We all know that the city of Detroit is in very bad shape.
But the one thing I hadn't thought about, was all the pets that get left behind when people abandoned their homes.
As many as 50,000 stray dogs roam the streets and vacant homes of bankrupt Detroit, replacing residents, menacing humans who remain and overwhelming
the city’s ability to find them homes or peaceful deaths.
I just caught a bit of the story on the world news last night, so I went digging into more on the story.
Unfortunately, this has been going on for quite a while, and the problem is growing.
Not only are many of the dogs starving, but they are having problems with them forming packs.
Local Rapper Dan "Hush" Carlisle has formed a rescue and really seems to be helping, but can you even imagine how big the problem is, in a city this
The big problem is the fact that Detroit itself is broke, and doesn't have the funds or the manpower to handle the dogs.
The other problem is that the poor that are still in the area are unable to care for their dogs in the area either. Some are turning them in.
As a dog owner, this just breaks my heart. I did make a donation to his rescue. I just wish I could give more.
Please people, remember to spay or neuter your pets!
