Stop Killing Snoopy – The Slaughter of Beagles in America

I’m sick.

No, it’s not what you think – I’m fine. I didn’t eat anything bad over Thanksgiving.

I’m sick because one of our readers told me about a company she accidentally found on the internet. A company that is selling beagles and beagle parts for research.

Think of Snoopy? The dog everyone loved from Peanuts.

Now think of a company called Bioreclamation.

These people sell Beagle parts.

Want a beagle uterus, beagle spleen, beagle stomach, beagle spinal cord?

All we have to do is kill another Beagle in the name of research.

They raise these beagles is cages until someone calls the company and says, “I need some Beagle skin.”

Beagle skin grows on…beagles.

And there’s only one way to get the beagle skin.

It involves killing Snoopy.

So I did a little bit of research myself and do you know what I found out?

(It will make you sick, too.)

Researchers like to use beagles for research for the same reason people like to have them as family pets: they are friendly, trusting, docile, and eager to please. I’m not a beagle, but I’m kinda the same way.

Imagine what kinds of monsters are keeping hundreds of beagles in cages all their lives to test things like mascara on them!

I found pictures of restrained beagles forced to chain-smoke cigarettes through face masks.

At the University of Pennsylvania, beagles were bred specifically to have a certain eye disease that makes them go blind. These 3-week old puppies had their eyes cut out and dissected and then they were killed. If that wasn’t bad enough, when the results of the research weren’t what the fellow had hoped for, he lied about them. All those puppies died for nothing. That made me sick.

Sometimes they take out the dogs’ vocal chords so their barks and cries don’t disturb the lab technicians.

More than 75,000 dogs are used for research each year in the United States alone.

And it’s legal. Can you believe it?

In fact, animal research is not only legal and protected by the federal government, but it’s required! Reputable animal research facilities work with the USDA and have to follow strict policies.

Still, I found this video of beagles that were rescued from a “reputable” lab. They had never been outside, never stepped foot on grass or seen sunlight. They were terrified to leave their cages – the only homes they had ever known.

Those beagles may not have been beaten or starved, by law they wouldn’t be considered abused. But in my opinion, they were definitely mistreated if they never left cages their entire lives!

So what can you do about it?

Well, like I said, testing on beagles is perfectly legal (gulp) but you can do me and my beagle friends a favor by using products from companies that don’t test on animals! Some of them print a leaping bunny logo on their packaging. Click here to find a list of cruelty-free products.

And there are beagle rescue groups, who work with these laboratories to find suitable homes for retired research beagles:

Beagle Freedom Project

Beagle Rescue League

Cascade Beagle Rescue

How do you feel about beagles being used for research? Does it make you sick, too?

Does it make you sick enough to pick up the phone and call someone?

Please, look into my eyes and take action.

Beagle Puppies Like This Are Killed At Bioreclamation In NY.

Well here’s the number to call:

Bioreclamation, LLC
Phone: (516) 483-1196

Please call them.

Tell all of your friends to call them.

And when someone answers please say, “Stop Killing Snoopy! Stop Killing Beagles!”

But do not insult them. Do not threaten them. That could be a violation of the law.

And please, leave a comment below – even just the words – “Stop Killing Snoopy”.

And please like this post so your friends can see it.

Share it all over the Internet.

Let’s all save Snoopy. Please help.

    This is very sad. I think of my own dog when I read this. Beagles should be protected from this torture.

    STOP KILLING BEAGLES and all animals being innocently tested on!!!! If tests need to be done in an inhumane way, test on the men and women rotting in prison for doing inhumane things, like child/animal abuse, murder, etc.

    STOP killing these innocent beautiful animals. They feel pain fear confusion and hopelessness just as we do. I look at my Beagle girl and could never imagine doing anything to cause her harm. In this day and age we no longer need to experiment on any living creature. Please stop this sick torture so no more animals need to suffer.

You people are sheep and dont know whats really going on try saving humanity how about the premptive strikes made on the middle east and pakistan any people here cry for that?

      You are an ignorant fuck. Dogs have feelings and emotions and can feel pain. Let’s stick your fat ass in a cage and poke and prod you so we can test lipstick or air freshener or cut your vocal cords out because most of what comes out of your mouth is heartless.

    this article made me so sad 🙁 As an owner of a retired research dog I cannot even bare to read articles like this. How could people do this? I have the sweetest, most loving little beagle in the world – I cannot imagine people doing this who have a conscience.

    All animal testing should be banned – we have a beagle, so I am especially sensitive to testing on “Snoopy” as it were, but it is no less cruel on any animal – fur coats are another thing that should be banned

  14. Leslie

    Dec 3, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    I hate people that do any kind of harm to poor defenseless animals. This story truly made me sick to my stomach. I think that the monsters that do this to these poor animals should be the ones to have the testing done on them.
    I did call the number given above and yelled “Stop Killing Beagles” and of course they just hung up on me. Why isn’t this company shut down? This should be made illegal!
    Come on FDA make this illegal…yeah right! How can the people that work in these labs live with themselves? These are cruel and uncaring sub-humans! I hope that you people that are doing this suffer from some catastrophic and painful illness…and die a horrible death!

    Just stop. Stop proving that humans are the most sadistic, cruel, inhumane, egotistical creatures on this earth. “In the name of science” is not a reason for cruelty. As technilogically advanced as we are, animal testing belongs in the dark ages. Leave it there.

    Stop killing SNOOPY! This is outrageous! GOD did not put these animals on earth for people like you to torture! It is INHUMANE! There is no need for testing on these innocent animals!I will be sure NEVER to buy any products that are sponsored by a company that approves of this type of treatment to animals!

  18. Ellen Anon

    Please stop the totally unnecessary torture of all types of animals in the name of research. Surely most testing could be done without abusing, torturing, and killing animals.

    It is so hard to leave a comment with being angry and saying things that will Bby the Grace of God, please stop killing the great little dogs. You take out the eyes of the puppie then you kill it. No life for being a test drive.
    God have mercy on your souls. Sounds like you never bonded with a dog or even your mother. I don’t care what you belive in, that is on you.But you will be held accountable in some way, some day. I LOVE all creaturesof God. Even Man. Why is man so cold and cruel?

    I am sickened to know that this is still going on. Animals are not like humans, therefore, how they react to certain chemicals, medicines, cigarettes,etc. is not going to be the same as a human. I say, and I know others who would agree, that using inmates instead (who are human)may be another option. Let them at least be of some use to us, instead of just wasting away in a prison. Animals have no voice and we have to be the ones who speak for them. It’s time to come up with better ways of testing, period.

    Beagles are ment to be pets and they make excellent hunting dogs, now why in the world would people want to kill an amazing animal in the name of science I will never understand. There are plenty of murders on death row, why not use them. There gonna rott anyway. Stop using our animals!

  27. Gail Human

    Nov 30, 2012 at 8:52 am

    This is horrendous! Animals cannot speak for themselves, although I have seen a few try. Stop the testing and killing…it is not fair or right to do this to a creature that cannot say “Stop”. I don’t understand how a person that can do that do an animal can sleep at night. Lord help this sorry world!

    Thank you for printing this article. After doing more research I discovered this is not the only company that sells “Beagle Samples”. There are other companies that not only sell “Beagle Samples” but they sell “Primate Samples” as well. This is so sad and disturbing that it is OK in our Animal Welfare Act to do this. The torture and pain these animals go through is all for some companies bottom line to show a profit.

    Reading this literally made me sick!
    I do my best to purchase cruelty-free products that are not tested on animals but will have to kick my efforts up a notch.

    These disgusting excuses for people will be receiving a call from me later!

    Are you fucking kidding me! Its the 21st century and people are still doing this inhumane cruelty. What type of “PATHETIC SPECIMENS OF HUMANITY” are doing this. Where are the authorities, or PETA! Isn’t there a news reporter with some balls to expose this on a larger scale! W.T.F. OVER! Even Hitler loved his pet german shepards! C’mon somebody help. These fuckers need to be strung up by their balls!!!

    Barbaric! Haven’t we researched enough? We have plenty of knowledge of what all these chemicals do. We’re a supposedly intelligent species, make educated “guesses” about how the world began and call it fact. Too many innocent animals of all breeds and species have suffered already. Stop the sickening madness.

  36. Michele Bolda

    Nov 29, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    Please stop killing these wonderful animals. It is too cruel, barbaric.
    There are other ways to do testing. Please find other alternatives.

    Thank you for sharing this information with your readers. So many people are unaware of this reality, and though it is grassroots, this is a great way to spread the knowledge. I adopted a Beagle from the Beagle Freedom Project (Bogart)and I share his story with anyone and everyone who will stand still long enough to listen. 9 times out of 10 people are shocked and horrified to hear about the life that my Beagle endured before being rescued. I truly don’t know about the other Beagle rescues, but I do know for certain that Beagle Freedom Project is not only rescuing these lab dogs and placing them in loving homes, but they are out there tirelessly trying to change legislation and THAT is truly the only way to end animal testing. Everyone can do something. No matter how small the gesture, we can make a difference. Thank you for doing your part!

    I can’t stop the tears. Those poor babies were unable to walk properly. Bless everyone involved in saving these Beautiful Babies. I will never understand how anyone can hurt an inocent beautiful animal, when ALL they want from you is a little bit of attention, in return they give you more LUV than you can imagine, [Animals are 99.9% Heart] It takes next to nothing to make them happy.

    This seems to be in line with the belief most people hold that the world is ours to use and abuse. That’s horse shit and the vermin that are committing these atrocities are profit driven scumbags who could care less about the sanctity of life, human or animal. My hope is the hell they create comes back to them a hundred fold.

    try doing this to a human and ask them if they’ll like it. I love beagles; I love Snoopy. slaughter the humans doing this to defenseless beagles..

    by far, the world’s most dangerous being is the species called HUMANS. shark attacks, lion/tiger mauls, and snake poisons pale in comparison to human’s greed.

    please someone, answer a question for me. why, oh, why, do they have to make animals chain smoke via a mask? we already know what it does. it makes no sense. STOP, STOP, STOP USING ANIMALS FOR RESEARCH, STOP USING THEM, STOP THE CRUEL TREATMENT AND STOP KILLING THEM!!!

    As I read this article, I sat here and cried! After reacing it, I got up and hugged all 5 of my Beagles that are sleeping on my bed beside me. I know that animals have been used in the past for experimental reasons, but the thought of what those poor dogs go through made me sick! There has to be a better way to test new products besides on animals!!! PLEASE,STOP KILLING BEAGLES!!!! And, stop killing other innocent animals as well! The phrase,” I need some Beagle skin”, actually made my skin crawl- I can’t imagine having a job like that. The only thing I know for sure is that one day, they will answer to God for the torture they took part of on this earth….. and I wish it was today!! Stop it!!!

    This is heart breaking and cant believe this exisists! I pray for this to stop now! This cruelty is unacceptable and something needs to be done to save these precious innocent beings! So very repulsive and my spirit is dying just knowing about this! I will let everyone know about this…everyone needs to know so they stop buying animal tested products. I’ve gotten my leaping bunny product list through the mail for free and there is so much to choose from so there’s no excuse to not buy cruelty free!

    Will you really be able to face your maker one day after living like this? How do you face your family, especially your children? Do you realize that you’re no better and probably worse than Michael Vick in what you’re doing versus what he did and how people feel about it? Do your family and children know what you do for money? For money? You take innocent, trusting, loving living beings lives for money? Do you think that you will ever be truly happy or prosper in life doing this?

      There is, actually. People can create virtual sims for drug testing. They can run long-term projections; they can add options to see what happens with different genetic configurations. We would have better drugs. They would be lower cost because there would be fewer class-action suits. The world would be less barbaric.

    This makes me sick and it makes me even more sick that this crap is allowed. What is this world coming to? How about we do that to humans….It’s not different than doing that to animals. And people wonder why people do the evil stuff they do. This world is full of evilness and i’m not ok with that.
