DETROIT (AP) - A nonprofit group has secured licensing to operate a no-kill animal shelter in Detroit that it says could help the city deal with large numbers of stray and abandoned dogs.

The Detroit News reports (https://bit.ly/1GXCZiQ ) Detroit Dog Rescue, initially formed in 2011 as a foster-based operation, opened its shelter on the city’s east side in May 2014 and has now secured a permit from the state sanctioning the operation.

Kristina Rinaldi, the group’s executive director, says Detroit Dog Rescue is known for taking in troubled animals that most people regard as unadoptable. It now has room for roughly 30 dogs at a time.

The group’s licensing comes as Detroit Dog Rescue had been at odds with Detroit Animal Control over regulations for taking in strays. City policies are being reviewed.
