Rogue, a brown, black, and white hound, endured months of experimental surgeries, having nine devices implanted in her body and being forced to run on a treadmill. At just 15 months old she died in October 2012 in a laboratory at Wayne State University in Detroit, where she was being used in cruel and misguided experiments. Unfortunately, Rogue was neither the first nor the last dog to suffer and die like this, but with your help we can stop these experiments once and for all.

Please speak out and demand that the president of Wayne State end these experiments immediately.

These experiments have been going on at Wayne State for more than 20 years. Over that time, hundreds of dogs have been used and killed with no human health benefits to show for it. Since 2000, more than $8 million in taxpayer funding—doled out by the National Institutes of Health—have gone to these experiments.

The Physicians Committee has been fighting to advance heart failure research by stopping these experiments. In 2012, we tried to obtain new documents from Wayne State to support our campaign, but the school sued us to try to withhold all information. So we went to court against Wayne State—and won.

From that court battle we obtained more than 800 pages of documents that detail what dozens of dogs have gone through in Wayne State laboratories. Using information in the documents, this week we filed a complaint with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), calling on the agency to cite Wayne State and halt these experiments.

While we expect the USDA will take action, we still need your help. Please take a few seconds to
e-mail the president of Wayne State and demand that he immediately transition his institution away from these cruel and ineffective dog experiments and toward human-relevant research.

Read our USDA complaint and learn more about Rogue here.

Thank you for taking immediate action.
