Pamela Anderson is a vegan animal rights advocate and has been rescuing Golden Retrievers most of her life. Now she wants to adopt an entire laboratory of dogs.
One of the largest universities in Texas called Texas A&M University (TAMU) has been experimenting on Golden Retrievers for decades. The experiments are carried out in the vain hope that they can find an effective treatment for muscular dystrophy but these experiments have failed for decades.
Muscular Dystrophy is a rare genetic disease that causes weakened muscles. TAMU has been breeding dogs with this disease, so they can perform medical experiments that sound more like torture. To measure how much the dogs muscles deteriorate over time they stretch the canines muscles with a machine until they tear. Video footage emerged of Golden Retrievers with muscular dystrophy being kept in barren metal cages with swollen tongues, weakened jaw muscles and long strings of drool hanging from their mouths. The dogs struggled to swallow and some could not eat solid food.
Thankfully as of September 2019 the university agreed to stop breeding the dogs for research. This happened after pressure was applied from hundreds of physicians who argued that the testing was cruel and ineffective.
Now Pamela Anderson has offered to adopt all the remaining dogs left in the laboratory. She has written a letter to the TAMU president urging him to let her rescue the remaining dogs trapped in the universities’ lab. In part oh her letter she wrote.
‘‘Please commit to ending Texas A&M’s muscular dystrophy experiments on precious Golden Retrievers and to releasing the remaining dogs in the laboratory for adoption. I’m ready to welcome them into my family”
Hopefully the Texas A&M University will do the right thing and end this cruel and unnecessary practise.
