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. Montcalm County has taken a step towards ending its relationship with an animal research facility.
