Changes to the way things are done at Detroit Animal Care and Rescue are coming, after a dog's needless death.

WDIV reports that there have been numerous complaints about the horrible conditions and lack of care provided by the shelter. After a series of missteps, a pit bull mix named Lux died. Lux had been suffering from a prolapsed rectum. The pain medicine he was given gave him severe diarrhea which worsened his condition, leading to his death.

Administrators at the shelter say they're making progress. There are plans to double the number of field officers employed by the shelter from nine to 18, and they have just received a $123,000 grant with $1.3 million from the city.
