Keith founded the BFP in 2010 in order to find loving homes for former research dogs. Since then, the organization has rescued beagles - a popular breed in research due to their "docile, trusting" nature - as well as many other breeds of dogs, such as huskies like Nate.
Keith told The Dodo that rescuing former lab dogs is the most rewarding job she's ever had. "After all they have endured for cosmetics, household products, pharmaceuticals and plain curiosities, they deserve something better than death, which is the norm." She hopes that labs will continue to cooperate with her organization, so the dogs can live the life they deserve.
