More than 315 institutions in the United States report using dogs in experiments each year. These institutions include academia, industry, and the government.
Dogs in laboratories suffer immensely. In addition to the painful experiments that most dogs in laboratories experience over days, months, years, or even decades, life in a laboratory is typically a miserable and terrifying experience.
Typically kept alone in barren steel cages with little room to move around and few, if any, comforts, such as toys or soft bedding, dogs often become excruciatingly lonely and anxious.
