Dearborn shelter offers $2,000 reward for dog found burned
A Dearborn animal shelter is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the person responsible for burning a dog.
The Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit said the female dog was rescued by Dearborn police, who received a call the injured dog Friday on the city’s east side.
The dog appeared to have been burned numerous times over a period of time. She’s a mixed breed, estimated between 1-3 years old.
Elaine Greene, the shelter’s executive director, said the dog, who they’ve named Phoenix, was kind despite being abused. “In spite of the horrific nature of the injuries, (she's) very trusting of people,” Greene said.
An anonymous donation doubled the reward the shelter offered.
Contact the shelter at (313) 9432607 with information about the abuse. To donate to medical treatment of Phoenix, visit metrodetroitanimals.org.
Nearly $1M EPA grant to build 2 reefs in Saginaw Bay
Bay City — Michigan will receive nearly $1 million from the federal government to build two rock reef formations in the Saginaw Bay.
Michigan Department of Natural Resources fisheries research biologist Dave Fielder said the project will help fishermen and should be finished by summer 2019. Fielder says the reefs protect spawning grounds and nursery habitats for walleye and whitefish and are expected to bolster those populations.
Phoenix is being care for at the Dearborn shelter.
