Over 60,000 dogs are used in toxicity tests and research every year in the United States. One of our undercover investigators recently captured multiple studies, including a one-year pesticide test on 36 beagles contracted by Dow AgroSciences at a Michigan lab.
Dogs, who are known for their kind and loyal nature, are often used in these tests because they are easier to manipulate and less apt to fight back.
UPDATE: Dow has stopped the test on the 36 beagles! Keep up the pressure and ask Dow to release the dogs to the Humane Society of the United States so that they can be rehabilitated and have an actual chance at a happy life:
