Montcalm County has taken a step towards ending its relationship with an animal research facility.The animal shelter committee voted to end the contract, but it goes before the County commissioners in April.
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.
