The Physicians Committee is pushing the National
Institutes of Health (NIH) to withdraw millions of dollars in funding from
university research during which devices are surgically implanted in dogs—like
Queenie—before forcing the animals to run on treadmills.
Queenie was sold to a university laboratory that performs
cruel, unnecessary experiments on live animals. In the lab, Queenie and
countless other healthy dogs were cut open, devices were implanted in their
blood vessels, and then they were forced to run on treadmills. The
experimenters then induced hypertension in Queenie by reducing the flow of
blood to her kidneys. After nine torturous months, Queenie was killed.
It is too late for Queenie, but not thousands of animals

Dear Dr. Collins:
