As you know, for more than 20 years, Odessa, Texas, Animal Control has been selling cats to Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) for use in cruel medical training exercises. During these exercises, cats have hard plastic tubes repeatedly forced down their throats, and needles are stabbed into their chests. They are then killed when the training exercises conclude.

PETA has learned that—in the wake of our aggressive campaign to urge TTUHSC to replace the use of cats with more effective and humane simulators—Odessa Animal Control has not sold any cats to TTUHSC and that TTUHSC has also not purchased or used any cats at all for its training course.  

Has TTUHSC quietly stopped killing cats? Help us find out!

Please contact TTUHSC's director of communications, Mary Croyle, and its associate director of communications, Danette Baker, and ask if TTUHSC has replaced the use of cats for medical training with modern and humane simulators.

Thank you for standing up for animals!

Sincerely,









Justin Goodman
Research Associate Supervisor
Laboratory Investigations Department
