HSPPR to Break Ground on Expanded Veterinary Clinic

HSPPR to Break Ground on Expanded Veterinary ClinicGroundbreaking ceremony to be held Monday 


April 8, 2022 Colorado Springs, CO– Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) is set to break ground to expand their current veterinary clinic and surgery center on April 11th

“We are excited to be able to expand our veterinary clinic to help the homeless, injured, and sick pets that come to HSPPR each year,” said HSPPR President & CEO, Duane Adams. “This project will allow us to care for even more pets that need our assistance.”  

The Veterinary Clinic expansion project is set to cost $7M and construction should conclude by the end of the calendar year. The project will increase HSPPR’s capacity to perform an additional 5,000 surgeries each year.  

Highly qualified veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians use the current 3,000 square foot clinic to perform spay/neuter surgeries, provide routine care, and work on emergency cases for homeless animals. The new expanded clinic will provide a larger space to care for more animals at any given time. HSPPR is committed to investing improving facilities to increase the capacity to care for shelter animals. 

The groundbreaking ceremony will be held on Monday, April 11th with HSPPR Director of Veterinary Services, Julie Crosby, available for interviews. 

Please note, the current clinic will be under construction on this date and we will not be able to offer access to the space. We are providing b-roll taken in April 2022 here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iJDfRsN4RxFHraCwa4Uh0bB_deZXlL9a/view?usp=sharing
