Are you one of those people that can’t say no? Do you go ga-ga over cats and dogs? Are you in trouble for bringing home stray animals? Your time is now.

All of us love our furry friends! Don't lie, we all want to fill our house with adopted animals (or, at least, we daydream about it! Darn it, apartment leases). Colorado Springs is hosting different events around the city to help animal shelters. Proceeds from these pet-friendly events will go back into the animal shelters. 

Colorado Springs packed this weekend with adoption fairs, too! So who knows? Go grab a beer or two and maybe you’ll find a new best friend along the way. You wouldn’t be alone either. Colorado is one of the top-ranking pet-friendly states in America. From brews to paws, there’s something for everyone to do!
