AMVETS — one of the nation’s largest and most influential veterans groups representing more than 250,000 veterans — has joined WCW and more than a dozen other veterans’ organizations to denounce the Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) painful dog experiments.

In a letter to Congressional leaders with authority over the VA’s budget, AMVETS wrote:

“…the VA can make better use of its limited research funding by phasing out the unproductive dog testing that AMVETS members oppose and has left wounded and disabled veterans with fading hope by failing to produce significant breakthroughs over the last few decades.”

Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV), who introduced the PUPPERS Act in Congress alongside Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) to defund VA’s painful and wasteful dog tests, tweeted about AMVETS support:

Join the majority of veterans opposed to these experiments and help make sure your tax dollars aren’t spent on this waste and abuse. Take a moment to write your Congress members and urge them to support the bipartisan PUPPERS Act to cut federal funding for the most painful dog experiments at the VA.
