He is now embarking on a new path as Campaign and Policy Director at the Beagle Freedom Project. Listen and learn why 96% of dogs used in research are beagles,. Hear about the many other avenues that are already available for research. Why animal reserach continues despite its many drawbacks. And what can we all do to obtain cruelty-free products.
Tune in as Matt takes us on a journey of discovery from the despair of vivesection, that Gandhi called the blackest of all crimes, to a vision for a brighter future for all research animals.
