It’s a barbecue that should never have been necessary. Employees from the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region gathered in the parking lot of the Pueblo animal shelter Tuesday to celebrate their return, at least temporarily, as the shelter’s operators.
The Pueblo City Council and Pueblo County Commission both approved a 90-day contract with the Humane Society following the decision to end an agreement with PAWS for Life. The shelter, which was temporarily shut down earlier this year, is scheduled to officially open for business again today.
To describe what happened at the shelter during the first three months of this year as a train wreck is probably being too charitable.
