Proposal would make Colorado first "no-kill" state

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. A new proposal may ask voters to make Colorado the country's first "no-kill" state. That would mean shelters would be prohibited from euthanizing animals unless they were sick or suffering.

According to George Brown, an attorney out of Aurora who is leading the initiative, Colorado shelters put down 30,000 healthy animals each year.

Currently, state law requires shelters to hold all animals for a minimum of five days, but if they go unclaimed, the shelter may put them down at their discretion.
