Funds donated to pay cremation for dog shot by deputies


    Staff Writer

    Sufficient funds have been donated to the Humane Society of Pagosa Springs to cover the cremation costs of the dog killed by law enforcement officers last week.

    According to Mike Stoll, Humane Society director, enough funds have been received to help Kupa’s owner, Vicki Previte, with the expense.

    Kupa was shot and killed by Archuleta County Sheriff’s Office deputies last Friday during a welfare check.

    Stoll said that the Humane Society will continue to accept donations for its operations and funds, but will no longer accept funds for this particular case.
