Ever since White Coat Waste Project (WCW) first exposed that dangerous coronavirus experiments on animals at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) were funded by U.S. taxpayers, the idea that the coronavirus accidentally leaked from the lab and caused the COVID pandemic has gained international traction. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) — which once...

Starting in 2018, and every year since, WCW-backed language defunding wasteful and cruel dog and cat experiments at the Department of Veterans Affairs has been included in federal spending bills — and this year is no exception.

Since 2019, White Coat Waste Project (WCW) has been leading the fight to defund the barbaric and wasteful practice known as “live tissue training” (LTT) — stabbing, shooting, burning, and dismembering pigs and goats as part of law enforcement officers’ medical training at the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Less than two weeks ago, White Coat Waste Project revealed that Dr. Fauci was at it again.

White Coat Waste Project (WCW) has been leading the charge to end taxpayer-funded animal experiments in government labs and retire the survivors. We were deeply dismayed that most federal agencies did not allow taxpayers to adopt animals when their experiments came to an end, so WCW launched the first national campaign to make retirement a...

Free Speech Victory! At the core of White Coat Waste Project (WCW) is a belief: taxpayers deserve to know how our money is being spent. Our strategy to shut down government labs has always been F.E.D.. Using the Freedom of Information Act, we FIND wasteful and cruel taxpayer-funded animal experiments. Then we EXPOSE them to...

White Coat Waste Project made national and international headlines in 2021, after our #BeagleGate campaign revealed a series of cruel and wasteful dog experiments funded with tax dollars by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Remember de-barking puppies? Infecting dogs with heartworm? Infesting beagles with sand flies? Injecting dogs with cocaine? Yeah, those experiments. Many...
