Group studies stray dogs in Detroit

Teams of volunteers are fanning out across Detroit for a two-day count of stray dogs.

The canine survey is part of the World Animal Awareness Society’s American Strays research project.

The Ann Arbor-based society’s executive director, Tom McPhee, says an accurate count will assist organizations in finding ways to help the stray dogs.

Some estimates place the number of stray and loose dogs in the thousands. McPhee says many dogs in Detroit were abandoned by owners who lost their homes or were unable to care for their pets.

After 90 minutes Saturday morning, volunteers Barbara Moran and Nicole Ryan had not spotted any dogs roaming in the west-side neighborhood they were surveying.

A Detroit dog rescue group has said strays tend to shy away from people.
