TAKE ACTION: ASK NIH to Stop Using Dogs in Heart Failure Research


Queenie

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 like her.

Dear Dr. Collins:

I am writing to ask that the National Institutes of Health withdraw millions of dollars in funding from university research during which devices are surgically implanted in dogs before forcing the animals to run on treadmills. Please end these cruel experiments by withdrawing funding immediately.
