Beagle Freedom Project announces they have shut massive testing laboratory in Nowata, Oklahoma, , ending decades of cruel experimentation, and sparing thousands of dogs and cats from future testing and purpose breeding.

Beagle Freedom Project has taken over the 30-acre Oklahoma property and facilities where these animals were once held captive and tested on, and is transforming the space into a rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption center. More than 200 dogs and cats have been surrendered from this lab and liberated from a lifetime of toxic and painful experimentation, and they are safe with BFP at Freedom Fields! This is an unprecedented acquisition and rescue model that BFP hopes will offer others a pathway to help end all animal testing.

Freedom Fields is where the dogs, cats and farm animals Beagle Freedom Project rescues from animal testing will receive thorough medical care, nutritious food, safe and beautiful habitats, space to roam, and all the protection, love, play, enrichment, and freedom they deserve!
