These Beagles spent their whole lives in laboratory cages being used for animal testing, but this video documents the rescue of 38 dogs from across the US.

They were saved by the Beagle Freedom Project, and they’re shown feeling grass under their paws for the first time.

The dogs were due to be euthanised after the labs no longer needed them, but since the rescue they have all been adopted by loving families!
