Following White Coat Waste Project exposés documenting egregious animal abuses, transparency deficiencies and oversight failures in Department of Veterans Affairs (V.A.) dog experimentation laboratories, a coalition of Republicans and Democrats in Congress is taking decisive action to protect dogs, veterans, and taxpayers. 

This week, at an event co-hosted with WCW, Reps. Dave Brat (R-VA) and Dina Titus (D-NV) introduced their bipartisan PUPPERS Act (HR 3197), which would prohibit taxpayers’ money from being spent on painful dog experiments at the V.A. PUPPERS is an acronym that stands for Preventing Unkind and Painful Procedures and Experiments on Respected Species.

The development was covered in the Daily Caller, Roll Call, WRIC  and other outlets. 

Along with leads Reps. Brat and Titus, Reps. Brian Mast (R-FL, Army veteran), Dan Donovan (R-NY), Brendan Boyle (D-PA) and Ted Lieu (D-CA, USAF veteran) helped introduce the new bill.

It’s crucial that you urge your Members of Congress to support the PUPPERS Act to end taxpayer funding for painful experiments on dogs at the V.A.  Click below to send a personalized email now.
