       Starting in March, a weekly TV series will feature the Westside-based Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR).
       Titled “Rocky Mountain Animal Rescue,” the shows are scheduled Saturday nights at 8 p.m. on the Nat Geo WILD network. The premiere will be March 3.
       Also spotlighted will be Pueblo Animal Services (PAS), a division of HSPPR, which has provided services in Pueblo since 2002.
       “From thrilling animal rescues to medical emergencies, from interesting animals to heart-warming adoption stories, you'll get an up-close and personal look at the people behind the 'Happy Tails, Happy Hearts' at HSPPR and PAS, and what it takes to make them happen,” a press release states.
       A youtube trailer for the show can be seen at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIOH3oWl58I&feature=youtu.be.
       Contracting for animal services with Colorado Springs and El Paso County, HSPPR's shelter and offices are at 610 Abbot Lane, about three blocks east of Eighth Street (near Walmart). Services include adoption options, animal cruelty investigations, subsidized spays/neuters and a trap-neuter-return program for feral cats.
