GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Since CLAWS opened its doors in 2007 more than 4,000 furry felines have been adopted.
The all-volunteer shelter started seven years ago with only resources to care for 20 cats and now they have up to 150 at a time.
Valerie Mazrin, President of CLAWS, said the volunteers who help everyday are to thank for their accomplishments and expansions.
Mesa County Animal Services announced last week they will no longer be accepting pet cats. Mazrin said because of this decision they will have more cats coming to their shelter and are always looking for volunteers to help out. Donations are also accepted.
