Hold Michigan Anti Cruelty Society accountable to the rules & regulations of the state
DID YOU KNOW???
when a pregnant dog enters Michigan Anti Cruelty Society they have 2 choices they follow as policy:
1. Momma dog is NOT adoptable based on BREED, temperament, or medical reasons.
-Momma dog is euthanized
2. Momma dog IS adoptable based on BREED, temperament, & medical reasons.
-Momma dog is given a Cesarean Section and each puppy is removed one by one and immediately euthanized.
Michigan Anti Cruelty Society does not only accept owner surrenders or stray dogs that residents find & BRING TO THEM. They have 2 vans with 2 full time drivers who patrol the streets of Detroit 5 days a week searching for stray dogs to bring to their shelter...
8 out of 10 are killed at the facility.
Michigan Anti Cruelty Society is in violation of state laws & rules governing animal shelters in Michigan... They need to be held accountable. They need to follow the rules like everyone else!
1. Facility has porous concrete floors -told 6 years in a row to correct the issue but hasn't.
2. Taking in stray animals without a signed agreement with the city of Detroit. It has been confirmed that they don't have one & have been ordered to cease taking in strays since May 2016 by Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. They continue to take in strays.
3. Driving around to pick up strays in Detroit is not permitted by any other shelter but Detroit Animal Control according to Polly McKillop of Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. They have 3 vans and employ 2 full time paid drivers to patrol the streets of Detroit for stray dogs.

Hold Michigan Anti Cruelty Society accountable for their facility conditions & actions.
In May of 2016 Michigan Anti Cruelty Society was ordered by MDARD to cease taking in strays. They have never stopped.
6 years in a row their concrete floors failed inspection & they've refused to upgrade or rectify the problem. There has been NO effort on the part of Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development to hold Michigan Anti Cruelty Society accountable to the rules & regulations set forth by the state.
They are even driving around to pick up strays that they intend to kill. They are not a municipal organization.
This issue has gone on long enough.
