It’s Time To Cry: Rescued Beagles Have The Freedom To Run For The First Time

It's Time To Cry: Rescued Beagles Have The Freedom To Run For The First Time
Run, Beagles, Runnnnnn!!!!

I am so glad I worked from home today and am not wearing my meticulously applied black liquid eyeliner, because it would be completely ruined and streaming halfway down my face after watching this video. The Beagle Freedom Project is dedicated to rescuing the adorable breed from a life spent in cages as test subjects for laboratory research. Beagles are the most popular breed for such experiments because of their sweet, docile nature, and are often bred and sold by commercial breeders to scientific research labs for such purposes. The Beagle Freedom Project rescues those sweet pups and finds them loving forever homes. In the video above, watch as nine recently rescued beagles are brought outside and experience the freedom to run and frolic for the very first time. I’m simultaneously shedding tears of sadness and joy. RUN, SWEET BEAGLE BABIES, RUNNNN!!!!! And if you’re interested in more information on the Beagle Freedom Project, including adopting a beagle into your own family, click here. [via The Daily Dot]

Watch These Cats Go Totally “Mean Girls” On Each Other

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink

In every toxic friendship, one person is the Regina George while the other is her fan/underling who will do anything for her approval. Apparently, cats are no exception. Watch these kitties act like best friends until one of them abruptly changes her mind. Despite their drama, they’re totally adorable. [Tastefully Offensive]

Watch These Smiley Dogs Jamming To Pharrell’s “Happy”

Dream Life Status

I have seen a lot of animal videos in my time on this earth, but none of them have made me smile bigger than these dogs frolicking around in time with Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.” Didga the skateboarding cat even makes an appearance amongst all the canines. Pharrell should have put more overjoyed puppies in his original music video, because what’s more cheerful than that? And where do I show up to play on the beach with dogs all day? Sign me up!

Oh, But The Sweet, Perfect, Simple Wisdom Of A Dog!

What Dogs Can Teach Us
Now I REALLY want a dog!

Nat Johnson’s new song, “Dog,” is a sweet ode to how lovely it is to have a dog, inspired by all the happy dogwalkers she saw in the park near her home. The just-released music video is a beautiful animation that perfectly illustrates the song’s central theme: dogs can teach us so much. My favorite line: “It’s important to walk/there are friends left to meet.” Perfect. [Brain Pickings]

May The Fourth Be With You: 13 Adorable & Adoptable Dogs And Cats With “Star Wars” Doppelgangers

As you probably know, today is May 4, which means it’s “Star Wars” Day (“May the 4th be with you!”)! I love a nerdy holiday as much as I relish an opportunity to encourage and support pet adoption, so I jumped at the chance to share these photos of dogs and cats with their “Star Wars” doppelgangers — and they’re ALL available for adoption through the ASPCA. Writes the ASPCA: “We think these dogs and cats are out of this world. Some of them came to us ‘a long time ago’ and need to find a home ‘in a galaxy far far away’ from the shelter (or just around the block, we aren’t picky as long as they are loved).” The force is strong in these sweet furry babies! Click through to see them all and, if you see one that melts your heart, check out the corresponding link for their adoption page.
