Ridglan Farms is a dog breeding and research facility in Wisconsin that raises beagles for cruel experiments. A few years ago, DxE investigators entered the facility and documented the filthy conditions and the psychological trauma of the dogs spinning endlessly inside small cages. The team rescued three beagles. Although the investigation and rescue happened years ago, the charging documents were filed in August 2021. No hearing dates have been set yet, but our legal team is working on the case. This is an important opportunity to show the world the horrors inflicted on humankind’s supposed best friend and to move toward ending experimentation on dogs and other animals.
