Each month, the HSPPR holds an event at an area brewery to raise funds for its four-legged residents. For each drink sold, $1 will be donated to the Humane Society. (FOX21News.com)
  3. A recent team-up between the Colorado Springs Police Department and Alabama law enforcement officials helped bring a suspected child predator into custody. An undercover detective with the Rainbow City Police Department, who was posing as a young girl online, was contacted by an adult man in Colorado Springs.
