How You Can Help

There are lots of ways of helping us out at Beagle Freedom Australia.  Adoption is just one way, and is a very big, even life changing commitment. So if you can’t adopt, there are many other ways too! Foster Care, Donations and Fundraisers are just a few examples, but possibly most importantly is to spread the word and educate your friends, family members and work colleagues about animal testing.

Choosing Cruelty Free

When you donate your hard earned money, only donate it to approved, cruelty free charities that do not fund research which includes animal testing, you can find an extensive Australian list here;

When purchasing cosmetics and household products, choose those which have not been tested on animals, you can find a comprehensive list of Australian approved companies and brands here:

Consider a vegan lifestyle. Save hundreds of additional animals every year. Factory farmed animals are as capable of suffering, and as deserving of our compassion, as the pets we love. An easy way to start can be found at with lots of support and information available.

Foster Care

We desperately need careers who understand the beagle breed and are willing to open up their homes to those beagles in need, to help them recover or heal from their past lives and to get them ready to live out their years happy and healthy in their new homes. 

Beagle Freedom Australia will cover all medical costs and cover food for those that need special dietary requirements, all dogs are temperament tested desexed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm, flea and worm treated prior to going into foster care. 

If you are interested in being a foster carer please email us at

TAKE ACTION - Sign a Petition

Show the ‘Powers that be’ that your voice is mighty! Support one of our ongoing campaigns to make the world a better place for laboratory animals. Of course, the main goal is to end animal testing for good, but that road is long and we can still make a difference in small steps along the way. 

Right to Release

This is a simple, common-sense, and compassionate proposal to help rescue animals from research laboratories.

The legislation facilitates a relationship between laboratories registered not-for-profit animal rescue groups so that when the animals are no longer needed they can be placed up for public adoption.

End Pound Seizure

POUND SEIZURE is the practice of animal shelters or pounds selling or giving dogs and cats to laboratories to use in research.

Help us introduce legislation to ban pound seizure and continue the fight against animal testing!

Minimum Retirement Age

More often than not, the animals we help are near the end of their short lives. We want to introduce a retirement age for dogs and cats used in research and teaching, giving them a longer life outside the lab to enjoy their new family’s and new lives.
