Animals abused in government labs are lucky to have friends in high places fighting for their freedom.  White Coat Waste Project is proud to count Louise Linton–a consummate filmmaker, actor, philanthropist and humanitarian–among them.  Louise is a tireless advocate for the welfare of animals and humans, and recently founded the Louise Linton Charitable Fund to support organizations working on these issues.

L-R: Kia Freeman (Louise Linton Charitable Fund), Dr. Stacy Lopresti-Goodman (animal welfare expert and WCW adviser); U.S. Senator Susan Collins, Louise Linton, and WCW VP Justin Goodman.

 

Yesterday, Louise joined the WCW team for a meeting with Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) to thank her for her leadership on the bipartisan AFTER Act (aka Violet’s Law) to retire lab animals and discuss other ways to curb wasteful taxpayer-funded animal testing that’s opposed by most Americans. Since the 1990s, Sen. Collins has championed efforts to end government animal testing. Just last week, she co-hosted a Capitol Hill briefing with WCW to rally support for the AFTER Act, at which her dog Pepper joined as a special guest.

Support Louise’s work with WCW to end taxpayer-funded animal testing and free animals from government testing labs. Tell Congress you support the AFTER Act!

I do not want taxpayer money to support cruel, vile testing on lab monkeys, dogs, or any other animal.
Monkeys are primates. They are very intelligent with emotional humanlike feelings. This is unacceptable! Please stop for the love of God.
