DOG MARCH against UCSF DOG EXPERIMENTS

Date:
Sunday, April 10, 2005
Time:
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Event Type:
Protest
Organizer/Author:
Michelle
Location Details:
Where: Corner of 16th Street and Owens Street, at the Mission Bay Campus

Parking: From 16th Street, turn into the unnamed street between Owens and 3rd Street. (3rd Street intersects with 16th Street on the east end.) The parking lot is free on Sunday.

Despite many civilized attempts to dialogue with officials at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), the university is still determined to perform cruel heart experiments on 750 to 800 dogs. They will suffer in great pain for a period of time ranging from several days to as long as six months before they die, depending on the degree of problems and injuries caused. These experiments are not going to advance human medicine because it is already known that dog hearts - both anatomically and at the cellular level - are very different from those of humans, and better results can be achieved using humane human-based research methods. To protest and draw media attention to UCSF's heartless cruelty, a dog march is being held at which we hope to have at least one hundred well-behaved dogs. (Those who don't have dogs are welcome, too!) When: Sunday, April 10th from 10:45 a.m. to 12:00 noon Where: UCSF's Mission Bay Campus (corner of 16th St. and Owens St.), San Francisco Free parking for the march is available. From 16th St., go down the unnamed street between Owens and 3rd St. (which intersects with 16th St. at the east end) to the parking lot. If you can make it to the march, please email noanimalexperiment@yahoo.com. Please give us your telephone number and email address in case we need to contact you with updates, and let us know how many dogs you can bring. What follows is a link to the details of Dr. Jeffrey Olgin's dog experiments along with some of the most egregious experiments at UCSF recently uncovered: http://www.indybay.org/news/2005/03/1727680.php
