Salem 10-year-old rescues product tested dog from lab


SALEM (WSLS 10) – A fifth grader in Roanoke County rescued a dog from a product testing lab.

Eva Brown has supported the Beagle Freedom project for months. It’s a non-profit rescuing dogs from laboratory testing.

Earlier this year, the Browns applied to adopt a dog through the Beagle Freedom Project and a few weeks ago they got the call to go pick up their new pup.

“We like to think we’re making a little bit of a difference just by taking her in and spreading awareness,” said Angela Brown, Eva’s mom.

Below is a picture of Eva announcing their new family addition is no longer a number and her name is Cate.
