A hard-hitting new cover story in the top U.S. military newspaper Stars and Stripes–which is available at bases around the world–details White Coat Waste Project’s new “Prisoners of Waste” campaign to expose and end abusive and wasteful experiments on dogs at Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.) laboratories.

The piece chronicles WCW’s bipartisan work to increase transparency and accountability about the V.A.’s deadly heart failure experiments on mixed-breed puppies, invasive brain experiments on beagles and other secretive, multi-million-dollar taxpayer-funded horrors.

In the past week, our new investigation of animal welfare violations and disclosure failures at the V.A. has been the subject of national media coverage, bipartisan Congressional action, and even raised during a congressional hearing.

Please join WCW, Congress and hundreds of thousands of fellow taxpayers by emailing your Members of Congress and asking them to end cruel, secretive and wasteful government dog experiments.
