The Southern Colorado Spay and Neuter Association is proud to also be an all save animal shelter! Operating as an all save cat and dog shelter in Pueblo, CO, SoCo Spay and Neuter Rescue is a busy place! We have many cats available for adoption as well as many precious dogs! Check out our photos for a selection of our dogs and cats available for adoption! We love Adoptapet.com-you can look at the animals we have available for adoption there! Many of our beautiful pictures were taken by our friends at Shelter Me Photography, another non-profit organization. You can learn more about that awesome organization by going to www.sheltermephotography.org.
Our dogs have all been heart worm tested and are receiving HeartGuard monthly. They are all current on a distemper/parvo combination vaccine, a K-9 Influenza vaccine, rabies, and a bordatella. Of course, they are all fixed, so the only thing the new owner of these dogs would be responsible for are booster shots for the remainder of the dog's life, and the purchase of the monthly HeartGuard prevention pills(also available at our clinic!).
If interested in adopting a cat, then just visit Pueblo's PetCo and PetSmart stores!
Many of our cats that are available for adoption are housed there.
Please remember when adopting any animal, that we may not have any background information on them. They may have come from a terrible situation, and they may be very scared. Some of the cats we adopt have been stray cats- we don't know if they have ever even been in a house! It may take awhile for them to adjust and we ask that you are patient with them. We have had people adopt a cat one day and bring it back the very next because "it just hid the whole time". Not every cat (or dog) will just fit right in immediately and it would be unfair to expect that. Sometimes though, it just doesn't work. We know that this may be the case, which is why we always ask that you bring the animal back to the clinic. If you bring it back within two weeks of adopting it, then we will provide you with a refund for your adoption fee. We will ask why you are returning the animal, so we may better understand the animal's needs and get it into a home where those needs are met.
Also, we want you to know that we care deeply for these animals, and their welfare. Sometimes they may have an underlying illness that doesn't present itself in the time that the animal is with us (ex. upper-respiratory infection, ringworm). If you find that when you take your animal home it has a medical issue, please call us and we will have our veterinarian assess the problem at no charge to you. This offer is only for the first two weeks after adoption. If after that, there is a condition that you are concerned with, you will be responsible for having it treated at your own cost.
We have many special needs animals looking for their perfect home, so if you are interested, please call and speak with our rescue manager Monday thru Friday at 719-566-3833. Being that we have a vet on-site, we are able to provide for these special babies and care for their every need, as opposed to other shelters that don't have the facilities or care available to them.
