Following a WCW exposé documenting that the Cleveland Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center experimented on and killed dogs it told reporters it “adopted out,” the VA is being urged to create a formal policy allowing dogs to be adopted out from its laboratories.
In a letter to VA Secretary Shulkin last week, Reps. Ted Lieu (D-CA), Dan Donovan (R-NY), Dave Brat (R-VA), Brian Mast (R-FL) and Dina Titus (D-NV) inquired about existing policies and procedures for releasing dogs from the VA’s experimentation facilities and encouraged Shulkin to adopt out healthy dogs to veterans.

Take a moment to write your Congress members and urge them to support the bipartisan PUPPERS Act to end taxpayer funding for the most painful dog experiments at the VA.
