Final Weekend For Life O'Riley Residents

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) -- It's the final weekend at home for residents of Lansing's Life O'Riley Mobile Home Park before they're evicted.

Tuesday workers from the Ingham County Health Department condemned the south Lansing mobile home park due to serous sanitation and public safety issues.

Residents 6 News caught up with Saturday said they still didn't know where they will go once they leave Life O'Riley.

"The trailers are terrible, filthy, everything. We're having trouble finding places because we don't make enough income. If we cannot find a place we have to go stay at the motel," said Crystal Rhines, a resident at the Life O'Riley Mobile Home Park.

Meanwhile, many are reaching out to help those who are forced to leave their homes. 

Saturday the Capital Area Humane Society opened its doors to people's pets. Workers hosted a free wellness and vaccine clinic from noon to 4 p.m. to help prepare pets for the transition they're facing, whether that means moving, going into temporary placement or finding new families.

"People consider their pets a part of the family. When they face a disaster, the worst thing that can happen is for them to lose a part of their family on top of their home. That's why our emphasis today is helping each family and getting the pets in shape, getting the owners prepared and assisting however we can to try to keep those animals with their families," said Julia Palmer, the President & CEO of Capital Area Humane Society.

If you are a current Life O'Riley resident but missed Saturday's clinic, you can still get help for your pet. Call the shelter at (517) 626-6060.
