My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Michigan Anti Cruelty Society, Detroit, MI, USA
I thought this place was a shelter, that saved animals. Turns out that their own records show all these years of killing...up to 80% of adoptable pets. Talk about not trying at all! Furthermore it appears that breed discrimination, not unlike racism with humans, is a big deal here. As stated in another review, some aren't save able, is an excuse for that woman who hates pitbulls terrier dogs. When in fact almost 100% of people fail to identify that breed and about 30 other breeds correctly. So, seems they must be killing tons of fur babies like labs, and boxers just because of their looks. Seems pretty familiar to how African Americans have been treated.
There is also the problem of the worst record (probably in the whole country) of returning animals to their owners. So that obviously means that if your pet gets out during a car accident, a burglary, or some other accident, and these people get ahold of it, not only are you likely to be told you can't look in their facility, but it appears their must be some fudging of paperwork for 99% of lost pets they get to be killed, but they act like they are doing a service.
And since when do workers come out of their building, assault animal advocate protesters, and not get fired. Then, they accused the vict9 of being the attackers! Well, that's all on video, so after the court date, they will look pretty foolish for continuing to keep these alleged criminal abusers on staff.
It is so unfortunate that this company had offers from 'real', well run, we'll known animal shelter, rescue, and advocates, and they railroaded them all, just to to keep their secrets? We all know how poorly this big money place runs, why not accept the help from those who know what they're doing?
They massive amounts of deaths, probably tens of thousands over all these years, and the minimal efforts they give- seems most effort is put into their commercial style letters to sell themselves, as if they are one of those other, good shelters, to keep the money flowing. Makes you wonder what and where lots of that money has gone over all these years too.
I don't know how their adoption program works, as you really only ever see small dogs being shown on social media as being adopted from there...and since their is only a 1% return to owner rate, makes you wonder if they are giving away someone else's pet without doing diligence to get said pets to their rightful homes? Everything about this place seems funky to me.
