Shelter Strays Used as Lab Animals
MARCH 26, 2009
I thought it was an urban myth that animal shelters would actually turn over unwanted animals to laboratories for research, but apparently not. The county has a contract with R&R Research in Howard City to euthanize the county's unwanted animals. In return, the company can use some of the unwanted dogs for animal research. The animal shelter committee voted to end the contract, but it goes before the County commissioners in April.
