Tell Wayne State University to Stop Cruel Heart Experiments on Dogs

Dog in CageIn experiments at Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich., dogs undergo multiple surgeries, have catheters and medical devices implanted in their bodies, and are forced to run strenuous treadmill tests. These experiments have been going on since 1990, and we need your help to prevent more dogs from suffering. Please sign this petition to the dean of the Wayne State University School of Medicine, Valerie Parisi, M.D., M.P.H., M.B.A., that urges her to halt these experiments.

End Cruel Heart Experiments on Dogs

Dear [Decision Maker],

Please halt the cruel and unnecessary cardiovascular experiments on dogs at Wayne State University School of Medicine. In some of these experiments, multiple surgeries are performed on dogs before they are forced to run on treadmills. In one research project, up to 25 percent of dogs die before any data is collected.

Some of these experiments have been conducted by Wayne State faculty for more than two decades, without any benefit to human health. Heart disease is one of the biggest killers in the United States. Americans deserve human-based research rather than cruel and ineffective experiments on dogs.

Please halt these experiments immediately.
