SAVE a Life
Adopt a Homeless Pet

Foster or Forever Home Needed!

Meet sweet Tessa!

Tessa is a 5yr old Pitbull mix with a heart of gold. She loves to play and is always up for her next walk or hike, but snuggling is definitely her favorite activity.Tessa does well with kids but is selective of other animals, so she will need to be the only queen furbaby in the house. She is a little underweight, and we are hoping that by placing her in a loving home away from the stresses of the kennel environment, she will be able to relax and put on some extra pounds. PAWS will provide her daily enzymes and food for as long as she is in foster care.

If you or someone you know is interested in fostering or adopting sweet Tessa, please email us at board@pawspueblo.org.


Applicants will be required to attend our volunteer/foster orientation and agree to a home check. Thank you so much for your consideration.

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.

This is a special invitation to sign up, get your team together, and help PAWS just as you have in the past! This tournament is one of our biggest fundraisers, so if you can get more players to participate, please do so. It is a fun day with your chance to win $10,000 on a hole in one and to bid on an impressive selection of silent auction items. Also, if you or your company would like to sponsor, we would truly appreciate it. This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are limited to 72 players. So please get your entries in quickly. Should the tournament have to be canceled, your money will be refunded. As always, thank you for your support!
