There is no denying that Coloradans love their pets, but that doesn’t mean they all get the care they deserve — and that’s where the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region comes in.
Despite its name, the HSPPR is incredibly active not just in the Colorado Springs area, but in Pueblo as well. According to its 2016 annual report, the organization’s Pueblo Animal Services were responsible for the intake of 5,895 dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rabbits last year — and 4,332 of those were successfully rehomed.
“Since being invited to manage animal services and animal control in Pueblo in September of 2002, Pueblo Animal Services has made incredible strides in helping reduce pet overpopulation and increasing the quality of life for pets in Pueblo,” said Julie Justman, director of Pueblo Animal Services for HSPPR.
Just like the HSPPR in Colorado Springs, the organization’s Pueblo branch offers services ranging from pet adoption to minor procedures such as microchip implantation and low-cost spay and neutering services. The Pueblo division also hosts events, such as the annual Pueblo Pet Check, during which animal owners can bring their pets in for a free wellness exam, as well as to receive rabies and distemper vaccinations.
“Our staff and volunteers are passionate about helping animals and are truly dedicated to making Pueblo a better place for people and pets,” said Justman. “We are so thankful to be serving the Pueblo community every day.”
