UPDATE | March 26, 2019: Following the release of our undercover investigation, Dow AgroSciences (Corteva AgriScience) ended its one-year pesticide test on 36 beagles at Charles River Laboratories in Michigan. Unfortunately, the dogs currently remain at the lab. We want to get the dogs into loving homes as soon as possible, so we’re pushing Corteva to work with us and our shelter and rescue partners. You can help us by calling Corteva at 989-394-3783 and urging them to release the beagles into our care.
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. This cruel and unnecessary testing includes the force-feeding of pesticides to the dogs, who are otherwise held in practically barren cages. There is no way out for dogs like these.
Tragically, this suffering is all too common and most dogs die in the laboratory. But, there is hope for these 36 dogs and we have to act fast to get them released to the Humane Society of the United States.
Please sign the petition and demand that Dow AgroSciences release the 36 dogs to the Humane Society of the United States. All signatures we collect will be delivered straight to Dow.
After you sign, please share the petition with colleagues, friends and family. The more public pressure placed on Dow, and the more signatures we collect, the better the chances are that these dogs will be freed.
