Dogster member Carol barked this to me, it’s Michigan’s disgusting practice of selling animals in shelters to brokers who sell the animals for research.
Right now in Michigan, shelter cats and dogs are allowed to be bought for experimental research. The animals are then euthanized.
Companion animals depend on humans for their safety and well-being. Tragically, this dependency is betrayed when shelters allow these pets to be taken by Class B Dealers for resale to research.
When Class B dealers (animal brokers) and research facilities can obtain cats and dogs from animal shelters, it diminishes the shelters’ credibility and purpose, and betrays public trust.
Thank you for helping animals today.
