NABR Letter to Congress Opposing PUPPERS Act

Today, NABR sent a letter to the chairmen of the House and Senate Appropriations Committees in opposition to H.R. 3197, the “PUPPERS Act,” and a similar amendment offered by Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) to the House-passed homeland security minibus. The legislation would effectively end studies with canine models at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Earlier this month, 41 scientific and medical organizations and research universities sent a letter to Congress in opposition to these efforts.
