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.

It is so horrific to see pets being brutally tortured and then killed for dog and cat meat. How brutal can people be? Where is their humanity. Pets and street animals are rounded up, crushed into cages for extremely long journeys till they reach their torture chambers. They are brutally beaten, skinned alive, or boiled alive.
Why? “These horrors are inflicted because of the barbaric belief that when they are in pain, their bodies release adrenaline that softens their meat. Terror, torture, then a painful death.”
This is quite possibly the worst form of cruelty humans could inflict on innocent animals. Pictures of what is happening will make you weep.

IFAW is reporting that Zimbabwe baby elephants are being taken away from their families. Elephants mourn their losses and death just like humans do. They are sensitive, loving creatures that actually cry like humans.
Please help by signing here IFAW’s Petition (no longer an active link)
Elephants are abused to the point of extinction. They are killed brutally for their tusks. They are tortured in captivity. All for the pleasure of inhumane humans.

Do you know what abuse is used to make foie gras? I hope you ban this food.
The California ban on foie gras was overturned. Now chefs are allowed to put this liver dish back on their menus. “Foie gras is made by force-feeding geese and ducks through tubes shoved down their throats to make their livers fatty and engorged.”
This is an extremely cruel process. California was the first state to ban foie gras two years ago. Sign petition to bring back the ban – sign the Care2 petition today urging California to appeal the judge’s decision!
“The process of making foie gras causes immense suffering to the point where ducks can no longer walk or breathe normally. This cruel and inhumane treatment of animals for the purpose of an indulgent dish must end.
California officials still have a chance to appeal the judge’s decision overturning the ban on foie gras. But they won’t do so unless they hear from enough of us demanding an end to this animal torture. Act now to bring back the ban on foie gras in California!”
Sign petition quickly before it is too late to ban : http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/142/340/446/?z00m=22491640&redirectID=1565876332
Raju is an elephant in India that was recently rescued from his abuser after 50 years of abuse. He was near death and cried when rescued but now his abuser is trying to get him back. Please sign the petition to help Raju. They need another 25,000 signatures now.
Click HERE to help Raju by signing the petition.
Help Raju from abuse. We need more signatures by Sept 4.
Raju was rescued and freed in July of 2014 after spending almost 50 years in chains. At the time of his rescue he was near death. He was emaciated, dehydrated and exhausted. Despite his frailness, he was forced to beg on the streets and was being kept in spiked chains. Now the cruel person who had illegal custody of him is trying to get him back through the Allahabad court. You helped free him once, we need your voice once again to keep his freedom.
