Media 💩 Storm: WCW Campaign to End VA’s Taxpayer-Funded, Cat-Stipation Experiments Is Big News!

🔥🔥”The Veterans Administration is doing things to cats that would land an individual in jail, and you’re paying for it.”🔥🔥

That’s the first line in the Nevada Current’s great story about White Coat Waste Project’s new investigation, revealing how the VA is purchasing, crippling, and killing 6-month-old kittens in secretive constipation experiments… to the tune of more than $8.4 million in taxpayer dollars. 

Holy 💩, the press is taking notice!

Here’s how WCW whipped up the 💩 storm that’s taking over the airwaves … and Capitol Hill.

(Hint: we do it in 3 steps. Think “F.E.D.”)

Step #1: FIND the waste.  First, we follow the money.

WCW’s investigators filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain the VA’s secret lab videos, photos, and receipts.


Step #2: EXPOSE the waste. Then, we leaked proof how three VA labs are buying kittens at taxpayer expense, injecting fake stool up their anuses, severing their spinal cords, and removing their brains.

Now media is all over this outrageous misuse of taxpayer funds.

Here’s Military.com, quoting our VP Justin Goodman:

Since at least 2015, the Cleveland VA has been “torturing cats as young as 6 months old in disturbing constipation and incontinence experiments,” which involve implanting electrodes to stimulate their bladders or colons, injecting artificial stool, and snapping their spines, said Justin Goodman, vice president of advocacy and public policy at the White Coat Waste Project, in a statement.

Most of the test subjects exhibited “distress, seizures, bloody urine, and even depression,” an analysis of the medical records showed.

Step #3: DEFUND the waste. Of course, raising awareness isn’t enough. So WCW immediately rallied 30 powerful Members of Congress to put the VA on notice.

Now these Democrats and Republican lawmakers are getting great coverage—in their home districts, like the Nevada Current’s story on Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV), which the Nevada Independent also picked up, and Colorado Politics on Joe Neguse (D-CO).

And The Sun—a UK publication—which notes that seven of the Congress members who signed the letter are themselves veterans, including Rep. Mast.


As well as WCW board adviser and philanthropist Louise Linton, who wrote, “STOP SPENDING OUR TAX DOLLARS ON SICK, TWISTED, DISGUSTING, NEEDLESS AND USELESS ANIMAL TESTS THAT HAVEN’T ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING IN DECADES!!!!”

STOP SPENDING OUR TAX DOLLARS ON SICK, TWISTED, DISGUSTING, NEEDLESS AND USELESS ANIMAL TESTS THAT HAVEN’T ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING IN DECADES!!!! 🔧⚒🔩🧲⛓🌡🧪💉🩸🔬🧫 ya sickos!! 🤬 (Thank you Trump Administration for helping put an end to this nasty and vile, outdated waste of tax payer dollars which has been carrying on under numerous administrations for decades!!) 🤯😡😭🤬 CLICK LINK IN MY BIO TO READ THE ARTICLE. ⬆️ thanks The Sun UK 🇬🇧 for sharing the information. “Scottish-born actress and producer Louise Linton told The Sun: “These cruel kitten experiments highlight the importance of the Trump administration’s efforts to end outdated government animal tests." The philanthropist and WCW board adviser added: "I’m proud to support the WCW project, Congress and all in this effort to prevent animal abuse and ensure the people’s hard-earned tax dollars are spent on humane research." ARMY vets are campaigning to end “barbaric” experiments on America’s cats who have their spines snapped and potato injected up their bums for research. After seeing sickening video of cats also having their skulls drilled into, they've banded together to fight the Department of Veterans Affairs' "painful and outdated" incontinence and constipation tests. A letter signed by 31 lawmakers, including seven military veterans, calls on the VA to find more humane methods of testing incontinence and constipation treatments. Barbaric tests on moggies as young as six months old for constipation and incontinence experiments involve the implantation of electrodes to stimulate bladders and colons, Freedom of Information documents reveal. Gut-wrenching photos and video of cats being operated on to insert devices were recently provided exclusively to The Sun by the White Coat Waste Project, which obtained them through the FOIA. White Coat Waste Projects spokesman Justin Goodman told The Sun this week: "Taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to pay millions for VA bureaucrats to buy healthy kittens, cripple them, drill into their skulls and even videotape their abuse in outdated and barbaric constipation tests and other cat experiments….” @thesun

We are extremely grateful for all the interest and support.

But the media 💩 storm we’re REALY looking forward to is when we get the VA’s horrific cat-stipation labs shut down!

Please help us “cut the crap” by taking a moment to write and urge Congress to de-fund VA’s kitten labs and make the VA adopt out the survivors!

Totally torture! Absolutely no excuse for these type of experiments in our day and age. We have many more ways to find out what is needed without hurting an innocent animal. Please de-fund this and adopt out anyvand all cats/kittens that are and will be in the program before it’s shut down. Remember, this could be your child’s pet, someone could come into your yard/home and steal their pet and them to a place like this doing research.

Stop these horrific experiments!

Make this STOP. NOW!

No more money should be given to these monsters to cripple and kill beautiful, innocent kittens. Let’s prioritize sustaining life on this planet, not finding ways to hurt, experiment on, decimate and kill.

You have no right to confiscate domestic pets and needlessly and cruelly torture them like this! Find alternatives to help humans who can’t control their piss and can’t shit!! And using taxpayers money to abeit in the pain and suffering of God’s creatures. I hope you ALL get your just deserts for this!! Karmas a bitch!!!!!!!
