VIDEO: WCW’s 2017 Wins for Taxpayers and Animals

22 December 2017 | Addicted, Featured, Newsworthy, POW


In 2017, White Coat Waste Project revolutionized campaigns and scored historic wins to expose and stop $15 billion in secretive, wasteful and cruel taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs, monkeys, and other animals. None of this would have been possible without our generous and dedicated supporters who sent more than 600,000 messages to lawmakers in 2017.

Check out this year-end video highlighting WCW’s biggest accomplishments:


Here are WCW’s top 5 victories from 2017:

DOG LAB DEFUND: Following WCW exposés, successfully lobbied the U.S. House to unanimously defund the Department of Veterans Affairs’ most painful dog experiments

NO MORE MONKEY BUSINESS: Exposed and ended the Federal Drug Administration’s nicotine addiction experiments on baby monkeys

DOBERMANS OFF DEATH ROW: Exposed and ended methamphetamine experiments on narcoleptic Dobermans at the Los Angeles VA’s “House of Horrors” laboratory

FIRST STRIKE: Worked with Congress to introduce the first animal testing legislation of 2017, the bipartisan FACT Act

AUDITING ANIMAL ABUSE: Secured two historic audits of taxpayer-funded animal experiments: one on transparency about the government’s own animal testing and a second covering funding disclosure violations by NIH-funded university animal experimenters

Thank you for helping make 2017 a banner year for WCW and our campaigns to end wasteful taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs, monkeys, cats and all animals.
