TCRAS serves all of Teller County plus the surrounding counties of El Paso, Douglas and Park Counties.
TCRAS has been in existence for about 11 years. It was founded because our county was going to contract with the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region in Colorado Springs. Our community decided that was too far (approx. 25 miles) for our animals to be taken in addition to the fear of animals being euthanized. TCRAS is a No-Kill shelter that serves, protects and rehomes adoptable companion animals. We are run with a small staff and rely on our volunteers to assist in many areas. If you are interested in volunteering with us please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com.
Come Meet our Pets:
Our animals are available for viewing at our shelter located at 308 Weverville Rd. during the hours of: Mon - Fri from 10 am to 5 pm and Sat from 10 am to 5 pm. No appointment is necessary. We also do adoption fairs at PetCO at Uintah Gardens and Petsmart - South Gate. You can check our website for times. www.tcrascolorado.com.
Our Adoption Process:
Our fees vary depending on age and size of animal being adopted. You will be asked to fill out an adoption application upon arrival. This information helps us to find the right match for you and/or your family. If you rent you will be asked to provide a written approval from your landlord as to the acceptance of animals and any weight limits they may have. If you are adopting any of the bully breeds you will be required to have a 6 foot enclosure for them. TCRAS reserves the right to refuse any adoption we see as being Inappropriate.
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, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
