to the needs of their foster babies. They never turn away an animal in need.

For over a year now, I have advocated on behalf of the Beagle Freedom Project! I was even able to meet the Vice President of BFP Kevin at the Springfield, Illinois lobbying event for the Beagle Freedom Bill and he was so passionate about saving these animals which was awesome to see. I love this organization and hope to adopt a rescued laboratory dog in the future :) thanks BFP for all that you do!!!

I have fostered twice for Beagle Freedom Project. It was the most amazing experience, the most rewarding experience ever. The president Shannon Keith is the most caring amazing woman and Kevin, Cate, Monique, Megan are awesome too. My first foster Ella was adopted by my good friend and lives up the street. My second foster Teddy, a 14 year old beagle, well I adopted him. I so thankful they rescue these animals out of laboratories. They deserve to have a good life after what they have been thru. I hope I see the day when they no longer experiment on animals. Here is a picture of Teddy and Ella.

I have 2 rescues from ARME and Beagle Freedom Project. They are an amazing organization that is dedicated to saving animals from lives that many other rescue organizations may not have the ability or compassion to take on. All of the employees take a personal interest in each family that adopts a rescue and they are there for us every step of the way. It's not a rescue organization that once you adopt the animal you are on your own. You become part of an ever growing family and support system.

ARME and BFP has changed the lives in my home forever In a positive way. The people that work for this non profit are outstanding and go above and beyond anyone's expectations. We currently have two dogs and two kittens that we have adopted through these nonprofits. They know no boundaries as they rescue any animal worldwide. We have a dog named "Elvis" that was rescued by BFP from a laboratory testing facility and he is our sweet, sweet boy. We have our other dog "Omid" that was rescued by ARME all the way from Iran. I mean come on Iran!!!What? Like I said they rescue locally and from around the globe. He is so full of life. Our most recent adoption was two kittens from ARME Mickey and Mallory and they are cuteness overload. The people that work for these nonprofits are not just people you deal with once and never hear from again. They become family. They are there for you when you need them and that's a rare thing. They have truly created something special and everyone should know about them.

Such an amazing group working so hard to free animals being tested on. They do amazing work and are raising awareness that is making a difference. Hopefully we'll get to the point where they are no longer needed.

ARME & BFP are top notch animal rescue organizations. They are heads above many others I have encountered over the years. They are smart, compassionate, know how to fundraise & support the animals and those fostering and adopting the animals as much as possible with information, education etc. They also are doing wonders with bringing forward public awareness in a good way that doesn't turn people off to the cause but lights a fire in them. LOVE this group of wonderful wonderful people. I have fostered and adopted dogs thru BFP and have helped with a couple of transports of recently released animals. I will spend time doing outreach as much as possible and back them when ever I can. Love them to the moon and back. I am adding a couple of photos of the Ex Laboratory Research Dogs that my family adopted after fostering. The are our loves. Emma is the Beagle she was a rescue of 2 known as The San Francisco Treats rescued in July 2014 and Copper

Beagle Freedom Project is a top notch, well ran organization. I came upon them last year and have been following their continued growth within their Mission. I became a foster parent and subsequent adoptive parent of a recent beagle released from a northern California laboratory. Having worked in the animal veterinary field for many years earlier in my life as well as raised, trained and competed with my own beagles over the years this group has it down and is doing a great job of educating the public about their cause as well as promoting more laboratory releases to be released to them for rehabilitation and future re homing. The support that the volunteers get from BFP is extraordinary. The work at changing the laws that they are doing is also extraordinary.

I LOVE Beagle Freedom Project and am proud to be associated with them.
