AFABILITY is the proud recipient of the Beagle Freedom Prize, 2017, to replace animal based research. The Beagle Freedom Project is a global leader in research, animal rescue and advocacy. Founded in 2010, BFP is a unique program run by the Los Angeles-based non-profit Animal Rescue, Media, and Education (ARME). Beagle Freedom Project negotiates with laboratories across the world to secure the release of dogs and other animals and give them a chance at a normal home life after everything they have endured for vanity and scientific curiosity.

BFP spent six months advertising and accepting research applications from across the world. Working with scientific peers in each relevant field to evaluate and guide the judging process, the charity chose four exceptional and diverse proposals that have the potential to replace animal based research with more effective and humane alternatives

FRAME’s vision is a world where non-animal methods are accepted as scientific best practice. Its Mission is to support the timely development and implementation of scientifically valid methods which will provide reliable data and replace the need for animal experiments.

FRAME believes in the development of better scientific methods for the benefit of humans, animals and the environment. Its ultimate aim is the elimination of the need to use laboratory animals in any kind of medical or scientific procedures, but FRAME accepts that a total end to their use cannot be achieved immediately. However, the current scale of animal experimentation is unacceptable. Where the use of animals is currently necessary, FRAME supports the reduction of numbers involved to an unavoidable minimum, and refinement of the experimental procedures to minimise any suffering caused.

Through its own laboratory and desk-based research FRAME is continually investigating and developing new methods at the forefront of science. It also collaborates with other organisations, industry and laboratories across a wide range of biological and medical fields.
