Policy change made at Cleveland Animal Shelter

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (WRCB) - A grassroots effort has resulted in a policy change at the Cleveland Animal Shelter.

Last month, we told you about two teens who had picked out a dog at the shelter.

When they went to pick up the lab, she'd been put down.

Leaders of the shelter say it was an honest mistake but, a group called "Cleveland for a No-Kill City" used it as an example of why a policy change was needed.

The Times Free Press reports this week, the City Council approved a proposal to give surrendered animals 72 hours before they are put down, the same as strays.

Before they were only given 24 hours.
