How would you like to own cool, affordable art that benefits beagles rescued from animal testing labs?! You would totally like to! Well, here is your chance! Adam Vass, the bassist for the band La Dispute and a vegan, is selling prints of this old-school tattoo-style piece to raise money for the Beagle Freedom Project (if you haven’t seen their amazing video of some rescue beagles taking their first steps into the sun, WATCH IT NOW. For real, watch it like yesterday).
This tip comes from reader Steph, who tells me Adam is donating 50 percent of proceeds from each print to the Beagle Freedom Project. The prints are selling at a steal for $15! You can get pretty art and help a great cause—everybody wins! Except the evil laboratories who can suck it!
This is a very bittersweet video and it contains no animal cruelty whatsoever [ed. note: so don’t be scared!]. These friendly lab beagles had lived in cages their entire lives and stepped on grass and saw the outdoors for the very first time. The poor things had no idea what to do with themselves, and were scared but curious. This video captured their very first experience on grass and being outdoors.
It’s so beautiful. They are now adjusting to their new lives and are able to live the way dogs should—as cherished family members [ed. note: Amen!]!
