Meet Violet. You need to hear her story.
I adopted Violet from a taxpayer-funded dog lab. She was known as dog #CEGMBN, her government ID that's tattooed in her ear.
When I first met Violet in the lab, I whispered in her ear, 'I promise I'll get you out.'But her transition from government experiment to family pet hasn't been easy.
Violet had never been outside. She never felt grass. She couldn't learn "normal" house training because she was locked in a cage for too long. So she had to wear a diaper.
Believe it or not, Violet's one of the lucky ones. Other labs, such as the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, kill adoptable puppies like Violet and throw them away in garbage bags — like trash.
Well, Violet isn't trash. And I feel betrayed by my government. That's why I'm writing you today.
I just established "Violet's Fund" to cover our new campaign to de-fund the VA's "maximum pain" tests and adopt out the dogs.
DEADLINE: to fully fund this new campaign, we must meet our budget by midnight, December 31. It's the most important deadline of the year.
Our team recently exposed to Congress how the VA injects latex into the arteries of five-month-old puppies like Violet and forces them to run on treadmills to stress their hearts.
However, I was even more outraged to learn that the VA spent $38,000 to buy "submissive" female puppies — then killed them within days of their first birthday.
This isn't just wasteful... it's wrong. Violet's Fund could end this.
As I write this, the Richmond-Times Dispatch is now reporting some AMAZING, breaking news about our campaign:
To capitalize on this momentum, a generous benefactor will DOUBLE every gift before the deadline to help us win the campaign and adopt out the puppies into loving homes!
So will you please rush a tax-deductible "Violet's Fund" gift before the deadline to help adopt out these dogs into loving homes?
Let's get this done,
P.S. I just established Violet's Fund to de-fund the VA's "maximum pain" testsand adopt out the puppies so they can walk on the grass and feel sunshine on their backs. Can I count on your tax-deductible gift before the deadline? – Thanks, Julie.
