White Coat Waste Project has exposed how the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has been using your tax dollars to conduct wasteful and painful experiments on dogs. VA's experiments include giving 6-month-old hound puppies heart attacks
, drilling into
beagles' skulls, and severing "friendly" dogs'
spinal cords. The VA is the only agency conducting "maximum pain" experiments
on dogs in which significant pain is unrelieved.
Urge your Congress members to cosponsor the bipartisan Preventing Unkind and Painful Procedures and Experiments on Respected Species (PUPPERS) Act (HR 1155) to permanently stop taxpayers' money from being spent on the VA's wasteful and cruel dog experiments.
