Urge Feds to Cut Funding for Cruel Experiments at UCSF

i Mar 7th by

The University of California-San Francisco (UCSF)—which receives half a BILLION dollars a year in taxpayer funds for research—has a 15-year history of violating animal welfare laws and abusing mice, monkeys, and other animals in its labs. This resulted in a $92,500 fine– one of the largest ever — for the university in 2005.  Newly obtained documents prove that the abusive and neglectful conditions have not changed. National Institutes of Health (NIH) policies require facilities receiving taxpayer money to abide by animal welfare laws and guidelines as a condition of their receiving grants, but UCSF continues to receive taxpayer money for animal experimentation in spite of violating these provisions. Contact the NIH and demand that they stop taxpayer funding for animal experimentation at UCSF.
