Berrien County Uses a Gas Chamber
posted 5 years ago
July 2010 – Berrien County Animal Control is one of only 10 animal shelters in Michigan that is NOT using the most humane method to euthanize cats and dogs. Berrien County Animal Control officers euthanize 7-11 cats and dogs together (depending on their size) at a time in a gas chamber. Imagine how scared the animals are being loaded up together and wheeled into the gas chamber. Berrien County could easily transition to humane euthanasia by injection if they wanted to…
Please save a cat or dog from a horrible death – Adopt from the Berrien County Animal Shelter.
Pros: Procedures Can Be Updated
Cons: Uses a Gas Chamber

Doing the best they can
posted 8 years ago
This is a county shelter working with limited funds and relying on donations and contributions. Do they wish it was different? I'm sure they do, but they do what they can with what they have. I have called them several times to report animal neglect/abuse cases and they have always come right out and checked the situations out. When someone is reported they also have a very good follow-up plan to make sure that the animals are cared for. I think they deserve a big pat on the back!!!
Pros: unappreciated staff working with few dollars
Cons: limited funding
