Connections.....Wisconsin Humane Society

Here is a notice that ran in early 2007 in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in support of trying to get the Medical College of Wisconsin to stop killing dogs in their physiology labs. This was part of a significant campaign, involving the use of a billboard, having a press conference at the Wisconsin Humane Society, and later, and having well-publicized protests in front of the medical college. The efforts have seem to have paid off. It appears that MCW will not be killing dogs ever again in their student labs, and that their old-school dean of the physiology department, who just couldn’t bring himself to changing an antiquated and inhumane practice, will hopefully be retiring soon. Stay tuned.
