Shelters are not only providing black pets with colorful bandanas and collars, but they are also beginning to use professional photography and lower adoption fees.

Why We Need Wildlife Crossings: Safer Roads For Animals & Motorists

(WILDLIFE/ANIMAL SAFETY) Wildlife crossings in Colorado are proving to reduce collisions and aid with species interbreeding. There are currently 30 such overpasses and underpasses throughout the state, and the CDOT and Colorado Parks and Wildlife are collaborating to identify other spaces along highways that could benefit from them. Similar wildlife crossings have proven effective in other states, including Florida, which has seen a reduction in road-related deaths of the state's panther population. Although such crossings can be expensive to construct--ranging between $300,000 and upwards of $1 million, not having them can also prove to be expensive. Regardless of the cost, there's no denying that safer roads for animals means safer roads for us, too. Read on to learn more about the pros and cons of wildlife pass-throughs. -- Global Animal
