Broward animal shelters to get outside review

The Sun Sentinel reports on the Broward County Commission's decision to have the Humane Society of the United States' animal services consulting arm review local animal shelters. An investigation last summer uncovered food shortages, animal carcasses rotting in maggot-infested bags, and workers taking valuable dogs for their own profit. Over 20,000 animals are taken in annually at its shelters in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach, or more than 380 animals a week.
