Shelter Strays Used as Lab Animals

I thought it was an urban myth that animal shelters would actually turn over unwanted animals to laboratories for research, but apparently not.
Montcalm County has taken a step towards ending its relationship with an animal research facility.

The county has a contract with R&R Research in Howard City to euthanize the county's unwanted animals. In return, the company can use some of the unwanted dogs for animal research.
The animal shelter committee voted to end the contract, but it goes before the County commissioners in April.

unbelievable how people in this day and age can be so uncaring, callous, and have such little respect for life
