PAWS for Life Animal Welfare & Protection Society serves Pueblo and southern Colorado.

About Our Shelter:

"The mission of the PAWS for Life shelter is to take in lost and unwanted animals; to return them to their owners whenever possible or, after having them spayed or neutered, place them in good homes, and to educate the public about intelligent and humane treatment of animals." PAWS for Life Animal Welfare & Protection Society is a no-kill animal shelter. We organized in 1978 and have grown and found home for thousands of homeless animals since then. We are currently in a capital campaign to build a new shelter facility and animal campus that is projected to be LEED platinum certified. When it is built, it will be the only one like it in the entire world!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
