The fact that animals are being used in labs everywhere for all kinds of research works. However, it’s still not the right thing to do.

And the loyal and kind natured dogs are used more often in such research because according to The Humane Society of the United States, “they’re easier to manipulate and less apt to fight back.”


“Often, dogs are cooperative test subjects because the only attention and interaction they get are when they’re being experimented on,” they wrote.

The Humane Society of the United States has contributed continuously in rescuing dogs who have been trapped in labs for the brutal tests.


One of the investigators of the HSUS recently revealed about a few studies, with a one- year test of pesticide on 36 Beagles by Dow AgroSciences at Charles River Laboratories, Mattawan, Michigan.

A video released after the investigation displays the fungicides being force-fed to the dogs at the lab. The dogs used for such tests are usually brought from large breeding facilities that are licensed by the USDA.


HSUS claims to have been trying to convince Dow to release the 36 dogs, since, the dogs, who won’t be killed from the test, are set to be euthanized by the first week of July.

The HSUS filmed one dog named Harvey during their investigation and followed his case. According to the lab workers, the reason for giving Harvey a name (which they usually don’t do for other dogs) was because he was “a good boy.”


Although the dog was very friendly, he has been through the most unbearable situation, along with many others. After the revelation of the investigation, Dow released a statement as a response to the report.


Although most dogs end up losing their lives in the laboratories, we are still hopeful that these 36 will survive!
