As of 8pm last evening, a female dog and her ten pups were still living in a filthy, garbage-strewn garage behind an abandoned home on the west side of Detroit. Frustrated neighbors are asking for help after receiving no response from local authorities.
One neighbor said that nothing has been done, even though she has contacted Detroit Animal Control and the Detroit Humane Society several times. The Michigan Humane Society said the case was referred to Detroit Animal Control, but apparently no one came out to check on the dogs. The Humane Society said it will now send an investigator to see what can be done for the animals, but after so many dead ends, local residents are not holding out hope.
