Captive Animals Tasting Freedom For The First Time

From dogs and chimps to lions and tigers, animals are held in captivity by humans around the world. We harm them for lab experiments that often have better, cruelty-free alternatives. We keep exotic animals in rusty cages and call it “entertainment”.

But there is hope.

Huge-hearted humans dedicate their lives to rescuing, rehabilitating, and releasing injured animals to sanctuaries and the wild. And that moment when an animal gets his first taste of real freedom?

It is unforgettable for animals and humans alike.

Find out more about these freed animals here, and check out the Beagle Freedom Project, International Fund for Animal Welfare, Born Free USA, and the Humane Society of the U.S. to learn how to help.
