Just three weeks after White Coat Waste Project exposed flagrant dog abuse, transparency failures and accountability deficiencies by experimentation laboratories at the McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Richmond, Virginia, the VA’s Office of Inspector General has confirmed that it, “has opened a case based on a review of the information [WCW] reported to our office.” The Daily Caller broke the story about the new development. 

The IG’s action also follows pressure from a growing bipartisan coalition of Congress members who are concerned that the VA is abusing dogs in wasteful experiments, failing to disclose details of the projects and not adequately holding experimenters who violate animal welfare laws accountable.

Please send an email to your members of Congress and urge them to end cruel, secretive and wasteful dog experiments at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
