WIN: U.S. House votes to extend VA dog testing defund

Earlier this year, after a robust White Coat Waste Project campaign and bipartisan leadership from Congress, President Trump signed the fiscal year 2018 government funding bill that defunded all dog experimentation at the Department of Veterans Affairs save for rare instances with Secretary-level approval.


Now, following advocacy by WCW and veterans’ groups, a bipartisan request from over 50 federal lawmakers led by Reps. Dave Brat (R-VA) and Dina Titus (D-NV), and leadership from VA spending panel leader Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the House of Representatives has voted once again to extend the defund and restrictions on VA’s “maximum pain” tests and other agency experiments on dogs and puppies. Congress is also requiring a report from the VA on its dog experimentation program.

Urge Congress to pass the bipartisan PUPPERS Act to permanently stop the VA from using your tax dollars to fund wasteful and inhumane dog experiments.
