The White Coat Waste Project, a bi-partisan coalition of more than 350,000 members who are opposed to the government’s wasteful spending on animal experiments, issued an urgent call to action yesterday in order to raise the $13,500.00 necessary to cover legal expenses for its current lawsuit against the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The organization has until midnight June 30, 2017, to raise the funds that will help it continue to pursue its lawsuit that was filed against a V.A. law in Richmond Virginia that is planning to kill 118 more dogs and puppies and heart attack and treadmill experiments.
The lawsuit was filed in a U.S. District Court after its Freedom of Information Act request was met with a refusal by the V.A. to name the experimenters and he was paying the bills.
“Taxpayer, this is outrageous! The V.A. must be held accountable,” urged Anthony Bellotti, president and co-founder of Washington-based White Coat Waste who explained that the organization recently was successful in shutting down the Los Angeles V.A.’s “House of Horrors.” “That’s why this lawsuit is so urgent. A victory in Richmond could ‘break the back’ of the entire government dog lab program. We can’t lose momentum now!”
The organization is dedicated to stopping taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs, monkeys, cats and other animals.
According to White Coat Waste, taxpayers are currently forced to pay more than 15 billion dollars for animal experiments per year.
