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. Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region offers pet euthanasia to our community's pet owners. Please note we cannot allow you to be with your pet when he is put to sleep, so if you wish to be with him in his last moments, contact your veterinarian.

To provide a better experience and better service during this difficult time, appointments must be made in advance for owner surrender euthanasia services. Please click here to make an appointment. We require owners to be present to sign the required authorization paperwork. If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency requiring euthanasia services, you may bring your pet to the shelter between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., seven days a week. An appointment is not required for emergency euthanasia services. All euthanasia services include cremation. Your pet will be treated with compassion, dignity and respect by our caring staff and volunteers.

We’re sorry, we are not able to perform euthanasia services for large companion animals/livestock such as goats, pigs, or horses. Please contact your veterinarian. For more information on our euthanasia services, call 719-302-8723.
