Here in Western Colorado, we love our pets. More than two-thirds of us have at least one dog or cat. Many of our pets come from animal shelters, which not only find homes for unwanted pets, they also help reduce pet overpopulation and educate people on animal care.
KVNF visited three local shelters, in Delta, Montrose and Ridgway, to find out what they're doing for pets and people. (NOTE: This show originally aired on May 16, 2019 and has been updated with a new interview about shelters during the pandemic.)
