Snoopy has been an ambassador for Beagle Freedom Project (BFP) for some time, but the release of “The Peanuts Movie” this fall has given him another chance to help spread awareness about the rescue organization. At Comic Con in San Diego July 9, 20th Century Fox invited BFP to bring some Beagles to hang out in the doggie playpen portion of Snoopy’s big red house. BFP got in touch with previous adopters, who were more than happy to bring their rescued, now freed Beagles to the event.
The dogs were allowed to play with each other, Snoopy-themed dog toys, and interact with anyone who was interested. Happily, tons of people took the opportunity to pet and hug the dogs, and to learn more about the work BFP does to prevent animal testing and cruelty. All of this helped spread awareness about Beagles in laboratories and BFP hopefully gained many supporters throughout the four day event. Some of the dogs even sported GoPro cameras to document the event from their own perspective. A live feed called the “Puppy Periscope” allowed Beagle lovers from all over to watch the event.
Two of the young women who voice characters in the upcoming movie — Francesca Capaldi (Little Red-Haired Girl) and Hadley Miller (Lucy)— were overjoyed to see the Beagles as well and posed for photos with them. We love that Snoopy and the rest of the “Peanuts” are using their movie promo to help Beagles everywhere! See more of the fantastic photos here:
