Last week, WCW blew the lid off of secretive and wasteful government experiments on dogs with our new Spending to Death investigative report and launched our bipartisan advocacy campaign to end these abuses at a standing-room-only Congressional briefing co-hosted by Republican and Democrat members of Congress.
Our novel approach to ending forced taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs and other animals has been making waves and has garnered positive coverage in some of the most influential media outlets in the world.

Our work also attracted attention from one of the world’s most influential scientific publications, Science. In a feature about WCW and our new campaign, they wrote:
White Coat Waste [is] a new, unlikely coalition of fiscal conservatives and liberal activists that aims to end federal funding for research involving dogs and other animals by targeting people’s pocketbooks in addition to their heartstrings.
Here is full-text of the article.
