Here is a great way to save taxpayer dollars. And even better, a way to save animals.
The government is supposed to protect all our country, yet they spend about $12-$15 billion tax dollars every year for wasteful experiments on loving animals … cats, dogs, monkeys and other animals. These experiments are brutally cruel. They are useless. Animal lovers and taxpayers aren’t aware of all of this and haven’t approved these experiments.
The White Coat Waste Project, under the leadership of its president Anthony Bellotti, is fighting back. The White Coat Waste Project is the recipient of six “Congressional Waste Warrior” awards. They are helping abused animals by
- investigating and analyzing these government experiments, the abuse, and the cost,
- educating the public about these abuses,
- building a coalition to resolve the issues.
Sample abuses (as per http://www.whitecoatwaste.org/the-facts/):
- Stuffing hamsters with pizza: $?
- shrimp fight club: $707,000
- shrimps running on treadmills: $? see reference: Shrimp running on treadmills
- Lab Mouse Gender Inequalities $10 million
- Doped Up Rats: $185,625
- Stuttering Mice: almost $2 million
- Vomiting Dogs: $?
- Monkeys on a treadmill: almost $3 million
- Green Tea Force-feeding: $?
- Pig patients: $1.1 million
Currently, the USDA wiped out animal welfare reports and abuse data from its website. Many have protested this action and several lawsuits are being pursued to get this data back online.
For the first time, there will be an audit of the government’s animal labs, thanks to the bi-partisan support, led by Representatives Ken Calvert (R-CA) and Dina Titus (D-NV). See http://www.FactAct.org
Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Reps. Ken Calvert (R-Calif.), Tom Marino (R-Pa.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.) and Dina Titus (D-Nev.) were honored by the White Coat Waste Project for their efforts in these initiatives.

A Nicaragua veterinarian clinic is helping abused animals by rescuing and caring for animals. There are more than a million stray animals in Nicaragua. These include dogs and cats that have been abused, starved, run over, poisoned, and suffer many health problems in addition to the abuse they receive from people. These veterinarians also help wild animals and horses. Animals don’t deserve such horrific treatment. They need to be cared for and loved. Animals are loving beings that feel pain, hunger, fear, abandonment. And they mourn, just like humans. Helping abused animals is difficult when there isn’t enough funding to help so many animals.
There is a gofundme page to help raise money for caring of these animals. Visit https://www.gofundme.com/7qmtfc44 to help.

Paws of War is ‘helping a vet’ while ‘saving a pet’. Their mission is admirable and very much appreciated by veterans and their shelter dogs, and deserves much praise.
“To train and place shelter dogs to serve and provide independence to our U.S. military veterans that suffer from the emotional effects of war.”
Veterans are not charged for this service. The cost is absorbed by donations to the Paws of War. This wonderful service provides life-long support to our veterans and their dogs through personalized one-on-one training sessions. Animals are such loving, devoted companions. It is no wonder how helpful they are to anyone. Paws of War’s approach is helping abused animals at the same time as helping the veterans. A totally win-win situation.
We salute and honor all veterans today on Veteran’s Day, and every day. Thank you!.
Paws of War is located in Smithtown, NY
Meet a wonderful organization that is helping abused animals “from idiot humans”.
Since March 2011, Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue has rescued over 1300 dogs from shelters across the country. This non-profit, all volunteer network of rescuers transports dogs from pounds in the rural south, dogs that are on the ‘kill lists’ in high kill pounds. Some of those pounds practice inhumane methods of euthanizing the dogs. Some have over a 90% kill rate.
The loving people at Badass utilize professional rescue transporters to ensure that the ride up from these pounds to Brooklyn are comfortable and stress-free. The dogs are taken to foster homes for training and some get adopted. Badass takes meticulous steps to finding an appropriate match, including personal references, a vet reference and a home visit before they allow the adoption to take place.
In addition, rescued dogs provide medical care, including spay/neuter, vaccinations, tests for heartworm and other medical services.
Please visit their website http://www.badassbrooklynanimalrescue.com to find out more about their wonderful efforts, to foster a dog, volunteer, or donate.
