Ricky Gervais and Peter Egan introduce Scarlett, Beagle Ambassador for FLOE

We are delighted that Ricky Gervais and Peter Egan are featured in the first Welfare Special Edition of K9 Magazine, with a very special rescued laboratory dog, Scarlett, who is joining us as Beagle Ambassador for FLOE.

Scarlett spent the first two years of her life as an experimental subject in a toxicology laboratory. To read more about the conditions and experiments laboratory dogs have to endure please visit this link.

Scarlett will be helping Ricky and Peter call for a rigorous public scientific debate about claims that experiments on dogs – and other animals – can predict the responses of human patients.
