Rescued dogs celebrate freedom this Independence Day

Posted: Updated:

Call them ?The Freegles.?

Just in time for Independence Day, 120 rescued beagles were introduced to cooing crowds today at a Middletown animal shelter.

After a daring rescue that crossed state lines, the dogs were freed from a much darker fate. Officials say they were abandoned and locked inside the laboratory of a bankrupt New Jersey testing facility.

Volunteers are expected to shower the pups with love at the Pets Alive animal shelter, where they?ll also be spayed, neutered and given medical attention.

To adopt a beagle or any animal from Pets Alive, call 845-386-9338 or visit PetsAlive.com.
