DETROIT (AP) — Teams of volunteers will fan out across Detroit over two days in search of stray or loose dogs roaming city streets, overgrown fields and in and out of abandoned houses.
The Ann Arbor-based World Animal Awareness Society begins its canine survey Saturday morning.
Filmmaker and executive director Tom McPhee hopes to get some type of accurate count of Detroit's strays which some estimate to be in the thousands. The survey is part of his American Strays research project, a documentary in syndication on the Internet.
Volunteers will take photos and use smartphones to count free-roaming dogs. McPhee says teams are not allowed to go onto private property or into any abandoned structures.
No accurate count currently exists of how many stray dogs there are in the 139-square-mile Detroit.
