A dog is known as man’s best friend. However, in the Lansing area over the past decade, man’s best friend has seen some rough times. Dogfighting, abuse and neglect are problems that many dogs endure in the Lansing metro area. Ingham Animal Control takes in or picks up thousands of pets every year. “We take in dogs, bunnies, cats, farm animals that have been in bad situations,” explained animal control worker Trisha Struck.
