Press Kit

The Rescue + Freedom Project (RFP) is a US based non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing survivors of unique captivity and cruelty and telling their emotionally compelling stories to prompt social change and celebrate a rescue lifestyle.

Since 2010 the charity has been freeing survivors from laboratory experiments, senior and special needs animals from shelters, and victims of horrific abuse from around the world.

Media engagement is a primary conduit to tell the stories of these survivors. RFP’s rescue, legislative, and advocacy work has been covered by CBS News, NBC Nightly News, The LA Times, The Washington Post, CNN, HLN, Politico, and scores of local affiliates and regional press outlets.

Compelling visuals often include the first steps of freedom for newly saved laboratory beagles and other animals rescued from abuse. High profile celebrity supporters include Miley Cyrus, Sia, Whitney Cummings, Andy Cohen, and Lara Trump, amongst others.

All animals are individuals who feel pain. Most suffer in silence, and therefore, it is not only our job, but our responsibility, to speak out for them and take action to protect them, no matter the cost, no matter the distance, no matter. These are our dogs and they deserve better.
