A division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) run by Dr. Anthony Fauci allocated $1,836,453 in taxpayer dollars to test an experimental hay fever drug on dogs, rats and mice, according to documents released Monday by the White Coat Waste Project.
The FOIA documents show five separate dog experiments are planned — including tests on 6-month-old puppies. Some dogs could be force-fed large doses of the drug for months, the Washington Examiner reported.
Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the division of the NIH that commissioned the experiments.

Inimmune’s first quarterly report about the research was due in December 2021, and the final report is due in August 2023.
Inimmune proposed to test the safety and efficacy of the experimental hay fever drug in ragweed-sensitized dogs, and to assess the window of desensitization (relief from hay fever symptoms).
The company also proposed to prepare formulations of the drug, test them on rodents and dogs, and conduct “accelerated and long-term stability studies.”
“Hay fever” is the common term used for allergic rhinitis, an allergic reaction to pollen and other airborne allergens that causes cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, itchy eyes, congestion, sneezing and sinus pressure.
Treatment already exists for hay fever, including determining the allergens and then avoiding them, and taking prescription and over-the-counter medications.
The first of the five documents obtained by the White Coat Waste Project and posted online is undated and states Inimmune requested to use guinea pigs instead of dogs: “The reasons for considering the guinea pig model instead of the dog model are: allergic dog availability, time and costs,” the document states.
The White Coat Waste Project followed up to obtain more information, the group said, and noted it is possible the experiments were not yet conducted.
The contract isn’t the first evidence of the NIAID funding experiments on dogs. In October 2021, the White Coat Waste Project reported on what came to be known as #BeagleGate — NIAID-funded experiments on 44 beagle puppies in a Tunisia, North Africa, laboratory.
At the time, a bipartisan group of Congress members wrote to Fauci to express their “grave concerns” about the experiments. The $375,800 experiment involved locking the dogs’ heads in mesh cages while sand fleas bit them, and removing their vocal cords, allegedly so scientists wouldn’t have to listen to them barking.
In their letter, the members of Congress asked Fauci to explain the need for the testing, as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not require drugs to be tested on dogs.
The White Coat Waste Project documented that drug tests on dogs and other animals are known to be unreliable and wasteful.
The organization estimated 20,000 dogs and puppies are subjected to pain, distress and even death each year to satisfy archaic FDA red tape.
The 3Rs principles — replacement, reduction and refinement — are internationally accepted as the ethical framework for the use of animals in research.
“Replacement” refers to replacing animals with non-animal alternatives. “Reduction” means reducing the numbers of animals used in research. And “Refinement” means changing experimental procedures to reduce pain and distress when animals must be used.
The White Coat Waste Project, which called for reform of the FDA’s process, claims the regulatory approval process for new medicines and vaccines is broken, and reforms would reduce the numbers of animals used in research and taxpayer funding of these unnecessary tests.

We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
