How would you like to help homeless animals? Contact your local animal shelter to find out what you can do.
Who We Are
Animal Welfare and Protection Society is a no-kill (501(C)3 not-for-profit) shelter located in Pueblo, Colorado. Currently we are licensed for dogs, and may have anywhere from 40-50 dogs and puppies available for adoption. All of our dogs are up to date on their basic shots. Each dog over 3.5 months is spayed/neutered before it is adopted or an appointment is made before the dog leaves the shelter. A certificate is given to spay/neuter any dog that is adopted before it is spay/neutered. The certificate is honored by some Pueblo vets at no extra charge to you (check with Shelter staff for a list of participating vets). All adopted dogs must be altered by the appointment date. Our affordable adoption fees vary depending on the age of the animal and other special considerations - please ask about fees if not posted.
Adopting a Friend
Due to the problems that can arise when someone is surprised with a live gift- we prefer that all potential adopters visit the shelter, and visit in pawson the dogs we have for adoption. You should bring the whole family, including dogs, to meet your new family members. All adopters must complete an application. Adoption fees vary depending on the age of the animal and other special considerations. Please ask about fees if not posted...fee includes distemper/parvo shots and spay/neuter. If an animal has been given it rabies shot, the adoption fee is increased by $10. Our adoption fees remain very affordable.
