Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region
Founded in 1949, Humane Society of the Pikes Region is the largest animal welfare group for homeless and abused animals in Southern Colorado. HSPPR is a local, independent nonprofit not affiliated with national organizations such as ASPCA or Humane Society of the United States, relying on donations to fund its work. HSPPR staff rescue and care for animals in distress, provide medical care for abused and injured animals, reunite lost pets with their owners, find loving homes for homeless animals, and investigate animal cruelty and enforce animal ordinances.

As an open admission shelter, HSPPR helps all animals in need – no animal is turned away. More than 26,000 animals a year are helped by the shelter. HSPPR works every day to end the euthanasia of unwanted animals through extensive community outreach and innovative programs.
