GVAWL scrambles to appease concerns about new shelter

Inability to house vicious animals a problem for city
By Chris Rourke.
A newly constructed animal shelter has fallen short of expectations for impound by City of Gunnison leaders — who helped pay for the project in exchange for use of the facility. Gunnison Valley Animal Welfare League (GVAWL) representatives say the problem is the result of a misunderstanding. Leaders from both sides have been meeting for the last month to iron out the issue of how to handle vicious animals, in addition to other operating procedures.
