DETROIT -- The city's Animal Control Center, which eliminated 38
percent of its animal control officers the past year due to budget
cuts, is under fire because of inhumane conditions and the
mistreatment of animals.
State officials are working with the center, in hopes of upgrading
animal care and keeping it open.
"That place is a death sentence for dogs," said Sheri McCrory, a
materials planner from White Lake.
She volunteered at the center for four months this year, but quit
because she couldn't stomach the way animals were treated.
"Animals are better off running on the streets. At least there they
could find their own food and water."
