Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary Rescues Over 100 Beagles From Research Lab In Texas

Over 100 beagles are experiencing kindness, love, and fresh air for the first time in their lives.

Kindness Ranch Animal Sanctuary, a 1,000 acre sanctuary in Wyoming for former research animals, just completed their largest rescue effort by transporting over 100 retired laboratory dogs to the sanctuary from a research lab in Houston, Texas.

After weeks of communication with the lab, the sanctuary’s executive director, John Ramer, received the good news that the dogs would be surrendered to them instead of being euthanized.

But they had only five days to coordinate the long distance transportation.

“This is great news, but is a little overwhelming. The logistics involved in bringing the doggies to Kindness Ranch has been challenging, but we did not hesitate,” wrote the sanctuary.

The rescue mission was a success thanks to the dedicated team at Kindness Ranch and two other sanctuaries, Guardians of Rescue from New York and Priceless Pets from Southern California, who stepped up to help transport and care for the dogs.

All of the beagles are getting acclimated to their new surroundings with many adjusting quickly. Just one day after they arrived at the sanctuary, many were doing zoomies around their kennels and greeting staff with wagging tails and happy barks.

The sanctuary posted photos and videos of the adorable dogs and said, “We think the transition is already going fantastically well!”

The dogs have never experienced compassion or grass, until now. They have lived in solitude and been subjected to cruel tests at the hands of humans.

One of the rescue dogs named Arizona is bringing a smile to everyone’s face with her exuberance. The dogs will spend the next few weeks and months learning how great life can be.

The sanctuary is asking for donations and dog food to help care for and feed all the extra dogs. People can purchase and send dog food through their Chewy Wish List.

They are overwhelmed by the support and generosity of their followers and said, “If there were a thousand ways to say THANK YOU, we would use every one! We are grateful that we are able to give safe haven to these pups, and it wouldn’t happen without people like YOU!”

The rescued beagles will be ready for their forever homes around the holidays, reports the sanctuary.
