Important Update

It’s official! Pueblo City Council and Pueblo County Commissioners have voted to award Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region the contract to carry out animal sheltering and control services in Pueblo once again. The move comes after Community Animal Services of Pueblo, operated by PAWS for Life, relinquished its license on March 27 following a state investigation into unacceptable conditions, including injured and ill animals going without care. HSPPR has been working with city and county officials since then to get the shelter back up and running.

HSPPR has, and always will, care deeply about the pets and people of Pueblo. We are excited about serving the Pueblo community in all capacities once again, and feel our experience and dedication to the community will lend to successful animal welfare services now and into the future. We have never turned away an animal in need. We offer compassionate care, without a timeline, to every animal that is brought to the shelter. We take great pride in protecting the health and safety of each animal, as well as the community. HSPPR is saving more animals than ever before and that commitment will not change.

To avoid confusion as we make the transition, we want to let you know we will refer to the former Pueblo Animal Services operation as Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region’s Pueblo campus and our location in Colorado Springs as our Colorado Springs campus. As the largest animal welfare organization in Southern Colorado, HSPPR will be able to provide more resources and the best possible outcomes for pets and people across the communities we serve.

We have lots of exciting changes to share as we transition into this long-term contract, with full services ramped back up by the end of the year. Check back here for regular updates.

In the meantime, we hope you’ll save the date for August 17 and join us for an open house, adoption celebration, and the opportunity to meet new staff!

Current Services Status

Admissions
The Pueblo shelter is open 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. daily to accept stray animals and assist owners who can no longer keep their pet.

Adoptions
Check www.hsppr.org/adopt for animals currently available for adoption. You can search by all campus locations, Pueblo only, or Colorado Springs only.

Animal Law Enforcement
Officers have resumed full services.

Deceased Animals
To report a deceased domestic animal on a sidewalk, road, or other public area, call Animal Law Enforcement. Any issue involving wildlife, such as an injured deer or orphaned wildlife, should be directed to the Division of Wildlife at 719.561.5300.

Lost & Found
If you’ve lost or found a pet, please click here to complete a report online as soon as possible. If you've lost a pet, we also recommend coming to the shelter in person to look for your pet. We work hard to match lost and found reports with animals coming into the shelter, but you know your pet best and can identify them the quickest.

Owner Requested Euthanasia
We are able to provide owner requested euthanasia services at our Colorado Springs and Pueblo locations.

Volunteer
Volunteer opportunities will be available once city and county officials have a long-term plan in place for the shelter. Please check back for more information.

Wildlife
Any issue involving wildlife, such as an injured deer or orphaned wildlife, should be directed to the Division of Wildlife at 719.561.5300.
