#BeagleGate Redux: WCW Whacks Wasteful NIH Dog Tests

24 March 2023 | Blog


Our #BeagleGate campaign to end the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) cruel and wasteful experiments on puppies and dogs has gone viral in recent years.

We’re proud to lead the national effort to expose and defund this waste and abuse. In fact, we’re the only group to have shut down a government dog lab in nearly 20 years!

Here’s a quick overview of what we’ve uncovered and where we’re headed with #BeagleGate:

Back in 2016, our Spending To Death report first exposed how Dr. Fauci’s in-house labs at the NIH strapped capsules full of biting sandflies to beagles’ bare skin in maximum pain experiments with no pain relief.

In July 2021, we officially launched our #BeagleGate campaign when we exposed, using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), how Dr. Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) shipped over $400,000 to a lab that infested puppies with biting flies for experiments in which the dogs “vocalized in pain.

We subsequently obtained documents showing how these Fauci-funded white coats callously named the ill-fated puppies after celebrities, like Snoop Dogg and Ozzy Osbourne, and then tortured and killed them.

In August 2021, we exposed how Dr. Fauci’s NIAID shipped part of a $375,000 taxpayer-funded grant to a Tunisian lab that drugged beagles, locked their heads in cages, and let them be bitten on the face by hungry sand flies.

It gets worse.

In October 2021, we exposed Fauci-funded white coats who wasted over $5 million to infest 138 beagle puppies with hundreds of mutant ticks each.

The same month, we also uncovered a Fauci-funded lab that wasted $1.68 million to force-feed puppies experimental drugs and cut out their vocal cords so they couldn’t bark or cry out in the lab.

In November 2021, we uncovered how Fauci-funded white coats wasted part of a $6 million grant to infest beagles with heartworms and then kill the dogs and experiment on the worms.

In January 2022, our viral #CokeHounds investigation exposed how NIH wasted $2 million to inject beagle puppies with cocaine.

Our Coke Hounds exposé caught Sen. Rand Paul’s attention, too!

In February 2022, we revealed how an NIH in-house lab bought beagles from the disgraced Envigo puppy mill & infected them with pneumonia & septic shock. We also exposed how a Fauci-funded lab also bought puppies from Envigo, implanted devices into them & force-fed them experimental drugs.

In the Spring of 2022, we blew the lid off Dr. Fauci’s plan to waste $1.8 million on a series of five new dog experiments to test an experimental drug for seasonal allergies (aka, an itchy and runny nose!).

And then we worked successfully with Sen. Joni Ernst and Rep. Nancy Mace to completely cancel all five of the misguided dog tests!

In September 2022, we uncovered how for 75 years straight the NIH has wasted tens of millions of tax dollars to fund a lab that breeds hundreds of beagles and other dogs each year to suffer from bleeding disorders for cruel experiments.

Just last month, we exposed how the NIH is wasting millions of tax dollars to round up abandoned hounds and infest them with sandflies in deadly and painful experiments.

As you might imagine, after three years of #BeagleGate, the NIH desperately wants to keep its wasteful spending on dog torture a secret. So, we’re suing them to force the release of related records. Taxpayers have the right to know who’s paying the bills and who’s cashing the checks!

Now, we’re working with Congress on a bipartisan bill to DEFUND the NIH’s wasteful dog tests!

Blog Comments

The animal testing fallacy is just a research slush fund.

Let Dr. Fauci know that taxpayers DO NOT want their money spent on torturing animals with cruel and needless experiments!

It’s time we stop torturing animals for research.

Stop torturing animals!
