Curt Autry reports live from the Colonial Heights Animal Shelter this evening on how you can help give these dogs a forever home. He'll be introducing you to some of the dogs which have been in the shelter the longest throughout our evening broadcasts.

Some of the dogs in the shelter have been at the shelter for months. All government-sponsored shelters in the Metro Richmond area have to deal with budget constraints and the sad, hard truth is it means having to euthanize dogs because there's no space.
