PAWS For Life

PAWS for Life’s mission is to help lost or unwanted animals; to return lost ones 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 is a private animal shelter. We operate on “limited admission” based on space, staffing and adoptability.

Tax Refund Donation Program

Did you know that a new state tax refund donation program allows you to use some or all of your refund to directly support the important work we do for the animals in the community? When you choose to donate from your state income tax refund to PAWS, your contribution will go directly to us. Please use our registration # 20083005782 to give when you file! As always thank you for your support!

Update to PAWS for Life Business Practices in Response to COVID-19

Effective today, April 6, 2020, we have found it necessary to modify our business practices in response to the increase in positive COVID-19 cases in the community of Pueblo. The health and safety of our staff and animals as well as our community is our priority. We realize there is a need now greater than ever to help the community members in need of our free pet food pantry. We will still offer this resource but all other onsite services will be by appointment ONLY and anyone entering the building will be required to wear a mask. We encourage you to look at our website www.pawspueblo.org daily to see what furry friends we have available. Thank you for your support while we get through this together.

New Practices:

Community Free Pet Food Program:

1. Come to PAWS campus at 800 N. Pueblo Blvd.
2. Stay in your car and call 719-543-6464.
3. Tell a member of our staff what you need and they will bring it to your car.

Adoptions:

1. Go to www.pawspueblo.org to see what pets we have available for adoption, this information changes daily so please check often.
2. Find a furry friend or two you’d like to meet in person
