      Dear Animal Companions, Guardians, Lovers, Liberators & Vigilers:



      The DAY OF THE DOG is coming December 1st, Wednesday, Noon, at UCSF

      (please see info below).



      Bob O'Brien

      Important PS: If you can attend other days of the week following December 1st, please let me know - for we would like to establish a presence at UCSF through December 7th. Any day you can attend is appreciated as we call attention to - and attempt to stop - the scientifically invalid and pathetically unethical exploitation of dogs in several research projects (described below) at UCSF.

      PPS: We will be meeting/organizing for this event for the next several weeks. If you want to assist in our efforts, please call 415-751-3756 or e-mail vigilforanimals@...

      THE DAY OF THE DOG IS COMING....



      If you love dogs, really REALLY love dogs, come join us in a protest to spare about 800 dogs and puppies from some very cruel and bizarre experiments at UCSF. We have a very unusual event planned and you do not want to miss it! Bring your dogs! Your friends! Your kids! Your pom poms! Just be sure to come and take a stand for the dogs! We will have hot chocolate and soy chai and that�s just the beginning�.



      WHEN/WHERE: Dec.1 st, 12noon, UCSF, 513 Parnassus Ave�rain or shine



      Want the gory details? Here you go-



      Perverse Use of Puppies - Project # A1644-00961-17A: This project involves the acquisition of pregnant German shepherds in the latter stages of gestation from Cornell University in New York. The pregnant dogs give birth at UCSF, after which the puppies (approx. 40 in number) may be given drugs -prior to weaning- to cause their hearts to malfunction. All pups will be "sacrificed" by the project's end and their hearts removed for further study.



      Gruesome, Pathetic Project - # A43109-22783-02A: This project will use up to 550 dogs over a period of 3 years. Most of the dogs will be surgically implanted with pacemakers. After the dogs recover from surgery, the pacemakers will be programmed to pace rapidly, causing congestive heart failure. Other dogs will have a portion of their mitral valves torn in order to cause the blood to flow backwards, also causing congestive heart failure. The dogs will either die from the ordeal in less than 6 months or be euthanized and have their hearts removed for further study.



      Another Heartless Experiment - Project - # A43109-22715-02: This project will use up to 200 dogs over a period of 3 years. The Principal Investigator is the same as the one for the above, and the protocol is similar, but with a difference in the length of time the dogs will be kept alive (at most 42 days).
