White Coat Waste Project, Republicans and Democrats in Congress and more than 350,000 taxpayers are urging the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to end its cruel and unnecessary experiments on dogs. Now, the brave military veterans that the VA is supposed to be serving are speaking out against this waste and abuse.

More than 20 military veterans started a petition at Change.org urging VA Secretary David Shulkin to end the agency’s experiments on dogs that involve inducing heart attacks in puppies, drilling into dogs’ skulls, and crippling them with spinal cord injuriesThe Daily Caller just reported that the petition has now attracted more than 60,000 signatures in just its first week.

In the petition, the veterans write:

The VA’s painful and deadly experiments on dogs are a betrayal of these loyal animals who literally save soldiers’ lives on and off the battlefield. These projects also waste resources desperately needed to provide veterans with care and services.

If you haven’t already, please sign this important petition to support these veterans’ campaign to protect dogs, troops and taxpayers.

What kind of person can perform a profession of routinely torturing and killing animals? These “professional” are a menace to a humane society and must be stopped.
