End of Life Services

Owner requested euthanasia

As pet guardians, you may have to make the difficult decision to euthanize a pet due to serious illness, injury, or if your pet is experiencing a significantly diminished quality of life. In these situations, it may be necessary for you to consider having your pet euthanized in order to spare her from suffering. Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region recommends you speak with your veterinarian for guidance in this end-of-life decision.

HSPPR does offer euthanasia and cremation services for pets, but does not provide the opportunity to stay with your animal during the procedure. If you wish to stay with your pet during the euthanasia procedure, please contact your veterinarian. HSPPR’s staff of compassionate, certified technicians provide humane euthanasia through a drug injection as recommended by the American Veterinary Medical Association. Your pet is treated with dignity and respect by our caring staff, and cremation options are offered through a private cremation service.

Please be aware we require owners to provide proof of pet ownership and personal identification. We are not able to perform euthanasia services for large companion animals/livestock such as goats, pigs, or horses.
