Dogs Born To Suffer

At the Alfort National Veterinary School in France, in experiments funded by the charity AFM-Téléthon, golden retrievers and other breeds of dogs are deliberately bred to develop crippling muscular dystrophy, including severe Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Laboratory employees admit that the dogs suffer. Some animals are completely crippled before they are six months old, and half die before they are ten months old.


Despite decades of experiments on dogs there is still no cure from Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

These painful experiments have accomplished nothing.

Please urge French charity AFM-Téléthon to stop funding these cruel experiments on dogs and to support only modern, non-animal studies.

    I hate these people, they think a dog is just an object, that they have no feeling. I wish they could suffer the same or more, the pain that the dogs have!
    I have 3 dogs… One is a Labrador taken from a shelter. So much love can give… Even if about the first 5-6 years of his life, we weren’t her family.
    I wish I could put everyone from there, at testing… Suffering testing.

      Millions of animals are used in experiments every year; the majority of these experiments do not benefit humans.

      There is immeasurable immense cruelty for very little gain.

  3. Sad is a dog’s life
    now I know it is so true
    die early or suffer endlessly
    without a clue

      That sums it up, poetically and adeptly.
