Beagles Rescued from Bankrupt Laboratory by christine

Operation: Agitate to Liberate

On June 1, 2010, Win Animal Rights launched Operation: Agitate to Liberate to free the 125 beagles and 55 monkeys endangered by the closure of Azopharma, owner of Oxford, NJ based Aniclin Preclinical Services.  We are please to announce that 30 days after the commencement of our campaign, and after having overcome all obstacles and objections, we are declaring victory.  On June 30, 2010, a Missouri court issued an order allowing the release of all the Azopharma/AniClin animals to sanctuaries and foster homes.

**Watch the video! It’s uplifting to see these animals set free and know that animal rights can be achieved, and yet, it is utterly heartbreaking to watch these beagles walk on grass for the first time.


120 Beagles Liberated on July 2, 2010
& 55 Monkeys will be Liberated because of you!

Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen!

While the 120-something odd beagles living at the facility were not used for invasive testing, their lives were far from idyllic. The beagles had a champion in Camille Hankins of Win Animal Rights, who followed their plight from research subjects to refugees. The economic downturn took its toll on the research laboratory and these lives were left in limbo until the wheels of the beagle freedom train started spinning.
