The Impact

Your Annual Subscription

Beagle Freedom Project rescues animals from laboratory testing and experimentation. Subscribe to EarthStream to help.

Most of these animals have been violently degraded by having a federal identification number tattooed inside their ears. This number is all they are ever known by and to further desensitize those testing on them to only see them as a piece of property with which to inflict pain and suffering…. Not a real, living, feeling being, like the dogs with whom we share our home, our beds and our lives with.

When we rescue these dogs from these places, we give them their identity. We give them a name. Something they have never had…..

Your annual subscription to EarthStream gives them just that – IDENTITY.

Film Synopsis

Enter SANCTUARY: an emotionally touching glimpse into the lives of our primate brothers and sisters… Their right to life, happiness, and freedom are ironically stolen by their human relatives who aspire to achieve the same in life.

This beautiful documentary takes the viewer into the lives of Puchi, Chucky, Jimmy Sr., Chaac and Bali. Each of their stories will tug at your heart and inspire you to dig deep into your soul, and realize that any chance of human redemption is to give them SANCTUARY.

See the world through their eyes from captivity to being rescued, from exploitation and abuse to rehabilitation and learning to trust…From sadness to happiness. SANCTUARY will also give you hope in humanity through the compassionate work of those that gave everything to ensure these primates have a second chance. Narrated by Victoria Summer and produced by Shannon Keith, this is a story of the human-animal conflict that must be examined and brought to mainstream awareness. The take-away from this film…It is within all of us to take action and right a wrong.
