Owner Requested Euthanasia

If your family pet's health is such that his quality of life has seriously deteriorated, you may decide it is time to give him a humane, caring end-of-life - also known as euthanasia.  Pueblo Animal Services offers low-cost pet euthanasia to our community's pet owners. Please note that we cannot allow you to be with your pet, so if you wish to be with him in his last moments, please contact your veterinarian. We're sorry, but we are unable to perform euthanasia for large companion animals/livestock such as horses, goats or pigs.

You do not need an appointment to bring your pet in for euthanasia. You may bring your pet to the shelter between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., 7 days a week.

Please rest assured your pet will be treated with compassion and respect by our caring staff. For more information on euthanasia services, please call Pueblo Animal Services at 719.544.3005 x2.
