Neighbors of the McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) in Richmond, Virginia had no idea that inside the facility puppies are forced to run on treadmills until they collapse in painful and deadly heart failure experiments.  That’s changed with White Coat Waste Project’s recent national exposé of abuses at McGuire VAMC including fatal botched surgeries on dogs by a “reckless” experimenter, oversight failures, and federal disclosure violations.

Award-nominated reporter Kerri O’Brien at Richmond’s ABC affiliate WRIC investigates the controversy for this in-depth segment, and discusses WCW’s bipartisan work with Congress to expose and end these taxpayer-funded abuses.


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 Veterans Affairs dog experiments.
