To read about the animals we've helped, please visit our Facebook & Twitter pages.
The focus of our Emergency Foster Care program is to provide for pet parents who are hospitalized or recovering from a medical procedure. We may be able to help in short-term emergencies and will review applications on a case-by-case basis. If approved for emergency foster care, please note that we can only keep animals for four to eight weeks, depending on availability of foster facilities. We are not equipped to provide long-term care.
All animals coming into emergency foster care must be current on vaccinations, in good health (some chronic health conditions may be accepted), and be well socialized. We cannot accept pets with severe separation anxiety, a history of biting or attacking, or aggression towards other animals.
We can no longer assist with housing issues. Due to the shortage of affordable housing in Southern Colorado, housing cases are extending out far too long. Because of this and the demand for assistance with housing cases, we can no longer provide this help
Complete the application in its entirety and provide the following:
• Proof of financial need (recent paystub, recent bank statement, SSI/SSDI award letter, food stamp card, other public assistance cards or award letters. We need this information for you, your spouse/significant other and all related adults in the household. Be sure to block out your Social Security Number.) • Documentation from your Veterinarian that indicates your pet(s) is current on vaccinations and is spayed/neutered. • Digital photo of your pet, if available.
Applications that are not complete or are not accompanied by the required documentation will not be reviewed. You must submit all the required documentation within 24 hours after you submit your application or your application will be declined.
