By: KKTV

It has been a tough year for many non-profits in Southern Colorado. A local no-kill shelter is also in need right now.

Paws For Life is in desperate need of adult food, puppy food, blankets, dish soap, detergent, toys, collars and leashes.

Workers can give you a receipt for a tax write-off. Your donation is tax deductible.

Call (719) 543-6464 or drop off donations at the building. Paws For Life is located at 800 N. Pueblo Blvd.

Paws For Life is a private, non-profit, no-kill shelter for dogs in Pueblo. They are funded entirely by donors and grants.

The Paws For Life shelter houses 50-60 dogs at any one time. Because they are a no-kill shelter, they will keep every furry resident until it is adopted out or becomes too ill to treat.

    I sent a strongly worded complaint to a VP OF KKTV and he replied saying they would check it out. Haven't seen any evidence to that fact.

    Where has the money gone? Nearly 2 million dollars and all you built was 16 dog runs? If you would work WITH the community, you could get your dogs exposure for adoption. Why are you so hard to work with to get a dog adopted out? Why do you continue to be nothing more than a DOG WAREHOUSE??? Does the donor (or donors family)realize that you are a fraud???

    What makes them a wonderful organization? The documented history of abuse and neglect or the new shelter that is 90 percent empty with dogs still in the gravel?

    They are funded entirely by donations-that is correct, but they didnt mention the huge donations they have already recieved-millions. They are many other non profits with less money doing more.

    And just how "desperate" can they be with just 17 dogs listed for adoption on Petfinder, and a capacity, including the old shelter, of 60 plus dogs?

    @Just wondering, PAWS was given $3 Million several years ago in an estate will with the stipulation that half go to a new shelter and half to operations. The last IRS 990 form I saw showed they were sitting on it all. They spent half this year for a "new shelter" although they still house many dogs in the old substandard shelter. And where the other $1.5 million is at, I'm just wondering too. This group can't even put up and maintain a decent website. How about it KKTV, you have any investigative reporters to answer these questions?

    What happened to the thousands upon thousands donated that we read about earlier? Squandered? Mis-used?
