Ask Wayne State University to Stop Inhumane, Painful Dog Experiments
Please sign this petition to help stop this terrible practice. Target: Allan Gilmour, President of Wayne State University Sponsored by: Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine Queenie, pictured, was a friendly dog when she came to Wayne State University, but two major surgeries left her scared and in pain. She was forced to run dozens of strenuous treadmill tests, suffering for months inside of the lab until experimenters broke one of the devices in her body. At that point, Queenie was killed. Dogs like Queenie are purchased from Class B "random source" dealers and sold to institutions conducting gruesome lab experiments. Many of the dogs come from shelters, where they could be placed in new homes. Instead, they undergo major surgeries, are implanted with medical devices, and experience unrelenting pain for months. Wayne State University is touted as a leading research institution, and should live up to that reputation by focusing on groundbreaking human-based epidemiological studies, clinical trials and computer modeling instead of continuing to use dogs. Send a message to Wayne State University's President asking him to stop this cruelty immediately.
