Rescue a Beagle in Contra Costa County, California: 8 Beagles Need Homes ASAP! - 02/14/10 12:44 AM
Chris Fisher's post about the 8 beagles that need homes ASAP is quite sad. The dogs ranging from 1 to 5 years old, have been used in laboratory tests. The lab is done with them and the beagles will be euthanized, unless rescuer's come to the dogs aid. Please read Chris's post. These poor dogs do not deserve to die & to only have known life as a test animal in a laboratory cage. Please help them......their time is running out.
