Taxpayer-funded animal laboratories have no problem spending more than $12 billion of your money each year to torment dogs, monkeys and other animals in useless experiments.

Now, as reported in the Huffington Post, a new White Coat Waste Project exposé reveals that these laboratories are desperately fighting to keep profiting off of animals and taxpayers even when their experiments are over.

This summer, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced its long-awaited plans to send all 350 federally-owned chimpanzees still in laboratories to the federal chimpanzee sanctuary. This is great news for taxpayers who have been footing the bill for cruel, expensive and unnecessary experiments on these great apes for decades.

But, lobbying documents obtained by WCW reveal that the last two federally-funded laboratories that imprison these soon-to-be-retired chimpanzees have been fighting to keep the chimpanzees forever and the nearly $5 million in taxpayer funds they collect each year to imprison them.

We’re fighting to expose and STOP all taxpayer-funding for these heartless and greedy laboratories.
