A very special delivery for Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region and Pueblo Animal Services! We are happy to be able to offer assistance to Acadiana Animal Aid in Lafayette, LA, our long-time transfer partner, during this difficult time. We took in 38 dogs - HSPPR took 21 dogs and PAS 17 dogs - via private plane from shelters in coastal Louisiana parishes. They were not strays from the areas affected by Hurricane Harvey, but rather dogs that were already available for adoption.

Great news! HSPPR has received our second 4-star rating (the highest possible ranking!) in a row from Charity Navigator. According to Charity Navigator, only 26% of charities have received at least two consecutive 4-star evaluations! This prestigious 4-star rating indicates HSPPR adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way.

At Foothills Elementary School, art teacher Ellen Enger has come up with a creative way to raise money for homeless pets in the community and teach her students about responsible pet ownership at the same time. To honor February as Responsible Pet Ownership Month, the 66 students of Enger’s kindergarten art class as well as 77 3rd grade art students constructed and painted papier-mâché cat and dog piggy banks, then distributed them around the Rockrimmon area to collect donations for HSPPR during the month of March.

Gretchen Pressley, the organization's community relations manager, told The Gazette the programs the Humane Society sponsored have helped boost their adoption numbers. Whatever the reason, the exceptional news should bring a smile to all animal lovers' faces.
