DJ&T Foundation, that supports spay/neuter programs and has donated millions of dollars to schools to support the study of animal rights law.
Barker is now focusing on the University of Virginia (UVA) and their use of cats in their medical training program. According to NBC Washington, "The technique in question involves training graduate physicians on how to insert breathing tubes into premature newborns. Barker wants students to learn on simulators, not live animals. University of Virginia officials say simulators don’t do as good of a job as cats."
We are hoping that our supporters will help convince UVA to stop using the cats in medical training. You can write letters to the following people, letting them know you support Bob Barker and the use of simulators instead of live cats for medical training:
