This college is using live dogs, then kills them. Please help save these poor dogs!

Can you help us end the dog lab at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW)? Every spring, the medical college uses 60 live dogs in a first-year physiology course. At the end of the class, the dogs are killed.

Labs like this were once common, but today more than 85 percent of U.S. medical schools have implemented humane and effective alternatives. MCW owns four state-of-the-art human patient simulators specifically designed to replace animal use for physiology teaching, so MCW president Michael Bolger could implement humane alternatives immediately.

MCW administrators are considering the use of pigs or sheep as replacements. However, this does not address the basic issue—the use of animals is cruel, unnecessary, and educationally inferior to non-animal alternatives.

Top-ranked medical schools such as Harvard, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania have produced excellent doctors for years without the use of live animal labs in their curricula. It’s time for MCW to follow that example and save the lives of 60 animals.

Contact the Medical College of Wisconsin today. Politely ask administrators to immediately replace live animals with humane non-animal alternatives.
