'HELLISH' SHELTERS: The protesters called for stricter animal shelter

collars are often picked up
More than 300 animal rights advocates protested outside the Council of
Agriculture building yesterday, calling on the government to improve
the quality of animal shelters.

According to the activists, more than 1.14 million dogs have been
caught and sent to animal shelters over the past 12 years, but more
than 960,000 never made it out again. They added that the shelters are
like hell for animals.
