After four months of fruitless effort, it became clear that we were going to have to ramp up our campaign and mount some public pressure. We put up a billboard and train station ads that called out the medical center. Less than 48 hours after the ads went up, MMC contacted us and told us they would stop using animals.

I am extremely happy to share a great success. Morristown Medical Center (MMC) in New Jersey has stopped using live dogs in their emergency medicine residency program.

The cruelty taking place was intense. But dogs will never again have their chest cut into, their breastbones cracked open, or their bones drilled into in order to train MMC's residents.

This is an incredible victory—and we have you to thank.

About five months ago, we found out that Morristown Medical Center was using live dogs to train physicians in its emergency medicine residency program. This was in sharp contrast to the vast majority of similar programs that use only superior human-relevant training methods, methods that don't require the use and eventual killing of animals.

I reached out to encourage them to make the switch to nonanimal training methods. After four months of fruitless effort, it became clear that we were going to have to ramp up our campaign and mount some public pressure. We put up a billboard and train station ads that called out the medical center. Less than 48 hours after the ads went up, MMC contacted us and told us they would stop using animals. 

These advertisements, funded by our members, helped us reach the finish line! Please go to our website to donate!
