Stray animal population here in Vermont

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

One of the side stories of the just-completed Winter Olympics were the large number of stray dogs in Sochi, left behind when people were displaced by the construction of the Olympic venues.

Several U.S. Olympians made headlines by saying they planned to adopt some of the strays they came across while in Sochi, including Vermont's own Olympic snowboarding star Lindsey Jacobellis.

So what is the status of the stray population here in Vermont? To discuss that and more we were joined on The :30 by Nancy Cathcart, president of the Humane Society of Chittenden County, and Shayla McDowll, who serves as the society's volunteer and outreach manager. Watch the video for more.
