Organizer/AuthorBob O'Brien
Please come join us in a rally to spare about 800 dogs and puppies from some very cruel and unnecessary experiments (described below) at UCSF. So invite your friends - and take a stand for the dogs! Dogs, of course, are welcome too. WHEN/WHERE: Dec.3rd, 12noon, UCSF, 513 Parnassus Ave, San Francisco - rain or shine Some sad but true details: Perverse Use of Puppies - Project # A1644-00961-17A: German shepherd puppies as early as a day old (20 - 40 in number) are given drugs to cause their hearts to malfunction. All pups are "sacrificed" and their hearts removed for further study. Gruesome, Scientifically Pathetic - Project # A43109-22783-02A: This project will use up to 550 dogs over a period of 3 years. Most of the dogs will be surgically implanted with pacemakers. After the dogs recover from surgery, the pacemakers will be programmed to pace rapidly, causing congestive heart failure. Other dogs will have a portion of their mitral valves torn in order to cause the blood to flow backwards, also causing congestive heart failure. The dogs will either die from the ordeal in less than 6 months or be euthanized and have their hearts removed for further study. Another Heartless Experiment - Project # A43109-22715-02: This project will use up to 200 dogs over a period of 3 years. The Principal Investigator is the same as the one for the above, and the protocol is similar, but with a difference in the length of time the dogs will be kept alive (at most 42 days). -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please also write or email UCSF's Chancellor and the Chair of the IACUC to ask them to stop the experiments: Chancellor J.
