About Us


A kitten lost and alone. A dog wandering along a roadway, cars rushing past. An abandoned cat left in a deserted apartment. An underfed dog left in a backyard with no food or water. 

For most of us, our pets are an important, cherished member of the family. But that's not the case for all animals. What happens to these animals? Where do they go? Who takes care of them and protects them?

Founded in 1949, the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region is a private, nonprofit animal welfare organization dedicated to the care and protection of domesticated animals in our community. HSPPR rescues and cares for animals in distress, reunites lost pets with their owners, finds loving homes for homeless animals and teaches people how to properly care for and respect animals, as well as enforces licensing and other animal ordinances.

Our Mission:
A compassionate society where animals are cared for and valued.
