Dogs locked in taxpayer-funded government testing labs have it rough, but thankfully they have friends in high places speaking up for them. President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump–a passionate advocate for the welfare of veterans and dogs–is lending her voice to the campaign to pass the PUPPERS Act and stop wasteful and cruel dog experiments at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
In a USA Today interview about White Coat Waste Project’s work with Congress to stop this waste and abuse, Mrs. Trump–who shares her home with two rescued beagles, Charlie and Ben–said:
Lawmakers leading the charge on the PUPPERS Act applauded Mrs. Trump for her advocacy:
Technology evolves faster than government processes, and we have neglected technologies that would give us testing information so we can continue painful animal testing, and that’s silly.

Thank you @LaraLeaTrump for supporting our work to prevent painful – and sometimes deadly – experimentation on dogs at the VA! Together, we can put an end to this abuse of animals and taxpayer dollars! https://t.co/ZnPpNmFVGy

Join Mrs. Trump and urge your Congress members to cosponsor the bipartisan PUPPERS Act to permanently cut federal funding for all painful dog experiments at the VA.
