Beagles are the most popular breed for lab use because of their friendly, docile,trusting, forgiving, people-pleasing personalities.

Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) began in December 2010 when Shannon Keith received information that beagles who were used for animal experiments in a research lab were to be given a chance at freedom. BFP rescues and finds homes for beagles used in laboratory research.


Aroo Studio, a California based company, creates handmade, eco-friendly dog collars and leashes. We have partnered up with BFP to create a hemp collar and leash set inspired by the many beagles that have been rescued from laboratory testing facilities by BFP, and to raise funds to for BFP to continue this important work. Aroo Studio will donate 20% of the proceeds from The Beagle Freedom Project collars & leashes directly to BFP, funding the care of beagles that desperately need your help.


In order to get this project up and and running, we are raising money to cover the cost of the custom ribbon needed to create collars and leashes to benefit BFP. Aroo Studio is covering the cost of all other supplies and manufacturing of collars and leashes, as well as matching key chains and ID tags.


The BFP collars and leashes will feature strong, durable, hemp webbing for 1 inch wide sizes, and sturdy yet soft cotton webbing for 3/4 inch sizes. For examples of collars, leashes, key chains & Id tags, please visit the Aroo Studio website. These collars are long lasting and tough, machine washable, and comfortable for your pet. 


The project funding will allow for the design and production of custom ribbon with a beagle theme. Thank you gifts are available at each donation amount level (to be completed once the BFP products are available). Thanks for your support in this project!

Thanks again to all who donated! All thank you gifts should have arrived to you if you live in the U.S. Outside the U.S., please be patient as it can take up to 8 weeks at times to clear customs. If you have not gotten your thank you gift, it could be because I never received your mailing address and/or your thank you gift choices. Please respond if you are in the U.S. and have not yet received your gift! If you are not in the U.S., please allow a little extra time, and you can contact me at any point to check in.
