Dog Research Exposed

Over 55,000 dogs are used in biomedical and chemical experiments in the United States each year. Join host Ellie Hansen, author of Laboratory Dogs Rescued, as she continues her eye-opening interviews about how we can work together to end the cruel and unnecessary use of dogs in research.

Truthful, inspiring, and educational…real dialogue with the people who are on the forefront of changing the animal testing paradigm.
